The Kia Sportage is practical and spacious, making it particularly suitable for families. This compact SUV is also easy to drive, comes well specified and is available as a two or all-wheel drive model.
This agreeably chunky five-door vehicle boasts body-coloured elements (including electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors) and 16-inch alloy wheels as standard. Exterior lighting includes low-to-high-beam headlights and front fog lamps.
Providing room for five travellers, the Sportage also offers above-average cargo volume, with a minimum-capacity 503-litre boot space that can be quickly increased to 1,492 litres with rear seats folded. Standard interior features include air conditioning, four electric windows (one-touch on the driver’s side) and a rake-and-reach-adjustable and leather-clad steering wheel. The latter is also fitted with multifunction controls, enabling easy and safe operation of the vehicle’s six-speaker sound system. Bluetooth connectivity is included as standard too.
Entry-level models are fitted with a 1.6-litre 130bhp petrol unit. Paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, this returns up to 42.2mpg and produces a 156g/km CO2 emissions figure. For optimal fuel-efficiency, look for Sportage variants that are installed with a 1.7-litre 114bhp diesel engine, returning as much as 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km. Maximum potency is achievable when a 1.6-litre 174bhp petrol unit is underneath the bonnet. Riding on 19-inch alloy wheels, this Sportage iteration produces 265Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 9.4 seconds.
The vehicle comes with Euro NCAP’s full five-star crash-test rating and a range of safety features such as Anti-lock Braking System, Hill-hold Assist, multiple airbags and ISOFIX preparation.
