After a month of being on sale, the Kia Sportage became one of the UK’s bestsellers after racking up 1,521 sales in February.
The SUV has now reached nearly 3,000 sales since launch and has helped the carmaker grow its market share to 3.46%.
Already, Kia dealers say there is a big demand for the excellent SUV and they are likely to shift big numbers in March also.
Around 5,000 orders have been placed by Brits wanting the latest generation of Sportage which is an excellent compact SUV.
Indeed, we highlighted previously at First Vehicle Leasing just how impressive the Kia Sportage is and another recent spell behind the wheel underlined its excellent offering.
Kia Sportage is well-designed and well-made
The Kia Sportage is well-designed and well-made and has a solid feel and it is also packed with equipment. Some of the engines offer impressive levels of performance and economy with the potential of 75 mpg.
Kia also says this is the safest Sportage yet made and it is packed with safety kit including autonomous emergency braking which will operate when it detects an imminent collision.
The ride is also refined and impressive while the seats are supportive and comfortable. The cabin is a great place to spend a long time in and it’s a great motorway cruiser too.
