In a fiercely fought compact SUV segment, the Sportage manages to offer value motoring in a crossover that has style and practicality. The SUV has still a lot to offer those interested in a spacious, well-built vehicle.
The stylish good looks of the Sportage help it to stand out from the crowd along with its strong performance with three engines – there are three diesel units and a 1.6 petrol engine are available.
As with most crossover cars, the Sportage will go off-road with decent performance but for the most part drivers will tend to stick to tarmac and the 1.7 litre diesel is not only cheap to run – it should return around 55mpg - but offers impressive performance too.
Over long journeys, the Kia Sportage is a comfortable place to be and it an agile performer around town too. There's plenty of room in the cabin for adult passengers and a large boot as well as additional underfloor storage. The driver's view is also excellent and the car is very quiet, even when driven at speed.
As with all Kia models, there's a lot of standard equipment including cruise control, rain sensing wipers, air con and alloy wheels. Other models also come with dual zone air con, panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors and half leather seats. There's also a wide range of safety features fitted including electronic stability control and hill hold.
The Sportage is the firm's bestselling model in this country with a small army of satisfied owners. There have been various design tweaks and equipment upgrades in recent years with another radical overhaul planned for the near future.
