What’s your checklist for the ultimate road trip? How about heated seats, Lane Keep Assist, High Beam Assist, a reversing camera and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto so you can run all your favourite smartphone apps right on the infotainment system? The Kia Sportage offers all these features as standard on ‘2’ models, and there are four trim levels above that offering even more useful features. Wowser. Throw in a choice of powerful turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, the option of a manual or automatic transmission and the option of all-wheel drive, and what you have is the ultimate family SUV.
The Sportage is elegant and oozing with quality. Its powerful front end, timeless silhouette and LED headlights (‘4’ models onwards) are a sight to behold. On the inside, GT-Line models impress with premium black leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats.
Think of all the things that make a great drive, and there’s a very good chance the Kia Sportage offers them all: cruise control, a reversing camera, a powerful engine, low running costs, the choice of an automatic or manual gearbox. Tick, tick, tick …
With 491-litres of boot space and a Smart Power Tailgate (GT-Line S), the Sportage has space for everything. The boot capacity stands at 1,480-litres with the rear seats down and there’re ISOFIX mounting points on both rear outermost seats.
Living with it
With a variety of smart ways to accommodate different cargo shapes and sizes, a powerful turbocharged engine range, and top specification, the Kia Sportage is more than easy to live with - it’s a pleasure to own and run every single day.
