Now in its fourth generation, the Kia Sportage has had an exciting redesign. Well known for being a stylish and versatile SUV, the Sportage's new look is nothing short of bold. It's safe to say that its designers have delivered as promised and produced a dynamic and sporty model. The Sportage is also the most aerodynamic yet, and strikes a balance between good looks and practicality.View Sportage deals Find a branch View gallery
To the front of the new Kia Sportage, an enlarged version of its characteristic tiger nose grille can be spotted, along with extended headlamps that sweep the sharply detailed bonnet. Combined with the front fog lamps, highlighted by chrome blades, all of this provides the Sportage with a powerful appearance, which is carried throughout the entire exterior.
The interior is spectacular and features high-quality materials, giving the driver and passengers plenty of space in both the front and rear. The centre fascia is functional and driver-oriented to enable maximum user engagement. It has been specifically designed to be clearly visible during driving and the enhanced soundproofing measures reduce exterior noise to a minimum.
The increased exterior and interior dimensions provide a comfortable driving experience with enough space for everyone in the car. There is a notable increase in the legroom and the three-way heated seats, with their 10-way power control for the driver's seat and 8-way for the passenger seat, ensure that the journey is always a pleasant one. Add the dual-strength seat heating to this and you are ready for those cold mornings!
The Sportage successfully combines attractive design with practical functionality - the boot alone has been expanded from 465 to 503 litres, providing you with enough space for all of your shopping! Moreover, this model follows the Kia tradition of scoring high on occupant and pedestrian safety as it achieved a maximum five-star safety rating in the Euro NCAP crash performance tests.
The New Sportage features a host of new and advanced on-board technologies, making it the most high-tech car in its class. Some of these technologies include Kia's latest audio-visual navigation system (AVN) - a touchscreen infotainment and sat-nav system with a DAB digital radio. It also features Kia's Connected Services with up-to-date driving information. It is powered by TomTom and features speed camera locations and alerts^, live traffic updates^, weather forecasts and local search. And the best news is that it will be available to Sportage buyers free of charge for seven years following the car's purchase.
The Sportage has a rear-view parking camera, a Smart Power Tailgate, which opens automatically when the key is near the tailgate; new Smart Welcome function that turns on interiors and door handle lights and unfolds the door mirrors once the smart key fob is within 1.3-1.7 metres of the door and Dynamic Bending Headlamps, that sweep the road in line with the steering wheel for greater visibility and improved safety.
Another added benefit to the all-new Sportage is the wireless charger for mobile phones, which activates when a compatible device is placed on the charging pad - and it even warns you if you have left the vehicle without your phone!
