The Kia Sportage is known for combining innovation with practicality and has become a firm family favourite in the UK since the launch of its third-generation model in 2010. This new facelifted 68 plate version is available on the Motability Scheme for nil advance payment, making it a savvy and stylish buy.
Arnold Clark Kia Franchise Manager David Munton said:
‘With its good looks, high ride height, great visibility and ease of access, the Sportage ticks all the boxes for Motability buyers.’
It’s almost as if the Sportage was specifically designed for Motability users, with its supportive, hip-height driving position with centre armrest, wide opening doors and plenty of handy storage areas. The 60/40 reclining rear folding seats are easy to pop down using a lever at the side, revealing 1480 litres of space.
Even with the seats up, there’s a 491-litre boot with a floor that’s flush with the opening, so loading and unloading should be stress-free. Legroom is generous, too, even in that central back seat, keeping everybody happy no matter where they’re sitting.
A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system offers Bluetooth connectivity, a DAB radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice control as standard, plus there’s a reversing camera to make parking a breeze.
With a range of safety features such as hill start assist, emergency stop signalling and trailer stability assist, the Sportage has an impressive Euro NCAP 5-star rating. And the little things are taken care of too, like electrically adjustable door mirrors, cruise control and speed sensitive power steering.
The new Sportage 1.6-litre petrol engine in this model is capable of 130bhp, giving you lots of extra power when you’re driving around town and a relaxing experience when you’re cruising down the motorway.
Emission-reducing technology is built in, giving you a cleaner drive and a redesigned chassis makes light work of steering. Economy figures come in at 39.8mpg and 162g/km of CO2.
This model is available to eligible Motability Scheme members for nil advance payment.
