New Kia Sportage models include variants with two new petrol engines available for powering you and your family about town and out in the country.  Steadily becoming more-and-more popular with their striking new designs, Kia has provided another sleek looking medium-size SUV to their fleet that catches the eye and drives very well.

A quick walk around the 2016 Kia Sportage shows a strong body shape that is modern and attractive.  More rounded than its predecessor, the Sportage has wider and bolder wheel arches, a more endearing nose and set of quadrangle fog lights inserted into the body-coloured front bumper.  Similar to Nissan’s Qashqai, the Kia Sportage SUV slopes steeply from mid sections of the roof, down and over the tailgate, giving the new Sportage a sporty and elegant shape ­ particularly for an SUV.  Very crisp lines and detailing around the rear-end of the Sportage are pleasing and easy on the eye.  A rear roof spoiler, quad exhausts and attractive new wheel designs ensure that you’ll be grabbing plenty of attention when out on the road.

Inside the 2016 Kia Sportage there is good space for five adults, the seats remaining comfortable for the long haul.  Modern Sportage interiors are loaded with plenty of technology and, for the money, the new Kia Sportage SUV is a very well-equipped machine.  Smartphone linked audio, Bluetooth communications and parking aids are just some of the excellent features you’ll enjoy in a new Kia Sportage.  The smooth dash design has some attractive chrome touches, and the steering wheel and gear knob are leather bound.  A large and clear high-definition touch display-screen is located in the centre of the dash, and there are audio and cruise controls mounted on the Sportage steering wheel.

Kia Sportage Premium models enjoy some really nice leather seats which have cooling and heating functions for the front.  An optional, massive panoramic sunroof extends the length of the roof offering great star gazing potential.  With the overhead glass roof, the light cabin ambience gives the Sportage an extra dollop of perceived spaciousness.  Three 12 Volt power outlets and two USB charge ports, a hands-free smart power tailgate and a Smart Park Assist System (SPAS) are standard.  A really cool new feature is the wireless charging pad that is designed to charge your phone without your phone cords; this is situated in the centre console (Platinum model only).

A five-star safety rating is standard on all new Kia Sportage models.  Where your extra money buys more features is in the Sportage Platinum model; here a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), a Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist system (BSD with LCA), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) are standard items.

On the road, the 2016 Kia Sportage Petrol SUV has even better control and a quiet, comfortable ride.  Petrol engines available for the South Korean-made SUV include: 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre power plants.  A frugal yet powerful 114 kW 2.0 Litre petrol engine is featured on Si and SLi models.  Kia’s latest 135 kW 2.4 Litre direct-injection (GDI) engine is featured on the Platinum all-wheel drive models.  Having the added AWD capability qualifies the Sportage for coping with tricky road surfaces, light off-roading duties and opening your world to adventure.

Seven vivid and bright exterior colours can cover the SUV’s bodywork.  Standard roof rails are handy for carrying extra equipment like skis, and the new Kia Sportage has good pricing and a lengthy seven year warranty.  The future continues to blossom for Kia.
