1. So much equipment as standard

Even from the Sportage ‘1’, you’ll receive top-level equipment like a 7" colour touchscreen audio display, reversing camera system, front fog lights, Bluetooth with music streaming, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice control.

2. Mild hybrid available

The top-of-the-range 2.0-litre diesel version is available in a 48v mild hybrid configuration, meaning your all-wheel drive and 182bhp, is now even cleaner and more efficient. The 0.44 kWh lithium-ion battery recharges itself whenever you brake or you let the car cruise or coast down a hill, meaning it never needs to be charged externally. When accelerating or going uphill, the system provides torque assistance to the engine.

3. Going sporty in your SUV

The 2018 Kia Sportage offers six trim levels, including the GT-Line and the GT-Line S. Both these sporty-looking models offer enhancements like 19” alloys, a dark chrome front grille surround, high gloss black 'blade' mesh radiator grille, a dark chrome front bumper insert, and black wheel arch body mouldings and side sills with a dark chrome insert. Inside, there’s black leather upholstery with red piping and stitching, a D-shaped sports leather steering wheel with perforated inserts, and a black headlining. Choose the GT-Line S for its eight-speaker JBL premium sound system, 8" touchscreen satellite navigation and wireless mobile phone charger.

4.Lugging your luggage

When you go and you want to take everything with you, it’s good to know that the Sportage comes with a generous luggage compartment. It’s also easy to use, thanks to the 60/40 split folding rear seats, the almost flat floor once you fold the seats and the array of equipment for the luggage compartment, like the load cover, net hooks and lighting. Choose the GT-Line S and you’ll also have the benefit of a smart power tailgate, whilst from the ‘2’ Grade, you’ll have roof rails up top to add whatever additional load carrying options you want.

5.It’s built to make your every adventure more enjoyable

Smooth, comfortable and effortless, that’s the new Kia Sportage. The high-end finishes and soft-touch materials let you feel the luxury. And if you’re driving, you’ll find that the cockpit is designed to fit you perfectly with all the controls angled your way, so they’re easy to use, whilst all the displays are easy to see. Kia calls it ergonomic; you’ll call it a joy to drive.
