Amongst the small medium SUVs Kia has a perennial favourite in the Sportage. Rob Fraser has been driving the latest model
Kia Sportage almost personifies the small medium SUV segment. The GT Line diesel is priced from just under $48,000 plus the usual costs and is completely full of both safety and comfort features that cars costing many thousands more often have as options.
Powered by a 2.0L diesel engine with part time AWD and an 8 speed automatic transmission, the Sportage provides a smooth and relaxed drive on the Australian tuned suspension.
It will sit five in relative comfort with enough room for luggage, if they pack light. It’s ideal for a smaller family or a couple that want something with room.
Sportage is one of those cars that you sit in and it feels comfortable right from the first drive. It does absolutely nothing wrong and with Kia’s extensive 7 year customer owner package, you can expect many years of fuss free motoring.
