Kia Sportage - At a glance car review


Make: Kia

Model: Sportage


The second-generation of Kia’s big-selling crossover is vital to the recent growth of the brand. Petrol or diesel, manual or automatic and front- or four-wheel drive, the main company car engine is the 114hp 1.7 diesel, which gets below 119g/km. GT-line spec adds some further visual lifting of the styling, and the Kia Sportage leads the Korean manufacturer’s assault on the company car sector.

CCT positive:

Fairly stylish, though the design is more divisive than the first generation car, and it’s good value for money. The seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty is appealing, while boot size is decent without being class-leading.

CCT negative:

Engine refinement and handling aren’t up with the class best.

Main rivals:

Ford Kuga, Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar, Seat Ateca

Interesting alternatives:

Mazda CX-5, Suzuki Vitara

CCT says:

Appealing and good value, the Sportage illustrates how Kia is able to compete on a level playing field with the biggest volume brands in the business.
