The Sportage is Kia’s global and European best-selling model and here it represents a quarter of the brand’s sales.
The updated version gets a new front-end design for sharper looks and an EcoDynamics+ power train cuts Co2 emissions by 4pc under the new, strict WLTP rules, helped by the addition of Stop&Go.
Cleanest ever from Kia
The 1.6L diesel is the cleanest ever from Kia and produces 115 or 136bhp through a six-speed manual transmission. The more powerful version is available with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed double clutch automatic transmission.
