The Sportage is a new crossover from Kia and it will be serious competition for the Nissan Qashqai. The Kia Sportage will arrive in the UK in November 2010 but there will be 800 released early in August but the main bulk will not be available until later in the year. Following on from the Kia Souls impressive looks the Sportage also impresses with its fresh radical appearance. With such details as Standard LED day time running lights, massive grille and the optional Techno Orange gives the Kia Sportage real road presence. On the inside the Kia Sportage has a solid and quality feel to it, on the inside the dashboard has a glossy black finish and the layout is ergonomically sound. The space inside the Kia Sportage is very generous indeed even though the narrow window line gives the illusion of a small interior space. The Kia Sportage has generous amount of standard spec such as Leather heated Seats front and rear, Reversing Camera and Cruise Control. The Kia Sportage comes with improved power and lower emissions from its 2.0-litre CRDi diesel engine. Also new for the Sportage is a new 4x4 wheel drive Intelligence system. For every day driving most of the Sportages power is sent to the front wheels but when needed the intelligent system diverts 40% of the power to the rear wheels in such cases as ice or snow. The Kia Sportage has been developed to suit UK Drivers and UK road conditions, with a comfortable tall driving position the driver has great visibility front and side but the rear is a bit difficult at times hence the rear view parking Camera. The Kia Sportages 2.0-litre CRDi diesel Engine provides a decent amount of power and it doesnt suffer too much from body roll when thrown into corners at speed. Overall the New Kia Sportage has taken a big step forward in looks, design and quality, also the Kia Sportage standard package will be hard to match for the price tag.
