Kia's all-new Sportage crossover is now available with a 161bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine from £19,495

The petrol-powered Kia Sportage First Edition does an average of 35.8mpg and emits 188g/km of CO2. It has a top speed of 113mph and a 0-60mph time of 10.3 seconds.

As with the recently launched 2.0 CRDI Kia Sportage, the four-wheel-drive petrol version is available in just one well-equipped trim that includes:

• leather upholstery
• dual-zone climate control
• 18-inch alloy wheels
• LED daytime running lights
• Bluetooth
• cruise control
• rain-sensing wipers
• a colour rear parking camera system integrated into the rear-view mirror

Initially, 850 diesel Sportage First Editions were made for the UK, however Kia says these have all now been sold.

The full line-up, with two- and four-wheel-drive versions and lower-powered engines, will be available later this year, but Kia says it made the petrol First Editions available now to meet customer demand.

The petrol First Edition costs £1282 less than the diesel and is available to order now, with deliveries starting in October.
