Review

Stick to the lower trims and the Sportage is good value for money, comes with a decent amount of rear space and a decent boot. However, we think other Family SUVs, such as the Skoda Karoq, are better options. The Sportage isn't that comfortable, has noisy engines that aren't especially fuel-efficient, and the higher-spec models are very pricey.

Trim: GT-Line

This sporty trim builds on 2 grade with 19in wheels, black leather seats with red piping, dark chrome trim outside, LED front and rear lights and a black headlining. As the changes are mostly cosmetic and the bigger wheels hurt the ride comfort, we’d save the money and stick to '2' trim.

Engine: 1.6T GDi

Adding a turbo to the 1.6-litre petrol gives you a lot more punch, the option of four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox and doesn’t hurt claimed economy too much. It doesn’t feel as strong as similarly powerful engines in rivals, proves juicy and emits and awful lot of CO2, though.
