KIA SPORTAGE 4x4 1.7 CRDi ISG 2 5dr

The Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2 has our favourite engine, but we'd go for the cheaper – and still well equipped – 1 version.

Engines

1.7 CRDi 139
We have yet to drive this engine, but if you are after a bit more power than the 114bhp version of the 1.7 diesel and an automatic gearbox, it might be worth a look. However, it’s more expensive and fuel costs will be higher.
2.0 CRDi 182
This range-topping diesel engine gets four-wheel drive as standard and you can choose between a six-speed manual &#39;box and a six-speed auto. It&#39;s easily the strongest engine in the range, but is too pricey to recommend – especially since it&#39;s available only in 4 trim.
2.0 CRDi 134
This engine comes with four-wheel drive as standard and with either a standard six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. It’s a strong engine and more refined than the entry-level 1.7 diesel, and with a manual ’box it’ll pull up to 2.2 tonnes.
Our pick
1.7 CRDi 114
This is our pick of the range. It’s fairly cheap to buy, the most economical in the line-up and more than gutsy enough to satisfy most drivers – although it’s quite a guttural-sounding engine. It&#39;s only available with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, though, so if you want diesel with an automatic and four-wheel drive you’ll have to go for the pricier 2.0-litre option.
1.6 GDi 130
This is the cheapest way into a Sportage – and it’s worth a look if you’re a private buyer and your mileage is low. Be aware, though, that you need to rev the engine quite hard to get the best from it and it gets noisy when you do so. Fuel economy isn’t great, either.
1.6 T-GDi 174
This turbocharged 1.6 petrol is good value going by list price, given that it undercuts the 1.7 diesel by a four-figure sum and it’s more refined, too. However, running costs will be quite high and you have to work the engine hard to get the best from it; even then, it doesn’t feel that fast. This engine is available with two or four-wheel drive, and while a six-speed manual is standard you can choose a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox if you wish.
