The new Kia Sportage offers style and substance for families, with a new bodyshell, new engines and fresh bold styling that introduces a new kind of dynamic aesthetics.
This new model is longer wider and lower than the previous model but retains the key SUV features that made the second generation Kia Sportage so popular.
Hyoung-Keun Lee president of Kia Motors Corporation said "with the all new Kia Sportage we have created a five seat compact SUV with maximized customer appeal. It is urban friendly and fully in tune with changing customer expectations and demands, despite the recent and ongoing global economic difficulties. Customers response to the new Sportage in Europe has been entirely positive and we are confident that our latest model will significantly increase Kia's share of the compact SUV market."
Over the last six years the Kia Sportage has attracted thousands of customers and achieved global sales of more than 860,000 units including 150,000 units in Western Europe.
