2016 Kia Sportage Review

the All-new Fourth Generation Kia Sportage Has Finally Landed On Local Soil There's A Choice Of Three Trim Levels Three Engines To Drive Lines And Seven Colors Kia Say It's Smoother Smarter Safer And Sportier Than The Previous Generation Let's Go Take A Closer Look The Previous Model Was A Big Success For Care In Australia And In Fact Has Been One Of Its Most Successful Models Worldwide The New Car Seeks To Build On This And Further Lift Kia Into The Consideration Of Buyers It's A Pretty Sleek Looking Thing Around Four And A Half Meters Long The 2016 Sportage Is 40 Millimeters Longer Than The Previous Generation Car Now Up Front You've Got Kia's Trademark Tiger Nose Grille Flanked By These Cool. IceCube Fog Lamps The Curved Fenders And The High Mounted Headlights Give It A Really Sporty And Aggressive Look Almost Porsche Kinda The Profile And Fixie Pillar A Definite Evolutions Of The Previous Generation Car Moving Around To The Back With The Slimline LED Tail Lights And Overall It's A Pretty Smart Stylish Medium Sized SUV Well Up Here The Interior Will Feel Quite Familiar, If You've Ever Met The Sportage Is Big Brother The Sorento There's A Nice Mix Of Materials And Will The Layout Is Quite Good The Seats Are Comfortable And Supportive And There's Reach And Rake Adjustment On The Steering Wheel It Is All Black Everywhere Though And There Is Quite A Lot Going On With, Buttons Here Here Here And Here, But Lots Of, Buttons Means Lots Of Features And This Top Spec Platinum Model Has Plenty Of Goodies Automatic Parking Heated And Ventilated Seats And A Full-length Panoramic Sunroof Are All Standard The Eight-inch Color Touchscreen Has Navigation And All Your Phone Connectivity As Well As Support For Apple Carplay And Android Auto A First For Kia Plus For Something Really Cool This Is A Conductive Charge Pad, If Your Phone Is Compatible Just Resting It There Will Charge It No More Messy Cables Well Back Here Is Where You Can Really Feel The Extra Length In The Car There's 30 Millimeters Extra In The Wheelbase Now.

I'm 6 Foot 3 And Although My Head And Hair Is Rubbing On The Side Of The Sunroof Channel. I've Got Lots Of Knee And Toe Room. I'm Generally Quite Comfortable The Seats Recline As Well For Young Families There's Plenty Of Room For A Car Seat Between.

ISOFIX Points Vents Even A Dedicated USB Point As Well As Bottle Holders In The Doors Now All That Extra Legroom Doesn't Compromise Luggage Space There's Over 500 Litres Back Here And As You Can See A Power Tailgate Now Australian Cars Get A Full-size Spare Tire And 60/40 Split Seats Although You Can't Release Them From Here Let's Go For A Drive Empowering The New Sportage Ranger A Choice Of Three Engines Two Petrol And One Diesel This Is The Larger Of The Petrol Options A 2.4 Litre Direct Injection Four-cylinder With 135 Kilowatts And 237 Newton Meters That's A Little Sluggish Off The Line, But Once You Get Going To Point Fours Alright A Little Bit First In Than What Kia Claimed Though They've Said Eight Point Five We're Seeing Possibly Almost Double That, But To Be Fair This Little Guys Might Still Smells Brand New It's Done Less Than 800 Kilometers. So, It Might Not Be Running You All Models Of The Sportage Get A Six-speed Automatic Transmission Which On Our Platinum Has Paddle Shifters, If You Want A Self Change On The Go The Whole Experience Is Pretty Smooth A Little Bit Of A Response Whole Lowdown And Certainly, If You Do Need To Overtake Something There Is A Bit Of A Delay In Dropping Down A Cog, But Generally It's Okay There Are Even Three Drive Modes Normal Sport And Eco, If That's Your Thing Now Safety Is A Big Consideration For A Particular A Lot Of Family Buyers And The New Sportage Received A Five-star Crash Rating In Europe This Platinum Model Also Comes With A Blind Spot Detection System Lane Departure Warning And Autonomous Emergency Braking System. So, It's Quite Well Equipped For A Car In This Category Now The Ride Of The Sportage Is Actually Pretty Soft It's Not As Safe Firm As A Cx-5 And Just Hitting A Speed Hump Then Rides Over It Quite Well There's No Crashing Or Or Upset Nature To The Suspension May Not Be As Direct Or Firm As Some Of Its Competitors, But It's Certainly Not A Handful To Drive Around And Is Quite Easy To Maneuver Even On Some Tighter Streets, If Being An SUV You Do Sit Up Quite High Here In The Sportage And The Vision Out Of It Is Actually Really Good Despite That Massive C Pillar That We Looked At Earlier You've Got Really Clear Vision Out The Back And Sitting At The Front.

I Can See The Extremities Of The Car Very Easily Now While We've Only Had A Quick Look At The 2016 Kia Sportage We've Kind Of Liked It And Have To Say It Looks A Lot Better In The Middle Than It Did In The Spy Photos Leading Up To The Launch In Summary The 2016 Sportage Is A Good-looking Good Sized Well Packaged Well Equipped Little SUV And Of Course Is Backed By Kia's Seven-year Warranty And It's Something We're Sure We'll Be Seeing A Lot More Of On The Road Well We're Looking Forward To Spending More Time With The New Sportage And Can't Wait To See How It Stacks Up Against Its Competitors.
