Editorial Review of Kia Sportage
The SUV market in India is booming and new entrants are expected. To compete with the likes of the Skoda Yeti, Mahindra XUV 500, the Kia Sportage could be the perfect choice for India.
The new Kia Sportage has the 'tiger' face and has the signature grille design that is present in all new Kia models.
The front has got big fog lamps and the sharp headlights really give it some presence. The big alloys and good ground clearance add further muscle. The rear though reminds you that it is a crossover but it is well styled.
Inside you will see a sweeping dashboard and a simple but practical cabin. We sure like the orange detailing done on the inside though there are other interior options there. When it comes to features you get a CD player with MP3, USB and iPod connectivity. There is also a 7.0-inch screen plus Bluetooth and voice recognition will be offered.
Expect the Kia Sportage to have a 2 litre diesel engine when it eventually comes to India.
