KIA Sportage​ Overview

The demand for SUVs in India has increased in the past few years, mainly with the introduction of compact SUVs in the market. There are many automakers who are trying to capitalize on the demand by introducing new SUVs and expanding their production capabilities. One of the world’s popular mid-size SUV, the Kia Sportage, is also preparing to eat a slice of this big pie.

KIA Sportage​ Exterior

The Kia Sportage exterior will get a very confident stance and will look well proportioned from all angles. The front grille will be treated in high gloss black material, which will lend appeal to the styling. The major attractions at the exterior of the car will include features like Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, electrically-foldable ORVMs with integrated turn indicators, body-coloured outside door handles, roof rails, stylish alloy wheels, etc. The body cladding will run across the length of the car and will give it a butch feel. The rear end will boast of a roof-mounted spoiler and beautiful tail lamp assembly, which will intrude nicely into the boot lid. This SUV is expected to come with a wheelbase of 2,670 mm, and measure 4,480 mm in length, 1855 mm in width and 1,635 mm in height.

KIA Sportage​ Interior

The Kia Sportage interiors will be spacious and stylish with enough leg space, generous head space and excellent visibility. The seats will be extremely comfortable for long journeys and the driver might get electrically-adjustable seats with lumbar support. The dashboard will boast of great quality all over with excellent fit and finish. The boot will be decently sized and the rear seats would be flipped forward in 60:40 split format, aiding in practicality. The stylish instrument cluster may provide notifications of door ajar, fuel consumption, driver seat belt reminder, average speed and a few others.
Some of the expected key Kia Sportage features include tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment, panoramic sunroof, automatic headlight, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshift, automatic climate control, multifunctional steering wheel, cruise control, adjustable driver seat, engine start/stop button with smart entry system, 8-speaker JBL premium sound system, touchscreen satellite navigation, Android auto and Apple CarPlay, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera system, etc., to name a few.

KIA Sportage​ Engine & Transmission

The Kia Sportage specifications would come with multiple powertrain options, but we can expect it to launch with a 2.0-liter CRDI diesel engine in India first, which will give an output of 184 bhp of peak power and 392 Nm of peak torque. It is believed that the SUV would be launched with both manual and automatic transmission options in India; however, things are not clear yet.

KIA Sportage​ Mileage

The Kia Sportage mileage for the 2.0 liter CRDI diesel engine is expected to deliver a real-world mileage of 15-16 kmpl. The accurate details regarding the mileage will be revealed once it hits the market.

KIA Sportage​ Braking and Safety

Kia Sportage braking system would get a range of active and passive safety features in the Indian market that may comprise of a plethora of airbags, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Downhill Brake Control (DBC), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), ISOFIX child seat top tethers and Anchor fixings, all-round 3-point seatbelts, remote central door locking, advanced anti-theft system including immobilizer and alarm, child safety door locks, etc. All of this will contribute to the Kia Sportage’s five-star Euro NCAP rating.

KIA Sportage​ Performance and Handling

Kia Sportage will have an eager and responsive engine with barely any turbo lag and that will make it easy to drive in traffic. A slight tap on the accelerator would be required to move around at a decent pace. The transmission will offer smooth shifts and if needed would be shifted manually using the paddle shifters. Its tilt and telescopic adjustable steering is expected to be fairly light, and will respond instantly to the driver's directional inputs. The car will get an efficient braking and suspension mechanism, keeping it well balanced and stable at all times.

What do we think about KIA Sportage​?

Kia Sportage is anticipated to be unmatched in terms of style, performance, technology, safety and comfort.

KIA Sportage​ Competitors

When launched, it will compete with the well-established rivals, like Hyundai Tucson, Tata Hexa, Mahindra XUV500, Honda CR-V, etc.
