Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage is emerging as one of Australia’s most popular mid-size SUVs, with a reputation for driveability, refined engines and smartphone connectivity.

First sold in Australia in the late-‘90s, the Sportage has evolved plenty since those early days. Now in its third generation, the Sportage is spritely, competent, and a compelling option for buyers wanting an affordable mid-size SUV.

Prices for the Sportage start just below $30,000, and there are ten variants to choose from, with both petrol and diesel engines, front- and four-wheel drive systems, and manual and automatic gearboxes.

The Sportage is sold in a highly competitive segment along with cars like the Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape and Nissan X-Trail.

Does the Kia Sportage have third row seating?

Unfortunately, the Kia Sportage does not have third-row seats. You’ll need to opt for the larger Sorento if you want a Kia SUV with three rows of seating.

Does the 2020 Kia Sportage have a CD player?

In a sign of the times, the 2020 Kia Sportage does not come with a CD player. However, you do get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, allowing you to use streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music through the Sportage’s infotainment screen.

How much is a Kia Sportage?

The Sportage range starts at below $30,000, and extends to almost $50,000. The cheapest variant is the S with a manual transmission, costing $28,690 before on-roads. The flagship GT-Line with an automatic transmission and diesel engine will cost $48,190 before factoring on-roads.

How to put Kia Sportage in four-wheel drive?

The Sportage’s four-wheel drive system is on-demand when driving in standard conditions. However, you can activate it on a permanent basis using the 4WD LOCK button, which does as it says and locks the four-wheel-drive system on.
