With the rapid increase in popularity of the crossover segment in the Philippines, the Kia Sportage is one of those who remained competitive. It's the smaller brother of the Sorento but it's totally big when it comes to flexibility, features, and design.
The all-new 4th generation Sportage carries the signature tiger grille and the new black roof that separates it from the competition. The intricately designed fog lamps plus the new edgy head and tail lamps give this sporty crossover a fierce look; redirecting your attention towards the sleek character lines on its side which flows from the front to the back.
The insides of the all-new Sportage is wrapped and designed with high-grade materials. The cabin layout is also driver-oriented, with panels and switches that are strategically placed to improve the convenience of the one who's behind the wheel.
The all-new Kia Sportage is powered by a R 2.0L in-line 4 e-VGT CRDi DOHC diesel engine that improves emissions, fuel efficiency, NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), and response. When it comes to safety, it will not shy away from its competitors with features such as Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Park Assist System, Auto Cruise Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Drive Mode Select, and the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). AEB uses radar detection to prevent potential collision to a another car or a pedestrian.
