Since its inception in 1993, the Kia Sportage has consistently moved up the ranks to become one of the most beloved family SUVs in the UK market. It all started with the third-generation model that was released in 2010, offering fresh new looks accompanied by feature-packed interiors. Since then, the Sportage has set itself up as a crossover to be reckoned with, performing well against its closest rivals the Peugeot 3008 and the SEAT Ateca. With a broad range of engines and trims, this Kia is all set to woo family car-owners who want long-term reliability.

What we think about the Kia Sportage
Spacious interiors with lots of standard equipment packaged in a good-looking body are what makes the Kia Sportage a promising family car.
Excellent value for money
Scores low on driver engagement
Smaller boot space compared to rivals
The 2010 release of the Sportage has accounted for a major chunk of Kia’s sales in the UK. While the five-door hatchback is the only body style, you can pick up the car in both rear-wheel and four-wheel variants. All generations are available in manual and automatic variants. While the engine choice is limited to three options, six trim levels make it easy to find a good balance between price and performance.
