The fourth generation Kia Sportage, which benefits from major advances in fuel efficiency, comfort, connectivity, convenience and safety, will be available to purchase at Underwoods Kia from 5 February. With prices starting from £17,995, the all-new model is sure to prove as popular as its predecessors with motorists in Colchester and the surround areas.

The brand new Kia Sportage comes in 18 variants and for the first time, GT-Line versions are available - adding an even sportier flourish to the range. The luxurious First Edition model, which is priced at £31,645, heads the line-up, and GT-Line models start at £24,350.

Paul Philpott, President and CEO of Kia Motors UK, said “The third generation Sportage has sold over 90,000 units since its launch in 2010 and we hope to see the fourth generation model being as popular as this. The car has some of the most advanced technologies available in a Kia which will appeal to our customers.”

All versions of the new Kia Sportage, except the entry-level grade, include a 7 or 8-inch touch-screen satellite navigation system linked to Kia Connected Services with TomTom®, providing full European mapping and detailed traffic, speed camera, weather and local services information – handy features for motorists driving the streets of Colchester. Further up the range, Speed Limit Information, Lane Keep Assist, High Beam Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert are available.

As well as offering fantastic connectivity and innovative technology, the fourth generation Sportage benefits from a range of other features. Even grade ‘1’ models come with 16-inch alloy wheels, smart black cloth upholstery with a grey headlining, electrically adjustable door mirrors, a premium feel leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshifter and all-round electric windows. The new model is also up to 7mpg more economical, with CO2 reductions of as much as 29g/km – making it more cost efficient and environmentally friendly.

Matthew Waylett of Underwoods Kia says, ”We can’t wait to get the All-New Kia Sportage onto our forecourt and start talking to customers about the benefits of the new model. The Sportage’s fun-to-drive qualities have been honed to an even sharper degree in the new model through a combination of a much stiffer body shell, extensive suspension revisions and a new steering system, and as a result, it is even more precise and stable on the UK's twisty country roads and more comfortable and refined on highways and motorways too.”
