About The Kia Sportage

When the Kia Sportage hit the streets in 1993 it was essentially a rebadged Mazda Bongo with a different appearance.

What is more evident in the 1990’s version is that this vehicle is an experiment to see what would happen if you cut the rear payload bed from a pickup truck.

If you’re an owner of the car, you will want to have your manual on hand so that you can familiarize yourself with all the features of your new SPortage.

Some buyers of pickup trucks were rarely using the large payload areas of pickup trucks (especially in North America) so a test was devised to see if this would sell.

With buyers snapping up the Kia Sportage the range was continued and has evolved through 4 major redesigns in its life retaining the cut-up pickup truck appearance.

The newest model that you can buy is assembled all around the world and was introduced into European markets in 2019.

Since 2015 the fourth generation that was delivered to customers in 2016 features a range of engines, transmissions and an option of front-wheel or four-wheel drive.

These buyers could between one of six trims that controlled the number of features inside the car, such as:

  • EX
  • Limited
  • LX
  • Nightfall
  • S
  • SX

Safety ratings for the 4th generation have been fantastic with an overall rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

If you are struggling for parts then the Hyundai Tucson shares its platform with the Sportage and was released in 2004 just as the second generation version of this car was released.
