Kia expands Sportage Range

Date Posted: August 28, 2017

The evolution of Kia has been truly magnificent to watch. The design, quality and all-round brilliance of each of the South Korean automaker’s vehicles get better with each generation. It is this brilliance that allows Kia to produce more vehicles and offer more variants to South Africans, who seem to be loving Kia cars more and more.

One Kia model that has recently received a number of impressive additions to its line-up is the Kia Sportage. The current generation of Kia’s stunning SUV was launched in SA in October 2016, with five variants on offer.

The next phase of the Sportage’s life cycle sees an expanded line-up featuring seven new variants. The new additions have been dubbed the Plus models, and also manage to fill a R120 000 gap between the Sportage 2.0 Ignite manual and Sportage 2.0 diesel EX automatic.
