Kia Sportage Review 2018 

There are these conservative SUVs, like a VW Tiguan or a Seat Ateca, who want to convince with beefy appearance – but do not overdo it. And there are those bluntly playful, like the Nissan Juke, which, especially in the B segment, has completely removed from the terrain optics. To the latter belongs the new generation Kia Sportage. In addition to the new design, the Koreans now also offer more space and various technical updates – from the Sportage has become a modern compact SUV, as a two-week test in the editorial of mine-auto-blog showed.

Stramber Max

If the predecessor models were rather staid, then the current Sportage has become a tough guy. From the front, the Hochbeiner now looks more expressive, on the one hand by the shaped in the style of the brand grille, on the other hand, that the slightly pulled backward lights are now positioned higher up and the hood is more contoured. Overall, the Sportage is more modeled and looks more dynamic and less rounded. With the design, he wants to distinguish not only from his more conservative-drawn group brother Hyundai Tucson but especially from the segment-Primus VW Tiguan.

The 2.0-liter diesel mounted in the test car (starting at 29,190 euros in the third trim level “Vision”) takes on a lively vibe. Its 136 hp and 373 Nm of torque are absolutely sufficient in everyday life, too much temperament you should not expect from the diesel, however. He also runs out of steam at higher speeds (Vmax: 186 km / h). 4.9 liters should consume the diesel, in the test he took a little over six liters. To save fuel has certainly contributed that the Sportage was driven only on the front wheels. All-wheel is offered only in combination with the more powerful engines and is exclusive to the most powerful diesel series.

Gentle companion

The combination of the cozy diesel, the long shift travel of the 6-speed manual transmission and the rather comfortable chassis tuning do not quite fit the sporty look – here is the Sportage just quite SUV. The Korean is a car for longer trips. Among other things, the well-functioning Lane Keeping Assist contributes to this. He does not catch the vehicle with a hectic steering intervention just before it threatens to drive over the line but keeps the Sportage usually right in the middle of the track. Even highway turns passes through the SUV sovereign, while the driver has his hand loosely on the steering wheel. In addition, the Koreans can be equipped with another current (also surcharge) assistance systems, for example, cross traffic warnings, traffic sign recognition,

To complete the chapter assistance systems perfectly, the Sportage is missing an attractive helper: The adaptive cruise control, which keeps the distance to the front man in addition to the speed. From the second equipment level, although a simple cruise control series, the complex, not only for a frequent travelers very practical adaptive system is not available.

Also, the many buttons on the optional multifunction steering wheel and in the center console do not seem quite as thoughtfully distributed, as one would expect in the otherwise positive impression. In addition, the Sportage allowed in the interior no fags: Sachlich-simple decor with a few silvery details, easy to read, analog instruments, comfortable seats and plenty of room in the second row. This is attributable to the increase in length from four centimeters to 4.48 meters, which means that the trunk volume has grown to 503 liters (maximum 1,492 liters).

Even the basic version “Attract” is decently equipped. Who ordered the lock price of 19,990 euros – Kia has lowered the price by about 600 euros below the 20,000 mark – ordered, drives in terms of equipment no waiver model. However, only the 1.6-liter entry-level petrol engine with 97 kW / 132 hp and front-wheel drive is available in this configuration. Air conditioning, radio, 16-inch alloy wheels and power windows and mirrors are always on board. The standard in height and width adjustable leather steering wheel helps to find a really comfortable driving position together with the also always height adjustable driver’s seat. Also practical: Divided rear seat and tilt-adjustable rear seat back you do not have to book extra. Disadvantage: Optionally, no extra wishes are available at all,

The “Spirit” version, which in combination with the entry-level engine costs around 9,000 euros more than the base model, is fully equipped. The average diesel engine tested in the test is only available in the medium version “Vision” and the higher option “Spirit”. A good compromise between comfort and calculation offers “Vision”, which is 29,000 euros cheaper 4,000 euros cheaper than the next higher equipment line, but still has important extras on board: heated seats front and rear, handsfree, sat nav with 7-inch monitor, Multifunction steering wheel, cruise control and rear view camera. In addition, some assistance systems series such as high beam assistant, traffic sign recognition or the above-mentioned very comfortable working lane departure warning with steering intervention.

Conclusion:

The Kia Sportage may look a bit strange, but he does a lot of things right. With his modern approach, he is a serious candidate for well-established best sellers in the competitive environment – although there is still room for improvement. And even in resale, the forecast is positive: the market observers from Bähr & Fess forecast the tested diesel SUV in three years, a residual value of 58.5 percent, more than, for example, a comparable Nissan Qashqai ..
