With spectacular demand in showrooms for the just launched Sportage First Edition 2.0 CRDi AWD, the full-range is going on sale 1st November this year. The 16 models consist of three trim grades – badged 1, 2 and 3 in line with the rest of the Kia range, with all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions at the mid and high grade level given the familiar KX preface.
The line-up includes four engines, including the brand new highly efficient, start of the range 1.6 litre direct-injection petrol unit with an OTR price of £16,645 and 1.7 litre turbodiesel unit starting at £18,145 OTR. Following the usual trim levels, ‘2’ starts at £20,020 OTR and ‘3’ starts at £21,595 OTR.
2.0 litre AWD models start at an OTR price of £20,800 with a top of the range 2.0 CRDi KX-3 Sat Nav AWD Automatic with an OTR price of £26,170. Flagship models are available with a fully integrated satellite navigation system, featuring a 7” full-map colour touchscreen integrated seamlessly into the central dash console providing access to a large selection of UK and European maps and Points-of-Interest.
Metallic or mica paint is an optional £435 including VAT and all models are exceptionally well-equipped, as customers have come to expect. As with every new Kia, an industry pioneering seven year warranty comes as standard.
