KIA Sportage Review 2024

The Kia Sportage, which was initially unveiled in 1993 as an urban SUV concept, is currently among the best-selling SUVs in the world. The SUV has sold a staggering 5 million copies to far, which demonstrates its incredible success. The popular item was also given the 2016 iF Product Design Award.

The KIA is once again prepared with a new Sportage 2023 that features an alluring design and stunning appearance. There will be many improvements to the Compact SUV, including a redesign and other things.

Depending on the model you choose, the KIA Sportage 2023 Price in UAE ranges from AED 95,459.97 TO AED 135,127.83. The 2023 Kia Sportage has a great luggage area, a modern and beautifully designed interior, and a smooth ride and handling. Unfortunately, because many standard technological and safety features are only offered in higher trims, it performs poorly in terms of engine performance.

KIA Sportage Interior & Features

The KIA Sportage's interior turns out to be more appealing than its looks may have you believe. Everything about the location feels so organised and well-planned. A 4.2-inch TFT LCD colour screen and two analogue dials, the speedometer and tacho, are located directly behind the steering wheel. On either side of the 5-inch LCD touchscreen display are buttons and knobs in addition to the centre AC vents. The audio system and calling feature are controlled by numerous buttons on the three-spoke steering.

An automatic defogger for the front windscreen is useful both in the cold and in excessively hot weather. The panoramic sunroof is larger than typical and reaches all the way back to the last row of seats. The seats are covered in high-quality fabric and are fairly comfy. There is enough room for shoulders and legs for a comfortable ride. Also, even though the cargo capacity is spacious due to the expanded length, the foldable rear seats greatly increase the trunk space.

Sportage Exterior

The KIA Sportage's new model is athletic and cutting-edge. A new urban SUV can be referred to as it due to the type of design it has, which is in keeping with its name. The front profile is enhanced with a distinctive mesh grille and stylish headlights that are swept back. Furthermore, LED DRLs for Xenon headlights are available.

To help the wind flow more smoothly, every angle and edge of the crossover has been designed to be aerodynamic, including the lower bumper where the clusters beneath the fog lamps are hollow. A thin black band that extends to the car's bottom skirt is added to the wheel arches. LED units are mounted on the rear split tail light clusters, which extend nearly to the C-pillar. Moreover, a dual tone exhaust with chrome-accented tips is present to add a sportier touch.

A narrow chrome band surrounds the window line, while sporty roof rails and a shark fin antenna further the appearance of sportiness. Well, it is built to handle rough roads as well, as shown by the skid plates on both ends. Customers have a choice between the entry-level 17-inch alloy wheels and the top-of-the-line 18-inch or 19-inch alloy wheels.

KIA Sportage Engine & Fuel Consumption

When it comes to performance, the KIA Sportage is a strong SUV. Its muscular look is matched by an equally thunderous engine beneath the hood.

There are three different engine trims available for the little SUV. The smaller engine is a Nu 2.0-liter D-CVVT petrol engine that can produce a maximum of 152 horsepower and a maximum torque of 192 Nm. The R 2.0 VGT diesel engine, on the other hand, is more potent, generating 182 horsepower and 383 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The largest engine is a 2.4-litre gasoline unit with a massive output of 175 horsepower and a maximum torque of 226 Nm at 4000 rpm.

When it comes to delivering performance on the road, the KIA Sportage is a dependable car. It now has far better aerodynamics, which contributes to higher performance and fuel efficiency.

Sportage Braking & Safety

The KIA Sportage ranks quite highly in terms of safety features. Cutting-edge technology are employed to improve driving stability. The Advanced Traction Cornering Control (ATCC) feature, which first, analyses the road bends and makes cornering pleasurable and smooth. And guess what? The time when the handbrake lever took up a significant amount of space up front is long gone. Parking brakes are engaged by a little switch on the Sportage that is located close to the gear knob.

The Normal, Eco, and Sport drive modes are available to make things simple for the driver. But it's not the only thing. The sensors provided on the sides and back keep track of any cars that are getting close to yours. Visual alarms are sent through the ORVMs in certain situations. The Automatic Cruise Control is configured to maintain a constant speed for the duration of the trip. The driver only needs to depress the brakes or accelerator to disengage this configuration.

KIA Sportage Verdict

The Kia Sportage has a commendable design that nevertheless manages to look futuristic and upscale, and its high-raised SUV posture makes it even better. The inside cabin as a whole, while scoring highly for fit and finish, cannot be regarded to be equally as modern as the exterior due to the absence of a few essential modern elements. The diesel engine feels polished and powerful aside from that. The best of both worlds is available thanks to the premium crossover's on-road characteristics, which fall between those of a sedan and an SUV.
