Kia Sportage facelift: prices, specification and CO2 emissions

6

Kia has announced prices for the facelifted Sportage, which pairs an updated exterior and interior design with new safety and infotainment technologies, as well as efficient new powertrains.

The car’s all-new EcoDynamics+ 48v diesel mild-hybrid powertrain is the first to be launched as part of Kia’s global powertrain electrification strategy.

The line-up of petrol engines remains the same, though with minor modifications to emissions. The naturally-aspirated 131PS 1.6-litre GDi engine offers CO2 emissions from 162g/km.

A turbocharged T-GDi version delivers 176PS with a 0-60mph time of 8.9 seconds. CO2 emissions are 173g/km, with fuel economy up to 39.2mpg.

The Sportage’s existing 1.7-litre CRDi diesel engine has been replaced with Kia’s new 1.6-litre engine. It produces 115PS or 135PS, with emissions rated from 130g/km for 115PS models, and 126g/km for higher-powered models.

There is also a new 2.0-litre ‘R’ diesel mild-hybrid powertrain, which supplements acceleration with power from a compact 48-volt battery, and extends engine off time.

If the battery has sufficient charge, the combustion engine turns off automatically during in-gear deceleration and braking, to increase fuel efficiency.

Base models come as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshifter, all-round electric windows, air conditioning, DAB, Bluetooth with voice recognition, automatic light control, and reversing camera.

Grade 2 offers 17-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touch-screen sat-nav system, reversing sensors, automatic wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, dual automatic air conditioning, heated front seats and the Lane-Keep Assist System.

Grade 4 models feature an eight-inch touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, Smart Entry system, heated steering wheel, 360-degree around view monitor, premium sound system and LED bi-function headlights.

To celebrate 25 years of the Kia Sportage, a special Edition 25 grade is available from launch and paired exclusively with the 1.6 GDi engine with manual transmission. Specification is based on the grade 4.

GT-Line sits in the range between grades 2 and 4 and has sporty styling flourishes which mark it out as a more dynamic version of the Sportage.

GT-Line S features adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, Smart Power Tailgate and a wireless phone charger.
