New Kia Sportage Attracts 1,500 UK Buyers In First Weekend On Sale

Kia announced that its new SUV is already proving to be a hit in the United Kingdom.

With 1,500 customers putting down deposits in the first three days on sale, the fourth generation of the Sportage looks set to repeat its predecessor’s commercial success.

Not quite a surprise, as it has a sharper design, better quality, a range of engines that suit European customers’ needs and modern features like Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

“The all-new Sportage is a significant step forward for Kia, both in terms of interior quality and dynamic refinement and sophistication – and clearly both existing and new customers recognise that fact”, Paul Philpott, President and Chief Executive of Kia UK commented. “Our dealers currently have only one worry – can we satisfy the demand? Well, both Kia in the UK and our factory in Slovakia are working flat-out to ensure we can.”

Offered in 18 different trim versions, the new Kia Sportage is priced from £17,995 to £31,645.
