Kia has announced a number of updates to the all-new Sportage model, which went on sale in February.

Two new models – the GT-line S and the KX-5 – have been added to the line up. The GT-line S builds on the existing GT-line model.  Available with either the 2.0-litre CRDi engine paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, or a 1.6-litre T-GDi with 7-speed auto DCT, the GT-line S adds headed steering wheel, headlamp washers, bi-xenon headlamps, and smart part assist. The KX-5 replaces the First Edition as the top-of-the-range model. Powered by a 2.0-litre CRDi engine with 6-speed automatic gearbox, the KX-5 features a two-tone leather upholstery, electronic parking brake, and wireless phone charging.  Pricing for the new models will be confirmed shortly.

A new 1.7-litre CRDi engine with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission has been added to the range on ‘2’ and ‘3’ grade models, bringing improved fuel economy and emissions.  New technology has been added to the Sportage for the 2017 model year in the form of an upgraded multimedia system, while new paint options see Standard colours available at no additional cost.
