The fourth-generation Kia Sportage is a compact crossover that competes with the likes of Hyundai Tuscon, Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail, and Subaru XV. Naza Kia Malaysia, the official distributor of Kia vehicles here offers this model in two variants - 2.0 2WD EX and diesel-powered GT AWD.
Powering the new Kia Sportage line-up is the carmaker's naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre Nu MPI four-cylinder petrol engine that is carried over from its predecessor. It develops 155 PS at 6,200rpm and 192 Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Power is put to the ground via a conventional six-speed automatic transmission. As the variant names suggest, the Kia Sportage is only available in 2WD format here in Malaysia. The recently introduced petrol EX is priced from RM 129,888
There is also a diesel option with AWD traction, called the Sportage CRDi GT Line priced from RM153,888. The Sportage GT Diesel is powered by a powerful 2.0-litre CRDi turbo diesel engine which kicks out 185 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Paired with the engine is a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The Sportage is locally-assembled at Naza Kia's plant in Gurun, Kedah. All new KIA models come with a factory-backed 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage.
