The all-new Kia Sportage compact SUV, which made its global debut at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show, boasts a spacious interior along with advanced technologies, revised engines, improved handling and a new GT Line trim.

A range of new and updated engines and transmissions deliver enhanced efficiency and performance for both private and fleet customers.  A new 1.6-litre T-GDi is available for the first time on the Sportage and exclusively for GT Line buyers.

The new-look interior features high quality materials and design integrity, as well as greater practicality and a range of technologies to improve comfort, convenience, connectivity and safety.

The latest model comes with a choice of 16, 17 or 19-inch aluminium alloy wheel designs, with the GT Line specification available with a unique 19-inch wheel option as standard.

Priced from £17,995 the entry level Sportage ‘1’ comes with 16” alloy wheels, LED running lights, front fog lights, air conditioning, DAB radio, Bluetooth with voice recognition and Music Streaming, USB and Aux ports, cruise control and speed limiter, leather trimmed steering wheel and gearshift and all-round electric windows with driver’s auto down function.

Customers who prefer a saloon to an SUV, can take advantage of the all-new Optima model, which is loaded with class-leading technologies, such as wireless phone charging, a safety enhancing 360-degree Around View Monitor and a reversing camera.

In addition, the latest model also boasts major improvements in comfort, refinement and space with Lane Keep Assist, Speed Limit Information Function, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert technologies, which aim to help improve driver safety.

Customers can choose from three versions, including ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘4’ with the GT and GT Line versions due to be added later this year.  All versions are extensively equipped – with the entry level ‘2’ grade available with a 7.0 inch satellite navigation system, European mapping and a reversing camera as standard.

Steven added; “Previous Optima models have proven successful with customers and we are sure that this one will be just as popular.

“The all-new Optima model has been redefined, enhanced and perfected and delivers a full peace of mind and stress-free driving experience.  From its eye-catching design to its state-of-the-art features, the model sets a completely new standard in quality.”

All of Kia’s new cars come with the manufacturer’s market-leading seven year 100,000 mile warranty, as well as Kia’s Care-3 and Care-3 Plus servicing packages, offering retail and fleet customers fixed-cost, inflation proof servicing for the first three or five years.
