It’s hard to believe that Australians have been buying the Kia Sportage for nearly 20 years.
The current generation, on sale since 2010, has made the most impact on customers in terms of style, comfort and convenience. The mid-range Si Premium and the top-of-the-line Platinum have consistently been the top sellers for the Korean brand, so we got out in them both to test-drive two of the hottest entries in the compact SUV market.
Overall, the Sportage is well done – hints of flair in interior and exterior design make it one of Kia’s most attractive models.
Cornering produces no lurching body roll associated with SUVs (but you are cushioned well by the seats), and the drive in both petrol and diesel models is satisfyingly engaging.
With seating limited to 5, passengers enjoy generous legroom without the squeeze that comes from an extra row shoehorned into a compact SUV. Rear boot space fills up with 564 litres, while folding the rear seats down will net you 1,353 litres.
