South Korea is one of most technologically-developed nations in the world and is home to Kia, the globally-recognised vehicle designer and manufacturer. Kia have produced many models of car, such as the Rio, and continue to bring new generations of their best-selling model, the Sportage, to market.
The Kia Sportage, a compact SUV, is now in its 4th generation, examples of which were unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September of 2015. The revamped, resigned Sportage hit the market soon after, in 2016, quickly overtaking the Kia Rio as the company's best selling model globally.
With super-smooth surfaces and contrasting yet complementary sharp edges, the design of the latest generation of the Sportage was inspired by modern fighter jets. There are three petrol engines (1.6 litre, 2 litre and 2.4 litre) and one diesel engine (2 litre) in the Sportage lineup.
The Kia Sportage was a new entry to the Autocar list of the top 10 bestselling cars in the UK (at position 8) and is seen as a strong rival of the Nissan Qashqai (at position 6). This means it is the second-bestselling SUV on the market and sales continue to be buoyant after two years of being on garage forecourts.
Several awards and recognitions have been given to the Sportage, notably the "top safety pick" in 2017 from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Red Dot Award for Car Design in 2016.
