The Korean auto giant KIA talked about the sales of the KIA Sportage, designed for the Chinese car market. In the period from January to the end of September, more than 64 thousand of such cars were sold on the Celestial market. Such an indicator is the best in the entire history of the model. The budget version of the KIA Sportage was built on the Sportage platform of the previous generation – in Russia such a car was sold between 2010 and 2015. Two engines are available for customers to choose from – a 2-liter aspirated engine with a return of 161 hp and a 1.4-liter turbo engine with 140 hp Paired with a naturally-aspirated engine, automatic transmission and manual transmission are operated in 6 stages, and a 7-speed robotic gearbox is equipped with a turbo engine.

 Drive – front or plug-in full, depending on the selected configuration.

 This modification of the KIA Sportage in China is sold at a price of 108.9 thousand yuan. Along with the budget version, an all-terrain performance is also sold, however, due to the higher price, the demand for such a car is much lower. A month ago, KIA introduced the updated KIA Sportage. In more advanced versions, among others, customers will have access to a two-tone body color and an improved multimedia system with artificial intelligence.
