This version of the popular crossover is sold exclusively in the Chinese car market.

The cheaper version of the KIA Sportage has become the brand’s bestseller since the beginning of the year. In the period from the beginning of January to the end of July, the brand’s dealers were able to sell 41 thousand of these cars. Unlike the modern version, the more budgetary Sportage uses the platform of the third generation car.

Moreover, in China, two versions of the KIA Sportage are sold simultaneously. It is not at all surprising that it is the inexpensive modification that is more popular because of its attractive cost – so, its most affordable version will cost 108.9 thousand yuan. The budget modification of the KIA Sportage received an update in the fall of 2019 – despite the relatively “old” platform, the car has a modern appearance.

The radiator grille is made in the style of modern KIA models. We also note the presence of fog lights integrated into the bumper, and in the rear of the car the emphasis is on the brand name and model.

The engine range of KIA Sportage consists of two power units – a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine with a capacity of 161 hp, as well as a 1.4-liter turbo engine with an output of 140 hp.

The atmospheric engine works in tandem with a 6-speed manual transmission or automatic transmission in the same number of stages, and the turbo engine is combined with a robotic gearbox.
