The Kia Sportage is the perfect vehicle for a family road trip. The completely redesigned interior features offer superior comfort, convenience, connectivity and safety. The all-new interior represents one of the most significant improvements in the latest Kia, with a strong focus on creating a wider cabin and more leg room for the driver, which means improved comfort – a must for any family road trip.
For a long road trip, when the kids are fast asleep in the back seat, drivers will appreciate the smooth, quiet ride offered by the Sportage. This has been achieved with all-round improvement to body stiffness, as well as the introduction of larger, more absorbent mounts for the transmission, and improved seat design. Stiffer alloy wheels also reduce the level of vibration intruding on the interior.
Building on Kia’s reputation for high safety standard, the Kia Sportage has been engineered to meet the toughest and most demanding crash safety tests, thanks to a strong bodyshell, a wide array of passive safety equipment and the latest active safety technologies. A total of six airbags are standard, with airbags for driver and front passenger, first row side airbags, and first and second row curtain airbags.
This SUV is loaded with features that will make any road trip epic – including a 62 litre tank (less stops for fuel!) and a wireless phone charger. It’s the perfect way to take you and your friends to wherever the open road takes you.
