Buy used Kia Sportage cars from trusted dealers
The Kia Sportage is an SUV that is now in its fourth generation, having first appeared way back in 1993. It must be said that the Sportage has certainly evolved a great deal since the first generation and has lost its original, squarer profile completely with the latest generation featuring contrasting sharp edges and smooth surfaces that the South Korean manufacturer claims were inspired by modern fighter jets.
The fourth generation of the Sportage became available to buy in 2016 and went on to win the Red Dot Award for Car Design that same year. 2016 also saw the Sportage become Kia's best-selling model worldwide, selling over 500,000 vehicles, overtaking the Rio in the process. As a result of this increased popularity since 2016, there are a good number of used vehicles now on the market and finding a good second hand Kia Sportage is therefore not generally too difficult.
The fourth, and latest, generation Kia Sportage range includes a choice of a 1.6 litre petrol engine version, both with and without turbo, along with two diesel engine versions. It is also available with either front or four-wheel drive and as a manual or automatic transmission.
