Sportage named value for money champ


Kia's compact SUV wins British magazine's value for money award for third year in a row.

British magazine, Planet 4x4, has rated the Kia Sportage as the Value for Money Champion for the third year running.

Kia builds European market Sportages in Slovakia and gives them upgraded suspension, beefier brakes, and interior changes to meet European buyers’ tastes.

Planet 4x4 editor, Alan Kidd, says that in an ever-changing 4WD market, the Sportage has been a constant, winning the magazine’s Best Value trophy every time.

“Each year our testers are startled afresh by what a practical, well-built, well-equipped and good-to-drive package it delivers, at a price that makes most other manufacturers look greedy.

“Right now, value for money matters more to people than ever before, which makes the Sportage's new seven-year warranty look like the most significant development of the lot.”
