New Kia Sportage on sale in October


Kia's new Sportage model arrives with 1.7-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines.

Kia's new Sportage is coming to Ireland in October. The new car, which we are test driving this week in Budapest, will be available with two diesel power units: a 115hp 1.7-litre and a 136hp 2.0-litre. 

The 1.7-litre will be available with two-wheel drive only, while the 2.0-litre comes with both two- and four-wheel drive. The 1.7-litre falls into Band B with road tax of €156, while the 2.0-litre in both guises falls into Band C. 

Kia Ireland will launch with the 2.0-litre diesel in October with the 1.7-litre diesel following in time for the January 2011 market. Local specs and pricing will be announced closer to launch date.
