Kia releases new Sportage pricing strategy
Kia has revealed that the 2011 Sportage will start from £16,645 when it is released on 1 November.
First Edition versions of the new Sportage have been in the UK since 1 August, but the Korean firm has now for the first time released full details of the engine, specification and pricing of the crossover.
Available in 1, 2, 3 and KX trim, customers have a choice of three powerplants; one petrol and two diesel. A 1.6-litre petrol – only available in trim level 1 - unit kicks off proceedings at £16,645.
The next in the range is the 1.7-litre CRDi which, priced between £18,145 and £21,596, is available in trim levels 1, 2 and 3 in two-wheel drive format only.
The range-topping engine, which comes in 2, 3 and KX trim levels, is the 2.0-litre CDTi. Prices for this version start at £20,800 and it is available only in all-wheel drive. This powertrain is therefore fitted in the flagship model, which is priced at £26,170 and comes with an automatic gearbox and a 7-inch colour touch-screen interface.
The all-new Peter Schreyer-designed Kia Sportage will go on sale from 1 November.
