KIA Sportage (2005–2010)

Last updated 21 November 2018

Enjoyable drive, especially in diesel form. Plenty of kit. Rear seats recline and fold flat easily. Roomy and practical.
Not as fuel efficient as a RAV-4, CR-V or X-Trail diesel. Thick back pillars compromise rear three-quarter vision.

The first nice surprise when you step inside the a Sportage is the smell. There isn't one. Interiors of cars from South Korea used to pong like a glue factory, but thankfully the Sportage is an odour-free zone.
