Mon, 19 Nov 2007
Kia has revealed that it has given its Sportage an overhaul for 2008 in order to make it more appealing to European drivers.

The Korean company has retuned a host of features, including power steering, in what its calls a Euro make-over.

Motorists who pick up the 2008 Sportage will receive an SUV with 16-inch brakes and a towing capability of 1,800 kg.

Drivers who opt for the new model will be pleased to learn that Kia has dropped the price, offering a two-wheel drive variation for £13,995 on the road.

"The 2008 Sportage has changed only the front bumper, grille, wing mirrors and headlights on the outside. Under the skin are a number of significant improvements to make the Sportage even more appealing to European customers," the company commented.

After Hyundai, Kia is Korea's second-largest motor manufacturer. The company was founded in 1955.ADNFCR-1081-ID-18361141-ADNFCR
