Kia Sportage: Our Fleet Test Drive - 2nd Report

Date: 10 March 2011   |   Author: Tony Rock

Category: Small 4x4
P11D price: £20,300
Key rival: Nissan Qashqai

I drove an entry-level petrol Sportage just before our diesel model arrived.

Maybe it's down to a desire for life-enhancing features brought on by advancing years, but my first reaction was to turn my nose up sniffily at the lack of an auto-headlight setting, an indication, I felt, of a lack of spec. It turns out the base model has plenty of standard kit (see previous report), while any snobby misgivings I had have been alleviated by the '2' spec's privacy glass, reversing sensors and panoramic sunroof - although there still isn't an auto-headlight setting.
