The Kia Sportage is a crossover SUV, available in 2WD and 4WD variants.
Going up against big competition such as the Ford Kuga, Skoda Yeti and the even more popular Nissan Qashqai and Range Rover Evoque, the Sportage seems to be holding its own.
With the UK market falling in love with this vehicle sector, the Kia Sportage has had a heavier presence on our roads in recent years - particularly with the harsher winters.
Although not a perfect 4x4, the Sportage is a great soft roader and is popular with families for a reason - plenty of practicality, versatility and style.
