The Kia Sportage is a compact crossover SUV that offers a lot of value for the money to its owner. The first generation of this vehicle came back in 1993 as a rear-wheel drive vehicle. It was a jeep-like vehicle, which faced stiff competition from various cars in the same category and was discontinued in 2002. The second generation Kia Sportage was launched in the year 2004.
The 2004 series of the Kia Sportage was a crossover SUV, but it had lost its off-road maneuverability. Many changes were introduced in this car, most notably, the introduction of the V-6 engine to improve its powertrain. In 2008, a completely new version of the Sportage was launched with a significant facelift.
The features of this and the launch of the third version in 2011 meant that buyers got excellent value for their money. The 2011 and later models offer excellent mileage with a 2.4 liter, V-6 engine for its powertrain. Many people don’t particularly care for the usual styling of Kia cars, but to them, the Sportage is a great option as it has an elegant, curvaceous frame; much like the Hyundai Tucson.
