Kia Sportage KX-4

New range-topping version of the Kia Sportage gets more power and lots of kit

Kia has announced the addition of a new flagship model to the Sportage range.

The Sportage KX-4 uses a new version of the 2.0-litre CRDi turbodiesel engine, which has been tuned to provide 181bhp - up from 134bhp. This means it's capable of going from 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds and has a top speed of 120mph.

It's only available with four-wheel drive, though, which means CO2 emissions increase slightly to 158g/km, while fuel economy is down from 47.1mpg to 46.3mpg.

In terms of kit, the KX-4 comes fitted with everything offered on the KX-3 model - which includes a full-leather interior, 18-inch alloys, sat-nav, Xenon headlights, cruise control, climate control and a panoramic sunroof - and adds park assist, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and stainless steel scuff plates.

The Kia Sportage KX-4 starts from £27,195, while the automatic version is available from £28,500. It's on sale now and benefits from Kia’s seven-year, 100,000 mile warranty.
