Hello again my name is Julian McDougall and I am one of the friendly Sales Staff here at Toowong KIA. I thought I would write a blog on the Kia Sportage MY14 which is a recently released update to this much loved KIA.
Standard safety features across the Sportage range include front, side and curtain (SRS) airbags, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), (HAC) Hill Start Assist, (DBC) Downhill Brake Control, ABS brakes with (EBD) Electronic Brakeforce Distribution & Brake Assist, and (ESS) Emergency Stop Signal.
Standard features in the entry-level Si include a rear spoiler; cruise control; auxiliary and USB sockets, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, and speed dependent audio volume control.
In addition to the new SI-Premium model add reverse parking camera, LED daytime running lights, roof rails, partial leather seats and 17 inch alloy wheels.
The SLI model come with the edition of front parking sensors, satelite navigation with the infinity premium audio system, 4.2 inch TFT supervision instrument cluster, dual zone climate control, cooling glove box and all-wheel drive.
Sportage Platinum adds engine push button start/stop, leather trim seats and 8 way drivers power adjustable seat rear combination LED taillights, privacy glass, 18 inch alloys, panoramic sunroof, HID headlights (high intensity discharge) and front and rear seat warmers.
ENGINES / TRANSMISSIONS
The Sportage has the option of either petrol or diesel engines both having a 2.0-litre capacity with the six-speed automatic transmission changing smoothly.
I have worked for Toowong KIA for 1.5 years and it has been my privilege to experience, drive and sell a range of motor vehicles I genuinely believe in and every single test drive is an enormous pleasure.
The best part is seeing the look on my customers faces as they experience a KIA for the first time or even return customers who experience an upgrade on a vehicle they already love to drive.
I would totally recommend the Sportage to all potential customers from young first car customers, young/ young at heart customers looking for premium features in an SUV to parents and even empty nesters looking for a great looking, reliable, feature loaded and efficient vehicle.
