Hi my name is Kieren Olney and I am one of the new car sales consultants here at Toowong KIA. I have the pleasure of driving a large range of cars in my time in the automotive sector and would to share my thoughts with you on the Kia Sportage Series 2 Platinum.
The Series 1 Sportage is a great SUV that holds up well to its competitors but now the Series 2 is here with new and enhanced features, but that great European styling that made the Sportage stand out from the rest is back and available in new and exciting colours as well as the colours that made the Sportage stand out. The ride and handling of the Series 2 Sportage have been improved giving even more comfort while driving. The HID lights (High-intensity discharge lamps) on the Platinum Series 2 make the road more visible along with the addition of static cornering lights to all models help to avoid and incidents by giving you more light to be able to see the road clearly.
The day time running lights make the car looking classy but also help with improved visibility for other drivers. Rear parking sensors help to avoid hitting objects, but with the addition of the reverse camera help to avoid running over to hitting toys of a person. In The Series 2 sits (your choice) a 2.0lt turbo Diesel or a 2.0lt Petrol engine both gives great fuel economy.
Kia has taken the comfort of all the passengers in mind and has added seat warmers for the front and rear of the car as well as making the seat comfortable. The back seats can very comfortably seat 3 adults while in the front the driver’s seat has lumbar support for those long drives. The cooling glove is a great feature when you want to keep those drinks cold or food fresh while driving long distances.
The factory fit satellite navigation is fast and easy to use. With the addition of live traffic updates you will always know if the is an accident ahead of you. The Bluetooth media streaming and phone connection is great really easy to use and everything is right in front of you, the Sportage downloads your contacts, call history from your phone so there is no need to guess how is calling you. The dual zone climate control is great at stopping those I am to hot or cold issue. With the front passenger and the driver being able to change the temperature to what they want. The passengers in the back will get a sore neck looking out of the panoramic sunroof with the sunroof at the front able to tilt and slide over the rear sunroof.
