Love this SUV. Great Price, Best Warranty & Great to Drive.
Got the 2018 AO special model with the extra safety features and 18" wheels. Best price SUV out there. The 2.0L diesel is amazing so much power, Sport mode is WOW. AWD and just hugs the road. So glad we bought this car. Downsized from Isuzu MU-X. But the Sportage will still tow 1900kgs. Love this car !!!
Best SUV ever
This the best SUV my wife has owned yet . Great to driver ,easy to drive powerful to go the long haul can not fault in anyway after 3 yrs . Lazy mans car with 6 speed auto box and 2ltr diesel turbo go like a rocket. The all wheel drive is great in the soft or wet stuff
Initial Review - excellent
Traded in the 5 year old diesel Kia Sorento for a diesel Sportage as I wanted a smaller SUV with similar power, comfort and some extra gadgets (sat nav) to the Sorento. Its only done 1500 km but it has been excellent. Getting great fuel economy (6 litres/100km, 16 km/litre ) on the Freeway which is better economy than I got in the Sorento. Getting 12 km/litre around the city. Seems to have plenty of power, is quieter than the Sorento, very comfortable and all my golf gear fits in the boot. Styling could be better but this is a personal thing. Plenty of cabin space, good air con, although no CD player (solved with a $90 purchase of a portable CD player with attachments from Jaycar so CDs can be played through the car's sound system). The Sorento was trouble free and expect the Sportage to be likewise (its got a 7 year warranty).
November 6th 2017 Update: After 1 Year
Excellent car having just completed its first year. Performance, fuel economy and comfort were the highlights. Noise level was not excessive and its been easy to drive. Nothing to dislike, although lack of a CD meant it was necessary to purchase a CD player that plugs into the dash. Fuel economy no worse than 9 litres per 100 km, best 5.7 litres per 100 km, average 7.5 litres per 100 km over 12500 km. No faults detected so reliability was excellent.
