Great car

I use the car for general commuting to and from work and also for longer family trips on the weekend. It fits the 2 car seats and an adult across the back seat and plenty of room for luggage and a pram in the back.

I have had it almost 1 year without a problem!

A fantastic car and would highly recommend.

Great Car with amazing features

Great car, feels like a spaceship with lane keep (steers itself to stay in lane) and adaptive cruise control (auto breaks and automatically takes off again).

It's brand new and been waiting for the latest MY19 to have these new features, well worth the wait.

The GT version has everything so no need to option anything, the option lists on others is mind blowing but this has everything no need to option up at all. Australian tuned suspension apparently done in SYD, feels great on the road.

Excellent All-rounder

Wow. Have Kia come a long way in the last few years. Have only owned this vehicle for a couple of months but am very impressed. The level of equipment, particularly safety equipment for the second most basic model is amazing. Build quality is very good and Kia offer a 7 year warranty. Have previously not been a fan of SUV's but this one is great to drive. Power and fuel economy are about what you would expect without being outstanding. Plenty of room for passengers and luggage. Very impressed with this car so far.

Kia Sportage GT Line 2018

I absolutely love my new Kia. It drives so smooth & has many safety features like parking assist. There is always room for improvement no matter how good you are at reverse parallel parking. I also enjoy the auto hold brake so you can take your foot off the brake at stop lights. So much room in the front & back. Just love love love it.

Simply Brilliant

Have only just purchased this car but just love it. Has so many safety and standard features. Beautiful to drive and very economical. Being older and with back and health problems it is very easy to get into and out of. Driving position is excellent and seats are very comfortable. Good headroom and reasonable legroom front and back. Plenty of luggage space.

Kia Sportage Sat Nav fail

I have the current model (2016) sportage platinum GT line. The sat nav was out of date at the day of purchase, well out of date. Speed zones always out and roads that were finished years earlier are not on there. The dealer advised it would cost $300 to update it. I made contact with Kia customer service to seek more information and they were downright rude and could not care less. They confirmed $300 to update. It's about keeping customers for life or losing them. I would NEVER buy another Kia!

5th December- I've since bought another SUV and they update the Sat Nav every year. It looks like they look after their customers.

Serves me Perfectly

I have bought Kia Sportage SLi version so it has got leather seats.

Driving Experience: I mainly drive on weekends and that too on Highways like M1. I am really pleased with Driving experience. The cruise options are handy in long drive.

Comfort: Since it is SLi version, it has got leather seats. It is very comfortable for me and my family. The boot space is huge. There is enough legroom for tall people and two people can seat in back after placing a big car seat.

Kia has a 7 year capped warranty scheme.

Excellent car

Excellent car. Economical, no frills, good value for money. Corners well. Wi fi is easy to set up. Good boot space. No completely silent but acceptable. interior no frills, would have liked leather but that would have increased the pice.

Reliability is A1, no problems at all. In all, a good car.

Lovely SUV KIA 2016

We purchased a brand new Kia Sportage just over 12 months ago. We have driven 30000km to central Australia, Northern N.S.W. and in comfort and in style. The car is spacious and easily accommodates camping gear, tent and suitcases. The diesel engine is quite economical and powerful. The car has automatic reverse parallel parking which is a dream.

Not a bad choice

The Kia Sportage is good value for money.Well equipped and the diesel is good on fuel.Very easy to drive. A bit awkward to park. Faults in my opinion is it is a harsh diesel that doesn't like being pushed at higher overtaking speeds.Seats are not the most comfortable, could do with more support.On a positive note it is a very well priced package and with a 7 year warranty, should be definitely on anyone's shopping list for a suv.

Great suv

My daughter has had a few Kia's so we decided to look at the sportage. We haven't had any dramas with it, and the warranty is a great selling point.

The car looks classy and the interior is sophisticated. I only wish the passenger seat in the front was as high as the driver. I love the rear sensors and all the technology that comes with the car.

Good on petrol and good vision.

Has all the bells and whistles

Have a KIA Sportage GTL, fanstastic car, it has everything that other consumers are paying double the price for. Blind sport detection, lane control, keyless entry, keyless trunk, sunroof, apple car, speed zone arlets, android wireless charger, electric seat control, heated & cooling seats the list is endless people. Take a look at them before you go and spend extra 50k on car.

Great value. Has all the bells and whistles

Great SUV car. When you compare to other brands in same category this ticks all the boxes and is excellent value for money. 7 year warranty - can't go wrong. Took it in for first service and it was free! Back seat passengers appreciate the speakers and heating/cooling vents. Kia have thought of everything. Highly recommend.

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 !!!

Such a brilliant vehicle

Upgraded to a Kia Sportage from a Toyota camery and will never go back, the Kia has so much space and oh my lord the boot space is just amazing. We’ve done so much travelling since purchasing our Kia and it has never skipped a beat. I couldn’t recommend Kia anymore then I already do.

SI Premium - a delight to drive

I purchased my Kia Sportage after much research about vehicles of this size. The Kia had the best options and inclusions, and so it was a natural choice. The handling is marvellous, and there is minimal road noise. The only qualm I have is around the performance of the engine, as it sometimes feels a bit underdone.

The legroom in the car is excellent, especially after I changed from my work car, a Mazda CX-3.

So far so good in terms of reliability! Cost is around $65-80 to fill up depending on the petrol station and time of the year.

Love it!

Best car I've ever driven. Perfect for the young family. We got it after our first baby was born when we realised a hatch wasn't big enough. The GT version has all the safety features we could have wanted as well as the handy life savers of key lessons entry and auto tail gate, which make juggling a bub that much easier. Never scramble for keys again.

AWD gives that extra piece of mind in the uncertain Queensland weather. Feels so safe and secure to drive. Drives and parks like a much smaller car.

Can't go past this car. Not only is it stylish it is cheaper than comparable brands. You will spend the same on the top model as the less equipped models in other brands.

Bullet Proof SUV

This Sportage was delivered 4/4/2016 and now has 56299klms on the clock. On holidays we tow a Johnoo's Camper Trailer behind it on both bitumen & dirt roads no problems. Last trip from Sydney to Cameron Corner which is back of Burke over Black Stump Creek and it never gave any trouble at all. It's the base model but has everything we want in it. Kia have maintained the vehicle perfectly and we will be sorry to see it go when it reaches 90,000klms. Like all 4 cylinder engines if you keep the revs up they work well. If you drop the revs then don't expect them to perform well.
We will replace it with another Sportage when the time comes Show details ·  2

Great Car, Super Reliable

We got the Kia Sportage SI this year and have been impressed with the range of features and especially with how it drives. We couldn't give it the full 5 stars as we have had intermittent issues with the radio, however the car is ultra reliable, tech inside is good and the fuel consumption is great. The 7 year warranty is a huge bonus.

Great Car but poor audio head unit!

Hey,,, Have had this car for a little over 2 weeks now & love almost everything about it!,, Drives very well, comfortable, love the tiger front grill, big panoramic sunroof, great options....... BUT!!!! my biggest gripe is the the multimedia head unit that is offered, to put simply it is CRAP!! Cheap & Nasty. Not very user friendly, VERY POOR Radio reception & sound?. does not even come with DAB radio? In this day & age it should be standard on all vehicles or at least on this model being the top of the line.. overseas models come with Dab radio so I don't understand why Kia skimped out on us here..

Awesome Car

We purchased the 2017 Kia Sportage GT-LINE (diesel) in February 2017.

2.0 Turbo Diesel. 6 speed auto transmission.

The performance and handling of this car is GREAT. The 2.0 turbo diesel makes this car FLY.

Economy is GREAT; on the highway we achieve about 5.9litres/100km and around town about 9litres/100km.

Build quality cannot fault.

Equipment & safety, this car has so many features and safety equipment. While shopping around we found it has more features than most of the European vehicles that cost almost double (and still don't have all the features of this KIA).

You cannot beat the 7 year warranty with roadside assist.

Servicing costs...a little on the expensive side through the dealer.

*** I would recommend this car ***

2017 Sportage ! PERFECT !

Bought the New Kia Sportage 2017 make just 3 months ago. I love driving this car, superb in design and drive both. Good performance so far. It is a good value for money SUV. Spacious inside, interiors are satisfactory. I would recommend to spend a few more dollars and buy Si Premium as it has a better interior upgrade. :)

Good specs in the amount you pay !

I really like the KIA Sportage Si Premium. I bought it recently in red colour which really looks amazing and so does the exterior. More specs available in KIA Si Premium than the base model. Good value for money. I drive it everyday for at least 80 Km. therefore, so far no issues at all. Would recommend if you don't want to spend much on a car but still would love to have above average specs.

Excellent vehicle

I purchased my Sportage in Oct 2016 and have had no issues at all. Everything has been positive. I'm very impressed with the overall finish of paint and panels. Interior is also very well finished. I'm regularly getting good fuel economy. Around 8 litres/100km. My wife loves to drive it

Great car, Highly recommend

I've had this car for almost 2 years and it still drives as though I picked it up from the dealership yesterday. It is very roomy but doesn't feel large on the road and it's very zippy for a 4cyl, especially compared to some other brands I test drove. Excellent value for price and with 7 year warranty and road side assist! Servicing is also very affordable. When it is time to upgrade I think my only change would be moving up to the new Sportage GT model

LOVE this car

Have had many cars over the years, mostly bought new. This is hands down the best car ever. The list of features is impressive, love the sunroof, keyless ignition, heated/cooled seats. Best of all it is able to seat adults comfortably in the rear seat without moving the front seats forward.

Absolutely love this car

Had this car for over a year now, and due for its second 15K service. It continues to satisfy. The equipment spec is second to none. I love the grunt of a diesel engine. I even like sitting in the back as it has plenty of room. I do hope they will wake up and give up on stopping one from connecting the phone via bluetooth when it is not in Park. it will connect sometimes nevertheless. It is really dumb to think that somehow using the touchscreen to connect the phone is any different from using it to select an FM station.
