NEW SPORTAGE PULLS IN 1,500 CUSTOMERS IN FIRST WEEKEND ON-SALE

The dramatic and stylish all-new Kia Sportage has caused a showroom-sensation during its first few days on sale with both existing owners and new-to-the-brand motorists putting down deposits on confirmed orders.

Although the high-quality and technologically advanced car only went on sale on Friday 5 February, Kia dealers up and down the country were reporting heavy showroom traffic as word of the car’s remarkable new appearance and up-graded interior spread.

In just the first three days almost 1,500 sold-orders had been placed by dealers to satisfy the avalanche of interest from customers – the best-ever three-day order-take in Kia’s history!

Paul Philpott, President and Chief Executive of Kia Motors (UK) Limited said: ”The all-new Sportage is a significant step forward for Kia, both in terms of interior quality and dynamic refinement and sophistication – and clearly both existing and new customers recognise that fact! Our dealers currently have only one worry – can we satisfy the demand? Well, both Kia in the UK and our factory in Slovakia are working flat-out to ensure we can!

“The previous version enjoyed its best-ever year in 2015 – its run-out year – and from this initial surge of interest I am confident the all-new Sportage is going to get off to a flying start and hopefully put last year’s sales performance in the shade.”

The all-new Sportage range consists of 18 trim versions, three engine variants and three different transmissions. With fuel economy ranging from 37.2 to 61.4mpg combined according to engine and transmission, CO2 figures starting at 119g/km, the new model is priced from £17,995 to £31,645 OTR.
