Kia Sportage 2016

Recommended Posts

I doubt you're going to get a lot of factory fitted stuff... it's just going to be like the Optima K5. The pricing is neither here nor there... in between the Sonata base model and the sunroof model. It's still significantly more expensive than the Sonata base model, so anyone who wants a 2.0 L but on a budget won't consider it cos it's above $120,000 wgdpap the Sonata base trim is well below that. It can't compete with the Sonata sunroof model cos the sunroof trim is only a few thousand more but has many more features...

 

Given that the OMV of the base model is already so high, I think this model no hope liao... it will be more expensive than the Tucson base model while only slightly better equipped, and only slightly less expensive than the sunroof Tucson model while being much poorer equipped. Same problem with the 1.0L sedan...

Went to KM price of tucson currently is 120k same price with the basic entry sportage. Not sure if the recent coe bidding brought the price of the Sportage down.

With all the bells and whistles factory fitted, be prepare to fork out 140k for the SX.

Per 5k OMV has a huge impact on the selling price.

If this is the case, I rather lay out another 25k for the Sorento.

Sorento price can get BMW grab tourer liao. Lol

Yeah. I test drove the Tucson and found it more impressive too.

 

Or rather more value for money

Watched the review. Gave a pretty positivie review of the new Sportage, specs are pretty similar with what are being offered local. Issue is that both countries have a  very different taxation on imported cars hence when it comes to condsideration, we cant help but to compare with other similar cars in the same price bracket. This is where the gadgets offered rules over looks, design, or even power.

 

Current local Sportage is a no go comparing to Froester XT, Tucson, Xtrail and some others.

Still dont look enticing at this price. Current model too bare. 

Likely go for Sorento. Any bros keen for Kia, perhaps we can get a better deal together?

Likely to decide by this month end.

Anyone owing a Kia Sportage? Any review to share? Worth the price or should have get other call for the same amount $125K range? what are your thoughts

 

These are the following cars you can consider:

 

Kia Sportage

$126K

 

Hyundai Tucson

$128K

 

Nissan X-Trail

$130K

 

Subaru Forester 2.0

$123K

 

Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4

$120K

 

Mazda CX 3

$124K

 

There's nothing else in this price range... the CX3 is much smaller than the Sportage.

 

Most value for money is the Outlander at only $120K, but it's a 2.4 L. The ASX is one class below, much smaller...

 

The best car in the segment is the X-Trail, it's one class above the rest, but at $5K more...

 

Conclusion is that you can get the X-Trail if that additional $5K is within budget, or if you're looking to reduce budget, then the Outlander, but the savings go to pay the extra road tax and fuel (breaks even with cost over 10 years for Sportage).

 

So the Sportage is really in the sweet zone... it's more modern than the Outlander... but not shabby compared to the X-Trail... yet it costs less...

Hi, I have been driving the sportage gt line since Nov and did a road trip up north to KL over cny.

 

Overall I'm very pleased with the performance and practicality. Sportage definitely has more features than the X-Trail and outlander. For the amount of gadgets you get, it really worth it.

 

Previously I drive a civic FD 2.0, the gt line does drive better even this it's high. Suspension is good when cornering too.

 

Only concerns are, the engine performance can be better despite 155bhp and FC is ard 12KM/L based on 70% expressway driving.

Doesn't matter, same for all Sportage models... try Laser Shades Singapore. Google for their contact. You're looking at $250 for 5 pieces. All windows except the front windscreen.

Went to Laser Shade. Unfortunately it does matter. Kia Sportage generation 3 (2015-16) vs generation 4 (2016-2017) windows differs in measurement. Gen 3 sunshade too small for Gen 4's

Can't see ATF stick in Sportage. Any owner can advise whether Sportage needs ATF fluid change, how do guage? Any experience or pointers to share?
