We are, of course, talking about the actual generation of the model, which will receive a “farewell” version before the release of the new generation.
The new KIA Sportage will soon be presented in a bright and attractive form in the European market. Technically, it is inferior to many of the Hyundai Tucson, although many liked its predecessor. Against this backdrop, the Korean automaker decided to offer European buyers a Sportage Final Edition. And it differs, first of all, in a large number of standard equipment.
The special model is based on the entry-level Edition 7 and also offers a range of comfort features including navigation and automatic air conditioning. Even in the Edition 7, the Sportage crossover has smartphone integration, Bluetooth hands-free, reversing camera, cruise control, light sensor, leather steering wheel, power windows front and rear, central locking with radio remote control and 16-inch alloy wheels .
In addition, the Final Edition comes standard with dual-zone automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, rear parking sensors, rain sensors and roof rails, as well as an 8-inch navigation system and Kia Connect online services.
The new special version is only available for the front wheel drive 1.6 GDI, supplied with a 6-speed manual transmission. Gasoline engine with 132 hp. direct injection accelerates the Sportage to 100 km / h in 11.5 seconds. 1.6 GDI Final Edition is priced at 23,990 euros. According to KIA, buyers will be able to save 1,190 euros over a similar production version.
In addition to the standard color Carrara white, four metallic colors are optionally available (at an additional cost of 620 euros). As usual, the special model comes with a 7-year manufacturer’s warranty and 7-year navigation with KIA updates.
