Is a used Kia Sportage a good car?

If you’re looking for a practical family SUV but don’t want to look dull, the Kia Sportage could be the SUV for you. It’s similar to the popular Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai Tucson but it’s just that little bit more interesting to look at.

You get cool boomerang-style headlights and a large grille that give it a premium look, but with all the creases and sharp lines there’s a chance the styling won’t be for you.

Inside it’s a bit more conventional, but it continues to be stylish and is solidly built, with a large, sharp infotainment display in the middle. The climate controls and navigation are located in a switchable touch-sensitive bar, which is a cool solution but not the easiest to use on the move.

Just as important for family life is the fact that it’s really spacious, with lots of room for both front and rear passengers. And the boot is big, too, beaten only by the Tucson.

On the road, the Sportage is easy to drive in town thanks to its light steering and decent visibility. However, it’s a little uncomfortable on the motorway. Engine-wise you have a good mix of options, with diesel, petrol, self-charging hybrid and plug-in hybrid, so there’s something to suit your needs.

What to look for when buying a second hand Kia Sportage

The fifth-generation Kia Sportage hasn’t been on sale long enough to get a good view of its reliability, but it’s worth noting that Kia has a good reputation for building cars that last.

The brand and the latest Sportage have been scoring highly in owner satisfaction surveys, so if this is an important aspect for you then that’s reassuring. Kia owners also rate dealer interaction well, so if something does go wrong your dealer should be helpful with affordable repairs.

As such, when buying a used Kia Sportage you should keep to the usual buying tips, such as looking for any damage to the outside or inside, paying particular attention to the alloys and tyres. You should also aim for cars that have a good service history and clear MOT history.

Kia Sportage FAQs

Although the latest model hasn’t been on sale too long, the signs are good as it scores highly on owner surveys. Kia also has a good reputation for building reliable cars.

The Kia Sportage is only available as a 4x4 on plug-in hybrid models, or GT-Line S versions of the self-charging hybrid.

The highest-specification Kia Sportage is the GT-Line S. This comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, suede upholstery, extra driving assistance features, and a high-quality Harman Kardon sound system.

The fifth-generation Kia Sportage is made in Žilina, Slovakia.
