Winner of Best Medium Crossover
The Kia Sportage has always been a firm favourite with the Irish buyer and the new one looks set to continue that trend as it has been incredibly well received by customers and critics alike and was a comfortable winner of the Medium Crossover section. The new Sportage continues Kia’s good form in terms of design of late with a handsome exterior matched to a really clever interior. AA Ireland Car Awards Juror Philip Hederman of The Herald said; “The latest generation Sportage has upped the ante in style, comfort and luxury. The cabin is second to none with a new curved digital display and a real premium feel. Excellent choice of powertrains too including Diesel, petrol, mild hybrid and PHEV. And we can’t forget the 7-year warranty.” The Sportage starts from €35,500 with a 1.6-litre Diesel but the pick of the range is the excellent €46,000 PHEV version.
