About Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage sits alongside a number of other competitors in the ‘not quite an SUV but not quite a hatchback’ range of cars. It’s designed to be as spacious as, and great to drive as a hatchback, so perfect for the family, but higher off the ground with an off-road feel, like an SUV.
When it relaunched with the third generation back in 2010 it underwent a major stylistic overhaul, one that made it stand out from the crowd, not just with its competitors but from Kia’s other models too. This quirkier look has stuck with it through into the current fourth generation and has won it many admirers.
The fourth generation has a number of additional tech features in comparison to previous gens though, including 7-inch touch screens, Apple CarPlay and a number of interior and exterior options.
Why buy a used Kia Sportage
So what makes a Kia Sportage such a great car to buy? First up is the warranty. Kia sticks a massive 7-year warranty on their cars and they can transfer to new owners if you’re buying a used Kia Sportage.
Secondly is the unusual look of the Kia Sportage. It’s simply striking to look at, high off the ground with unusual curves it’s certainly distinctive. This look has won it many fans but it’s not necessarily for everyone.
The Kia Sportage is undoubtedly best for people looking for a family car. It’s spacious, although if you put three adults in the back they may struggle for legroom, and there are cup holders and USB ports in the back too. There’s a good amount of boot space, perfect for a big shop.
The standard tech in a Kia Sportage is good too, with aircon, bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and USB ports in even the very basic models.

Brief History of the Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage may have found itself in 2010, but the model has been around for a lot longer.
- Kia Sportage first generation (1993–2004): The first generation leant heavily on Mazda engineering as this was during Kia’s relationship with Mazda and Ford. At this stage, the Sportage had a slightly more SUV feel.
- Kia Sportage second generation (2004–2010): While many complained it wasn’t as good off-road, the car started looking less blocky, moving slightly more towards the sleeker style we know today.
- Kia Sportage third generation (2010–2015): The 2010 version of the Kia Sportage is where it really started to stand out from its competitors. It’s where it gained the bold look and truly combined its SUV roots with the feel of a hatchback.
- Kia Sportage fourth generation (2015-present): The current generation of the Kia Sportage took what the third generation made and ran with it. Mainly opting for a facelift and a little extra tech.
Which Kia Sportage Should I buy?
The Kia Sportage is available in 5 trim levels, the 1, 2, 4, GT-Line and the GT-Line S. There was a ‘3’ level trim, but they stopped making new ones in 2018, keep an eye out if you’re buying used though. Alongside these trim levels, there are a number of engines to choose from.
Kia Sportage 1
The Kia Sportage 1 is the basic trim level. Newer versions of the Sportage ‘1’ have a 7-inch touchscreen and reversing camera but older models, even in this gen, don’t have these. In the newer models, this screen has great connectivity options for your phone and is compatible with a number of map applications. The ‘1’ also comes with cruise control, air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels and hill start assist.
Kia Sportage 2
The Kia Sportage 2 is actually quite a sizable step up in terms of additional features from the ‘1’. The wheels are bigger, with 17-inch alloys. There’s also climate control in addition to the air-con alongside heated front seats. The rear windows are tinted. The screen comes complete with sat-nav and the reversing camera has parking sensors. The car has more safety features too, like lane-keep assist to prevent lane drifting, a speed limiter alongside the cruise control. There’s a few other features in the ‘2’ as well, so it’s a good option to consider over the more basic ‘1’, plus there are more engines to choose from.
Kia Sportage 4
The Kia Sportage 4 upgrades the 7-inch touchscreen by adding an extra inch and improving both the quality of the image and how it integrates with the design of the interior. This is just the beginning of the more ‘premium’ feel you get from the ‘4’. There’s a full-length sunroof and the front seats can be adjusted electrically, they’re also black leather. The steering wheel is heated and the reverse camera becomes a full 360° camera plus the sound system gets an upgrade, and that’s just the inside. The headlights are full LED and the wheels are bigger still from the ‘2’, a full 19-inches now. There’s additional safety features, like blind-spot warning, and there’s keyless entry too. The ‘4’ also gains access to additional engines. All in all, the ‘4’ adds a whole lot more for your money.
Kia Sportage GT Line
The Kia Sportage GT-Line nestles in where the ‘3’ would fit in if it was still a trim level. It doesn’t quite have all the extras as the ‘4’ but is a solid upgrade on the ‘2’. It has 19-inch alloy wheels and the black leather seats, plus the front parking sensors and keyless capabilities of the ‘4’ and the outside is generally much sportier.
Kia Sportage GT Line S
The Kia Sportage GT-Line S is easily the top trim level for the Kia Sportage. It’s a bit like a combination of the ‘4’ and the normal GT-Line. It has everything that both of these boasts, combining the tech of the ‘4’ with the sporty look and feel of the GT-Line, but then adds some extra tech. There’s wireless phone charging, heated and ventilated seats, adaptive cruise control and a number of other features. It’s well worth checking out.
What should I look for when financing a Kia Sportage?
Whenever you’re buying a used car there are things you need to look out for. Whether it’s signs of damage, patches of rust or any unusual noises during a test drive. While the Kia Sportage does come with an excellent 7-year warranty that may be transferable, it’s still worth making a few checks. The warranty means any issues should have been fixed, and if they haven’t been you should be able to get them sorted no problem, but it always pays to be cautious when you’re buying a used car.
