Thank you to our existing personal leasing customer, from Teddington (London), for sending through the picture of their brand-new 68 plate vehicle – the freshly-facelifted Kia Sportage SUV!
Like many new personal lease customers, the demand for SUV-style vehicles is unrelenting. For many families, having the traditional estate or MPV vehicle is no longer an attractive proposition.
As those vehicles are probably not as aesthetically pleasing, nor do manufacturers invest as much money into them, many customers want the SUV style vehicle.
With a higher driving position, aesthetically attractive, high-levels of specification and ample boot space, these SUVs offer a great all round solution for customers. Kia, in particular, has enjoyed massive success over the last 10 years, principally as it was one of the first manufacturers to offer a genuine alternative to the Nissan Qashqai.
Adding higher-specification and an unbeatable 7-year warranty, Kia managed to emerge as one of the most trusted and well-respected brands in the UK. This has meant success for some of its other ranges BUT all of this is down to the Sportage for setting the standard.
In terms of the car shown here, the Kia Sportage 1.6T GDi GT-Line S DCT Auto (AWD) (Petrol), this is based on the following configuration:
· Dark Penta Metal Premium Paint
· Black Leather upholstery
· High gloss black centre fascia
· 19″ alloy Wheels B-type
As standard the car includes automatic rain sensing wipers, privacy glass, tinted glass, ESP and traction control, hill start assist, Apple car play, Bluetooth, wireless smartphone charger, adaptive cruise control, emergency stop signal system, blind sport monitoring, forward collision warning, front parking sensor, lane keep assist, rear parking sensor, surround camera system, power tailgate, 8” touch screen, connected services, satellite navigation, auto dimming rear view mirror, heated and electric folding door mirrors, JBL premium sound system, steering wheel mounted controls, body coloured externals, dual exhaust pipes, electric panoramic glass sunroof, silver skid plates, adaptive headlights, bi-xenon headlights, cornering lights, follow me home headlights, high beam assist, LED daytime lights and fog lights, air conditioning, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, leather sports steering wheel, paddle shift controls, stainless steel pedals and scuff plates, LED compartment lighting, 10-way adjustable electric seats, driver’s lumbar support, anti-theft alarm, ventilated front seats, immobiliser, 19” alloys and a smart keyless entry system. As the top of the range, there are no further factory options you can add to this vehicle – this is the most luxurious Kia you can buy!
On the technical-side, company car and business users can note the P11d at £31,355.00 and CO2 at 174g/km for company car and BiK calculations. The 1591CC 7 speed auto engine delivers 37.2 combined MPG, 174ps and 0-62 times of 9.1 seconds. Service intervals are set at every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever lands sooner.
So would you select the Kia Sportage as your next car leasing option or would the Qashqai, Hyundai Tuscon or VW Tiguan get your business?
