The S is the entry grade in the Sportage range starting with a list price of $32,445 for the 2.0-litre petrol variant with a manual gear box. This steps up to $34,445 for the auto, and then $39,845 for the diesel with an automatic transmission.

The S is the entry grade in the Sportage range starting with a list price of $32,445 for the 2.0-litre petrol variant with a manual gear box. This steps up to $34,445 for the auto, and then $39,845 for the diesel with an automatic transmission.

Coming standard on the entry grade S are 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument cluster, a six-speaker stereo, reverse camera and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, fabric seats air conditioning, LED headlights and those LED running lights.

The engines available in the S grade include a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol making 115kW/192Nm which was also in the previous model and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 137kW/416Nm and again this was in the old Sportage.

The Sportage is yet to be given a ANCAP crash rating, and we will report on this when it’s announced.

All grades have AEB which can detect cyclists and pedestrians even at traffic junctions, there’s lane departure warning and lane keeping assistance, rear cross traffic alert with braking, and blind spot warning as well.
