Kia Sportage 2018

The 2018 Kia Sportage range of configurations is currently priced from $18,913. Our most recent review of the 2018 Kia Sportage resulted in a score of 7.9 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: The Sportage is a clear example of why people are picking SUVs over hatchbacks.  The equipment levels and the notable bump in practicality are real boosts to the appeal and, although the Sportage SLi is a tad pricey compared to some competitors, it nails the look and feel most couples or small families are looking for.

This is what Tom White liked most about this particular version of the Kia Sportage: Nice balanced ride, Practical cabin, Improved safety

The 2018 Kia Sportage carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1900 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Kia Sportage 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Sportage 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Toyota Kluger: What SUV would have less cabin noise?

    So many things affect road noise, which makes it difficult to fix. There’s the road surface itself, the tyres, and the noise insulation in the vehicle. The Honda CR-V might well be quieter, but could still be noisy on the roads you drive on. If the road noise is the thing that is making you switch vehicles, then it might be worth talking to a tyre dealer about a tyre that might be quieter than the ones on your Kluger. If you want to go down that road, you could try a Mazda CX-5 or CX-7, a Kia Sorento or Sportage, Toyota RAV4.

  • Does the Kia Sportage offer lumber support?

    All cars have some degree of lumbar support, but whether that’s enough for you is something only you can determine. I’m not aware of any carmaker that offers anything to increase lumbar support. I would suggest you consult a company that specialises in seats for people with special needs, a company such as Recaro.
