It is a difficult car to improve on but here at Fiskens we think that Kia have done exactly that!
To celebrate the Sportage's 25th birthday Kia have produced a limited number special edition called the Edition 25 From launch a special edition 1.6 GDi petrol model named ‘Edition 25’ will be available. ‘Edition 25’ celebrates the evolution of Sportage from its introduction to the Korean market in 1993 to become Kia’s best-selling market leader. With an amazing list of standard specification such as 1/25 Leather trim, Panoramic sunroof, 17" alooy wheels, 8" touchscreen satellite navigation system, LED headlights, 360o all round camera system.

New engine technology sees the 1.7 CRDi replaced by a new 1.6 CRDi offering improved economy and

Heading up the engine range in New Sportage is the new 2.0 CRDi 48-volt mild-hybrid. Badged as
‘EcoDynamics+’ this exciting new powertrain utilises a 48-volt battery to supplement acceleration and
extend engine ‘off-time’ in ISG mode. The 2.0 CRDi mild-hybrid also features an 8-speed automatic
transmission replacing the previous 6-speed automatic. For this particular powertrain we expect arrivals to
begin in the next 2 - 3 months.
The existing petrol 1.6 GDi and 1.6 T-GDi engines continue with minor revisions to comply with the latest
All powertrains are now compliant with the latest Euro 6d Temp emissions standards.
To comply with the latest Euro 6d Temp regulations diesel variants of Sportage will now utilise Selective
Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. Diesel vehicles are fitted with SCR to make use of Diesel Exhaust
Fluid (urea) stored in a separate tank. This is directly injected into a specially modified part of the vehicle’s
exhaust. A chemical reaction then removes polluting oxides of nitrogen (NOx). This is converted into
harmless water & nitrogen.
