Value-for-money, greater features for latest Sportage variant

NAZA Kia Malaysia has released a new variant of the Kia Sportage range, the new Sportage 2.0EX, into the market. A powerful upgrade in terms of specs, the new Sportage 2.0 EX boasts a “breathtakingly distinct design, stunning interior and cutting-edge technology promising a driving experience like no other”.

It now dons a fresh new design with 18-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, rain sensor and auto folding side mirrors with side repeater. “From the front view, its fierce look lends a seductive force thanks to its elegantly designed headlamps with LED daytime running lights and Kia’s hallmark ‘Schreyer’ grille,” the company says.

“The sporty SUV is enhanced with convenience features like keyless entry, push start button and fully automatic air-conditioning. The five-inch audio system on the dashboard is also replaced with a new seven-inch touch screen audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The New Sportage EX comes with electrochromic mirror (ECM), an auto dimming rear view mirror which automatically dims when light touches its surface, in proportion to the light’s intensity. This seamlessly reduces discomfort and glare from the headlights of other cars.

Its top-of-the-line essential safety features provide a comfortable environment for occupants while emphasizing optimal convenience. These safety features include six airbags, anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability control (VSC) and hill-start assist control (HAC), all encompassed in an Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) body structure. This resulted in the New Sportage EX’s maximum safety rating score of five-stars in the Euro NCAP crash performance tests.

Offered in Cherry Black, Mercury Blue, Fiery Red, Snow White Pearl and Mineral Silver, the new Sportage 2.0 EX is priced at RM129,888 and is available in the market starting today. This variant comes with five years warranty with unlimited mileage*. With the introduction of this new Sportage being on sale alongside Sportage GT Diesel AWD; the other two variants – Sportage GT Petrol 2WD and Sportage KX is discontinued with immediate effect.
