Why the KIA Sportage won Drive Car of the Year

The all-new KIA Sportage has been crowned the 2022 Drive Car of the Year! Beating out other reputable competitors for the top prize, the KIA Sportage’s ability to combine style, technology, safety, luxury, and practicality into one affordable car makes it a vehicle worth checking out to suit you and your needs.

However, if you’ve never heard of the KIA Sportage, then you may need some more convincing on why it won such a prestigious award. Here are Mantello KIA Roxburgh Park’s top 3 reasons why the KIA Sportage won 2022 Drive Car of the Year – and why we think it should be the top candidate when buying your next car

Travel safe and sound

Australian drivers are increasingly concerned about the safety of their cars. Good news: the all-new Sportage comes with a range of safety features to make your journeys on the road safe and sound. This includes a Blind Spot View Monitor that gives you a second pair of eyes, allowing you to avoid any unexpected situations. The Intelligent Speed Limit Assist helps you stay within the designated safe driving speed parameters, and warns you if you are exceeding them.

We can’t forget to mention the Safe Exit Warning feature that alerts you if you attempt to open a door into oncoming traffic. For a final feature that will give you peace of mind, the Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist warns you if there are oncoming vehicles and pedestrians when reversing your car. With that in mind, rest assured that the KIA Sportage will make every outing a safe and secure experience.

Made for Australia

You don’t need us to tell you that Australia is prone to some fairly extreme weather! The KIA Sportage has been extensively tested to withstand the conditions of urban, country and outback roads so that you can comfortably drive on all the kinds of tracks this country has to offer. Not only that, customise your KIA Sportage and get the right powertrain that will make your Sportage perform just the way you want. Even more, you can choose from a selection of Drive modes to personalise your driving experience.

Luxury and convenience at your fingertips

When comparing cars, tech really does make all the difference. The interior of the KIA Sportage is sure to impress even the toughest of critics with its advanced technology with features like a Dual 12.3” curved display, Remote Smart Parking Assist, Ambient Mood Lighting, and USB charge points to keep your smartphones going, and so much more. Sit in comfort with the ability to heat and ventilate your seats, while also gazing up at the panoramic sunroof that will give you a view like no other. So, you may be thinking that with all this cutting-edge technology, there’s no way that the KIA Sportage can store anything. Not to worry - the KIA Sportage has enhanced passenger room in the back and larger luggage capability to help you store what you need.
