2011 Sportage

From: http://www.drivearabia.com/news/2010/08/06/kia-sportage-2011-uae-launch-at-new-dubai-showroom/

Technically, the 2011 Kia Sportage has been on sale in the UAE for more than a month now. However, the local dealer for Kia, Al Majid Motors, chose to hold the “official” launch of the new Sportage alongside the opening of their brand new showroom in Deira, Dubai.

The new showroom is the third one in Dubai for Kia, showing the growth of the brand in this country even during a recession. For the opening, the showroom was filled with Sportages only, with a bunch more Sportages parked outside to let the public know what’s going on.

The 2011 Kia Sportage will be available in various trim levels. The base model gets a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder with a choice of front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, with standard power accessories, cloth seats, 6-speaker CD/MP3 player, USB port, ABS and one airbag. The higher models, with a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder, come only in all-wheel-drive form, and in top trim, features include a panoramic glass roof, leather, starter button, two airbags, cargo-area cover, stability control, rear camera with sensors and more.
Our close look at the Sportage revealed a very attractive vehicle that should sell even better than the previous version. Trimmed externally with chrome and LED lighting strips, it looks a bit like a tall hatchback due to the lack of side-windows in the rear quarters. But it stands out thanks to a low roofline and high shoulders. That low roofline translates to limited headroom for tall people, as our photographer Faisal kept complaining about, expecially in models with the glass roof. However, legroom is excellent both front and rear although the industry-standard hard-plastic interior is a let-down. The higher models at least get door-armrest padding.

Prices start at Dhs 63000 for the base 2.0-litre model and Dhs 68,000 for the base 2.4-litre version, topping out at a competitive Dhs 81,000. Certain showrooms in the UAE are also quoting the top version at Dhs 91,000.


Middle East Source but most probably same with the PH model soon. Middle East are one of the first one to have the 2011 models. Seen Few of this already here in Riyadh.
