Prices are much as they were before, which means that like its predecessor, this car sells in the £18,000 to £30,000 bracket. Given that it's comparably sized to models like Toyota's RAV4 and Honda's CR-V that'll cost you from around £25,000, that looks like good value. This Sportage's closest rival is Hyundai's Tucson, which is priced comparably and is mechanically almost identical.
All models come well equipped, with features like 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth with voice recognition and music streaming, powered heated mirrors, cruise control, a DAB radio and front foglights that turn with the bends, all at prices starting at around £18,000 - which seems like a decent deal. Other standard '1'-grade features include LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, tinted glass, an alarm, all-round electric windows, reclining rear seats, a trip computer, leather trim for the gearshifter and the multi-function steering wheel, plus a six-speaker CD audio system with USB and Aux-in ports. Avoid the 1.6-litre petrol engine and you get a temporary spare wheel too.
