King Kia – Sportage PHEV 1.6 Review

By |2022-07-01T09:30:40+01:00June 27th, 2022|Car news and reviews, Kia Reviews, News|

The latest model is available with a Plug-in Hybrid drivetrain, establishing a new benchmark in the growing electrified SUV segment. The new Sportage PHEV features a 1.6-litre T-GDi engine, a 66.9kW permanent magnet traction electric motor and a 13.8kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack. These combine to realise a WLTP combined fuel economy figure of 252mpg, and an emissions-free driving range of up to 43 miles – enough to cover most daily commutes, or for local journeys.

Stonking little Kia – Stonic ‘2’ 1.0 T-GDi ISG

By |2022-01-26T20:24:11+00:00January 31st, 2022|Car news and reviews, Kia Reviews, News|

The Stonic is based on the Rio platform, uses the same engines, and brings style in terms of its looks which should appeal to a younger audience. It’s looks need to turn heads away from the likes of the likes of the Ford Puma, Renault Captur, Nissan Juke or Fiat 500. There’s plenty of options to choose from although there is but one engine, a nifty 1-litre, turbocharged 3-cylinder and available in 99hp or 120hp trim – the larger one includes a 48V mild hybrid boost aimed at reducing fuel consumption.
