Kia just pumped up its line-up with the introduction of the 2011 Kia Sportage.   The new Sportage is a complete redesign of the older model and now sports elements borrowed from European styling. What I like most from the current Sportage’s design is the grille.  It has character and conveys aggressiveness the way the Hyundai Tucson does.   Compared to the older model, the new Sportage is longer, lower, and wider.

Kia has two variants for the Sportage.  The 2.0 L 2WD GAS EX A/T model is priced at Php1,158,000 while the 2.0 L AWD GAS EX A/T model is priced at Php1,258,000.

     Has anyone here got their new KIA Sportage 2011 2.0 L 2WD GAS EX A/T? I got mine a month and a half now and its running 6km/liter gas city driving (around Quezon City), quite massive fuel consumption for city driving of which the reviews in the web that i read says otherwise. Currently the odometer reading is at 1,100km+, had it checked at KIA Service for its 1k km check and all they can say is the driving habbits. I just need another KIA Sportage owner to vent out the same concern please if not, it would still be great to hear from you guys…Thanks!
