25 years and counting for the Kia Sportage

Date published: 06 November 2018

The new Kia Sportage, available at OMC Kia in Oldham, is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The model was upgraded this summer with a range of enhancements to further cement its position as the brand’s best-selling model in Europe.

Furthermore, since its first ever launch back in 1995, the Kia Sportage has won an impressive 24 coveted awards, the most recent being ‘Best Used Car’ at the Automotive Management Awards 2018.

Another recent accolade includes being named the overall winner of the Diesel Car Used Car Top 50. The Kia Sportage also continues to be the brand’s biggest seller with 28,776 models delivered to customers so far in 2018. In the first quarter of 2018, the Sportage hit over five million global sales since launch.

To celebrate 25 years of the Kia Sportage, a special ‘Edition 25’ grade is available at OMC Kia in Oldham and paired exclusively with the 1.6 GDi engine with manual transmission. 

Priced at £25,655, equipment highlights include 17-inch alloy wheels, black cloth and leather upholstery and premium paint, as well as an eight-speaker JBL® premium sound system with sub-woofer, external amp and front centre speaker, an 8.0-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system and Android AutoTM and Apple CarPlayTM smartphone compatibility.

In addition, there’s Kia’s Smart Entry system, heated front and rear outer seats, heated steering wheel, LED-bi function headlights with adaptive lighting system, LED rear lights, front and rear parking sensors and a 360-degree Around View Monitor with Reversing Camera System.

Stewart McQuillan, Sales Director at OMC, said: “The Kia Sportage is already so popular with the people of Greater Manchester, so we’re excited to offer the ‘Edition 25’ to celebrate 25 years of the Kia Sportage.

"We look forward to welcoming the people of Oldham to test drive the Sportage very soon.”
