• Kia Sportage wins Used Car of the Year and Used SUV of the Year at the Car Dealer Used Car Awards 2018
  • 2018 marks Sportage’s 25th year in the UK
  • New and used Sportage models available at Leslies Kia

Kia Motors (UK) Limited’s best-selling model, the Sportage, which is available at Leslies Kia has picked up two further awards at the Car Dealer Magazine’s Used Car Awards. The awards focus on those in the market who provide the best peace of mind to customers.

Graham Vanassche, Dealer Principle at Leslies Kia says: “It’s great to see the Sportage winning so many awards. The Sportage is incredibly popular on the Isle of Wight and the car has been getting a great deal of well-deserved recognition in its 25th anniversary year. We stock a wide range of new and used Kia models at Leslies Kia including the Sportage, so we welcome people in the local area to pop in to see the range and book a test drive with our team.”

Wheeler Dealer Presenter, Mike Brewer said at the awards: “There’s big money in these big cars, if you can buy them at the right price and find the right buyer. Here in the UK we just can’t get enough of them and a lot of that comes down to the prestige of ownership. The Kia Sportage has been a huge success for the dealers who sell them both in the new market and used. It impressed our judges with its great quality and it flies off forecourts.”

Celebrating 25 years in the UK the Sportage has remained Kia’s best-selling model for six years in a row, with over 240,000 sold in the UK since its launch in 1993 and five million produced globally. The Sportage has recently been updated with fresh exterior and interior design, adding new safety and infotainment technologies, as well as efficient new powertrains and cutting-edge EcoDynamics+ 48-volt mild hybrid technology. The updated Sportage is also available from Leslies Kia now.

For customers wanting to buy a used Sportage, Kia’s multi-award winning Used Approved Programme is available through Kia’s 195 strong dealer network including Leslies Kia. The programme gives used car buyers the same peace of mind as those buying new, with all cars having the industry-leading warranty reinstated at seven years. The Approved Used Car Programme demonstrates the high standard and confidence that Kia has in the reliability, quality and preparation of all its Kia Approved vehicles.

The latest Kia Sportage is available now at Leslies Kia, priced from £20,305.
