Seven Year Warranty For New Model of Kia Sportage


Kia has announced that all new 2008-model Kia Sportage compact SUVs manufactured at its facility in Zilina (Slovakia) will be backed by the ‘best’ new vehicle warranty ever offered, by any manufac-turer, on cars marketed in Europe.

Every Kia Sportage will benefit from a 7-year/150,000 kilometre new car warranty, similar to the warranty that comes with every Kia cee’d. Reflecting the enhanced quality of the latest Sportage, Kia is also making the new warranty ‘retroactive’ so that customers who have already purchased a new 2008-model Sportage, made in Europe, will also benefit from the 7-Year/150,000 kilometre cover.

The 2008-model Kia Sportage SUV is little changed on the outside, but features exterior enhancements that include a re-styled front grille, enlarged door mirrors, new-style alloy wheels, a broader range of paint finishes and body-colour bumpers for all models.

Inside, the 2008 Sportage has improved front seats with longer (by 40 mm) and wider (by 20 mm) cushions for greater support and comfort. Wind noise has been reduced by redesigning the door mirror housings and improving the seals around the electric sunroof.

The 2008 Sportage has 12.5% more towing capacity than the previous model – now up to a maximum of 1800 kg. Customers buying a 2008 Kia Sportage can choose from a range of 10 exterior colours and two interior colours.
