Kia Sportage 2.0

Just went to Naza Kia showroom to have a look at the locally assembled Kia Sportage. The interior and exterior is nothing much differenct from the CBU Kia Sportage. The paint work is better than my Proton Waja. The salesman bring up one very good selling point - Kia Sportage looks like Volvo XC90, which I have to agreed with him. The exterior of this SUV really attracted me. Below are some of the information I managed to get.

Net Selling Price (with Standard Accessories) = RM 108,016.90
Registration = RM 300
Road Tax = RM 439.20
HP Ownership Claim Fee = RM 50
Inspection and Number Plate = RM 150
Insurance (Sum Insured: RM 107,000) = RM 3043.90
Total Selling Price (OTR) = 112,000

Accessories Package includes:

  1. 4-Speed Shiftronic Auto Transmission
  2. 16x6.5J Alloy Wheel
  3. Dual Airbags with Pretensioners
  4. ABS with EBD
  5. TCS
  6. Trip Computer
  7. 2DIN FM/AM/CD/MP3 with USB and AUX Input
  8. 6-Speakers
  9. Reverse Sensors
  10. Air-Cond
  11. Power Steering
  12. Power Window
  13. Metal Grain Centre Fascia & Door Trim
  14. Chrome Coated Inner Handle
  15. Aluminium Assist Grip
  16. Mid Guard
Available in 4 colours:
  1. Satin Silver
  2. Smar Blue
  3. Natural Olive
  4. Black Cherry
Black Cherry is my favourite.

The car is powered by 2.0 L DOHC CVVT engine producing 142PS at 6000 rpm with the peak torque of 184Nm at 4500 rpm. The 4WD and TCS on/off button are located conveniently near the steering. With just 1 button press, you can turn on the 4WD function. Besides this, the 4WD will auto kicked in if slippery is detected.

Interior wise is more towards black and grey trim. From the half-leather seat to the dashboard also in black and grey. No wooden trim on steering and dashboard.

Tried to open the door. Can feel the doors are heavy and solid.
