FACELIFTED KIA SPORTAGE LAUNCHED.
10th April 2010 – With the new Kia Sportage due here after 2010, Naza Kia, the official distributor of Kia Motor vehicles in Malaysia unveiled the new facelifted Kia Sportage at the inaugural Naza Kia Family Fiesta carnival.
Facelift changes include radiator grille, front bumper, headlights, new rear garnish, rear combination lamp, heated windshields, and flip-up rear glass partition.
Also the facelift brings new seat trims, rear parcel shelf, enhanced door lights, and illuminated vanity mirrors, to the interior.
Mechanically the Sportage still uses a 2.0-litre CVVT petrol engine, with an output of 140hp and 184Nm of torque, and a four-speed automatic transmission with Shifttronic.
Despite the changes, Naza Kia would be maintaining the price for the CKD (completely-knocked down) Sportage facelift at RM112,000 OTR with insurance.
Naza Kia hopes to sell between 300 and 400 units of the facelift Sportage this year.
The two day Naza Kia Family Fiesta carnival, held last weekend, saw a variety of activities and contests, performances as well as test drives and free 18-point checks for Kia owners.
