Launched just a year ago, Fourth generation the Kia Sportage is being a commercial success. With almost 17,000 units sold, compact SUV closed 2016 as fourth best-selling SUV globally in Spain after the undisputed Nissan Qashqai and just a few steps already Renault Captur (Smaller SUV) and Hyundai Tucson (Based on the same platform), which occupied the second and third position.

With striking design, good interior space compared to rivals and a great balance between ride comfort and agility on the road, the Kia Sportage also added after its last renovation more equipment to position itself as a model and avant-garde. But after face and with virtually all of its major rivals SUV (this link you will find the complete comparative), the question is how we do todayKia Sportage more interested in what? Given that version superior diesel 184 hp 2.0 CRDi only sold with AWD 4×4, firing their price above 35,000 euros already, we set the look in his two best-selling diesel, Access (1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi 115 hp and 136 hp), both the 4×2 version also most demanded. Does it outweigh the increased power and engine capacity of 2.0 CRDi? What difference have real consumption? How much more one than the other? Both versions measure our Technical Center to draw conclusions.

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi vs: performance

We started the duel analyzing its performance. And, both accompanied by 6-speed manual transmission, what is certain is that, although they differ “only” 20 CV … in practice there are differences. Also questions of equipment, Sportage 2.0 CRDi weighs about 100 kg, what should be a handicap. However, this version gets highway take advantage of their greater mechanical displacement and, above all, greater engine torque and low speed.

With a 25% more real force (2.0 CRDi offers maximum torque of 38.1 mkg and 1.7 CRDi, 28.6 mkg), the upper Diesel 136 hp leads between 1 and 2 seconds at 115. We do not think that is something definitive or can resolve the doubt, but the evidence greater power of superior Diesel, you’ll notice especially the more load the Sportage with the family. Question of power and acceleration, because both sonority and braking (Either here weight is a drag on 136 hp) no technical draw. At the moment, a plus for the 2.0 CRDi.

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi vs: consumption

We still have a key chapter in any family car. And the Kia Sportage, basically, it is. Submit it to 1.7 CRDi 115 hp and the 2.0 CRDi 136 to our usual measurements of actual consumption. And here, plus for the small diesel engine … how could it be otherwise. But … So how do to be definitive in the election? Well, as before, we believe that either. The difference is almost exact regardless of measurement: 0.3 l / 100 km lead in urban consumption, and 0.4 l / 100 km on the road, always in favor of the 1.7 CRDi. The average for both is the same, almost 0.4 l / 100 km less consumption of 115 hp vs. 136. The truth is that neither seem excessive considering the difference in weight and superior performance advantage. Both of them They are restrained consumption, but not extraordinary. To get an idea, the new Peugeot 3008 1.6 120 HP BlueHDi we spent only 5.4 l / 100 km highway and 6.3 l / 100 km in town, one of the most efficient of the moment. Draw for now between the two Sportage.

CONSUMPTION Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi Kia Sportage 2.0 CRDi
Consumption city 7.1 l / 100 km 7.4 l / 100 km s
Consumption Highway 5.7 l / 100 km 6,1 l / 100 km
average consumption 6.28 l / 100 km 6.62 l / 100 km s

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi vs: space

Here there is no grief, just measurements. Obviously, Sportage 1.7 CRDi both the 115 hp 2.0 CRDi as 136 have exactly the same space on board. The interesting thing here is in comparing its rivals. With excellent interior height, a correct width, good legroom and a fantastic boot, the Sportage is positioned very well in class. Continuing the new 3008, the Sportage will exceed in all measurements except rear width, and It does the Nissan Qashqai. The new Seat Ateca, meanwhile, is slightly more livable inside but has a slightly smaller trunk. Analyzing space, therefore the two Sportage are very good choices in its segment.

SPACE Kia Sportage
front width 145 cm
rear width 137 cm
front height 89-95 cm
rear height 94 cm
Legroom 76 cm
Trunk 540 liters

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi vs: the final price

It is only the last acid test: its price. And here we must recognize that it is difficult to opt for the 2.0 CRDi. It is difficult to compare the two models, because as a business strategy Kia does not sell with same finish. For him Sportage 1.7 CRDi, the best-selling offers its Levels Concept, Drive and Emotion, while for 2.0 CRDi reserves the GT Line. Discard the Spartan Concept 1.7 CRDi, the same as the upper Emotion that may not compensated by separate him and only just over 1,000 euros versus a more interesting GT Line equipped and more powerful. So we would leave the duel between the Drive 1.7 CRDi 2.0 CRDi and the only GT Line. The latter is better equipped and more attractive for a sportier design, but unless it is a priority for you, the teacher believe that choice would that 1.7 CRDi Drive. For 5,000 euros less (Which are already) you have a good car, more than adequate performance and a good equipment as standard8 airbags, climate control, rear camera, cruise control, signal recognition, Stop / Start, light and rain sensors, browser, descent control … For us, this is the Kia Sportage most interesting moment.
