Thrilling news... the Kia Sportage is now available with a Care-3 Servicing Package. This, Kia says, offers retail customers “fixed cost, inflation-proof, servicing for the first three or five years”. Told you it was exciting. And guess what? Kia says they only use genuine manufacturer parts and specified oils. How thrilling. No Mondeo exhausts or Asda Olive Oil, then. Kia's Care-3 Package costs from £299 including VAT - depending on your engine and annual mileage. Five year cover starts from £549 including VAT. But there is more thrilling news. The package covers the car rather than its owner, so it can be transferred with any future sale. What a tremendous incentive for a potential buyer. Still excited, then?The Kia Sportage comes in various tantalising forms so some versions have two-wheel- drive and some four. Power comes courtesy of petrol and diesel engines that produce between 114 and 181bhp. The race to 62mph, therefore, takes between 11.6 and 9.4 seconds. That is respectable. So too is fuel consumption. The most efficient diesel trim averages 55.4mpg and the thirstiest petrol returns a tolerable 37.2mpg. And guess what? This mile-muncher is loaded with thrilling technology. Some trims, you see, have a reversing camera, touch-screen satellite navigation, and steer themselves automatically into parallel parking bays. That is really exciting. All this is backed-up by an industry leading seven year warranty. Kia Sportage prices range from £17,300 to £28,500. Excited?
