Richard Craythorne, General Manager at Wessex Garages, with the current Sportage model.

CARDIFF motorists keen to test drive Kia’s all-new fourth-generation Sportage can do so next month (February, 2016) by popping along to Castell Coch in Tongwynlais.

We will be taking the newly released SUV to Castell Coch on Friday, February 5 from 3pm until 8pm for people to have a closer look and take for a test drive.

Richard Craythorne, our General Manager at the dealership on Penarth Road, explained: “We’re very excited to be hosting a ride and drive event at Castell Coch. It is a stunning fairy-tale castle and will make a great location for people to test drive the brand new Sportage.

“Kia’s new features added to the Sportage make it the most modern, innovative and high-tech car in its class. The new Sportage is bold in its styling and characterised by its sportier and muscular look. The exterior design is unmistakably Kia and undeniably appealing.

“It is also the safest Sportage yet, with a stronger body and a range of new active safety technologies including Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Autonomous Emergency Braking. In performance terms, the all-new Sportage delivers a smoother, more refined ride and greater handling agility.

“For the first time, the Sportage now also comes in a new ‘GT Line’ specification. Delivering all the versatility of the standard Sportage, it is designed to appeal to those seeking an even sportier appearance and driving experience.”

The vehicle’s new navigation system comes with Kia’s connected services powered by TomTom Live Services and gives reliable route guidance.

Kia’s Connected Services provide the driver with real time traffic updates, weather forecasts, a search function to find places of interest and speed camera alerts.

It also comes with a new wireless charger for mobile devices, enabling users to charge their phone or tablet without a wire connection. The system will display the phone’s charging condition on the instrument cluster.

Richard added: “The SUV has plenty of space for the whole family, as well as a range of storage solutions and a high boot capacity for the transport of luggage. Both the driver and passengers are treated to extra space in the all-new Sportage and also enhanced seating comfort.

“We are hoping to chat to a few families on the day atCastell Coch to show them the benefits and comforts of this new vehicle.”

Representatives from Wessex Garages will be at Castell Coch on Friday, February 5 from 3pm until 8pm with the new Kia Sportage.
