Facelifted towards the end of 2018, Kia has given the now five year, old fourth generation Sportage another round of revisions, mainly centring on connectivity.

Outfitted with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and acting as display for the reverse camera, the system can however be retro-fitted to existing Ignite and Ignite Plus models at a cost of R6 325. Aside from this, no changes to spec or indeed underneath the Sportage’s bonnet has been made.
