In with the new

Despite sharing some of its styling cues with some other cars out there, the overall design of the Sportage has a cohesive feel to it. It looks purposeful and sporty and the proportions are just about spot on - the edgy styling cues give it a rather sharp look. The Sportage actually looks more contemporary and dare I say, more handsome than its Hyundai Tucson cousin.

Underneath the skin, the Sportage utilizes the same underpinnings as the Hyundai Tucson which means an electro hydraulic power steering system, MacPherson strut front suspension and a sophisticated multi-link set up at the rear.

To match its sporty looks, the Sportage's chassis has been set up to be sportier than the Tucson's which means better body control in the corners, a well weighted and accurate steering and a noticeably firmer ride. The 18-inch low profile tyres fitted on SX trim models obviously don't help in the ride department.

The helm is accurate and offers responses that are faithful to the driver's inputs but it lacks outright feel and feedback - you can hardly feel it in the palm of your hands when the front wheels struggle for grip. Push the relatively tall Sportage into a corner, the front will struggle for grip early and it'll expectedly understeer and run wide - this isn't a performance-oriented model after all. ESP is a standard feature on the Sportage - it'll be the indispensible guardian should you overcook your own driving or the Sportage's dynamic limits.

True to its crossover nature, the Sportage is offered in front-wheel drive form for our local market. This not only saves weight but aids fuel efficiency as well. Oddly though, the Sportage comes with a hill descent control system, which is normally found in more hardcore 4x4 models and is an electronic aid to moderate speed when going down a slippery and steep unpaved slope.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
