    Hello, everyone.

    We had chance to test drive 2019 Kia Sportage.

    It is a facelift version of 2018 year model. With upgraded powertrain, design and safety features, does it have an edge in

    compact SUV market? Let's find out!

    It looks like it was done in Korea. I don't think all the features will reach our shores but I do hope the AWD does.

    I think this has been answered, no AWD version. Although, based on the spec sheet, looks like AC Ind. is consistent with the model versions abroad. They do not cannibalize features to fit the country.

    Looking to get my second CUV.

    Does the Sportage look like a good over-all choice?

    Without the *standard* technology package available in other countries, KIA vehicles in the Philippines will never be a good choice.

    Let us hope KIA Philippines will bring in the latest version of KIA Sportage without *cannibalizing* the features made available abroad.

    Until AC Industrials brings out their other new models, everything is just speculation. Id rather reserve judgement when those models are finally out in the market.

    "Standard" Technology package includes:
    Blind Spot Monitoring
    Rear Cross Traffic Alert
    Lane Departure Warning (includes Lane Keep Assist)
    Collision Mitigation System (car itself will apply brakes even if the driver does not press on the brakes)
    Adaptive Cruise Control (KIA vehicle automatically adapts cruise control speed according to the vehicle in front)
    Hill Start Assist
    Hill Hold Control
    Adaptive HeadLight (whether you are making a curve or on high beams or not)

    etc. etc.

    For me those tech package features are the most important for a safer driving experience.
