Kia Sportage Again Named `Best Buy in Four-Wheel Drive'

29 July 1998

Kia Sportage Again Named `Best Buy in Four-Wheel Drive' by Four Wheeler Magazine
    IRVINE, Calif., July 29 -- For the third year in a row, the
Kia Sportage was selected as one of Four Wheeler magazine's "10 Best Buys in
Four-Wheel Drive."  Based on an extensive review of sub-compact, four-door
sport-utility vehicles, Four Wheeler chose the Sportage as its overall winner
and considered it a better buy than Toyota RAV4, Chevy Tracker, Suzuki
Sidekick and Sidekick Sport JX.
    Four Wheeler praised the Sportage for having the beefiest engine in the
class, an impressive cargo area and an available limited-slip differential.
Other features recognized by the magazine were the added wheelbase on the
Sportage, its smoother on-pavement ride and flexier rear suspension.
    Since its introduction in 1995, the Sportage has received many honors,
including a 1997 and 1998 "Best Overall Value of the Year" from IntelliChoice,
a "Best Buy" among compact sport-utility vehicles from the Men's Journal 1997
Buyer's Guide and the "Best of What's New" in 1995 from Popular Science.
    Kia Motors America is the U.S. sales, marketing and service arm of Kia
Motors Corp. of Seoul, South Korea.
