KIA SPORTAGE AWD PLAT­INUM

Herald Sun - Motoring - - HEAD TO HEAD -

Gets more gear, with larger 19-inch wheels and sweet­en­ers such as park as­sist, auto high beam, wire­less phone charg­ing, An­droid Auto (Ap­ple CarPlay is still un­der ne­go­ti­a­tion) and power tail­gate that opens when you stand next to it. War­ranty is seven years and ser­vice is cheaper at $1152 for three years/45,000km. Comes with all the lat­est driver aids in­clud­ing for­ward col­li­sion warn­ing with au­ton­o­mous emer­gency brak­ing, as well as blind spot and lane de­par­ture warn­ings, re­vers­ing cam­era plus front and rear sen­sors. Gets five stars from ANCAP. Points de­ducted for a mar­ginal re­sult for lower leg pro­tec­tion.

VER­DICT The Honda is spa­cious but the Sportage costs less, is cheaper to ser­vice and has a more gen­er­ous war­ranty.
