SUV buyers are spoiled for choice, as Luke Viviers-Viljoen found out after having his doubts about all that mud on a Trailblazer’s wheels, (Page 3), while eight new Kia Sportage models have arrived in Pietermaritzburg after a seven-country tour.
Kia Pietermaritzburg last Friday launched eight new models of the new Sportage to great interest in town. As part of the national launch, the new Sportage last week travelled over 10 000 km through seven countries in southern Africa (inset) and before that, it set a record with a 3 000-plus kilometre test drive across South Africa, said David Sieff, marketing director of KIA Motors South Africa. Prices for the sport ute start at just under R370 k, but speak to the staff at Kia for good trade-ins. They are (from left) sales executives Puben Kannie and Amy Hylton, general manager Shan van Lelieveld, sales manager Latasha Rajhununan and workshop manager Terrence Moodley.
