KIA has added sat-nav to three of its line-up for 2012. The sat-navs will be standard on the top-spec versions of the Sportage and Sorento, with the Optima due to get its system by July.
The new equipment brings a $990 price rise for the Platinum versions. This lifts the Sportage to $37,710* for the petrol and $40,710 for the diesel and takes the Sorento to $50,180. The satnav-equipped Optima will be $37,980. The system will also be available as a $1500 option in the Sportage and Sorento SLI models.
The systems will have a 6.5-inch screen for Sorento and 7-inch for Sportage and Optima with live traffic updates.
Maps will be updated free after the first 12 months and again a year later – a service Kia says is the first for any brand in Australia. * Call Trinity Kia for drive-away prices on 4050 5000.
