Anonim

The fourth generation KiSportage appeared in 2015. Now everyone is used to the headlights raised above the radiator grill, and five years ago the Sportage looked too avant-garde. Especially for a massive crossover. And even more so - against the background of a conservative predecessor and the same boring competitors. Therefore, the design of the model was at best discreetly silent

However, the only thing KiSportage has been doing on the Russian market since 2016 is growth. In the first year of sales, it became the twentieth in the list of the best-selling cars in the country (19,003 cars sold), in 2017 - the nineteenth (24,611 units), in 2018 - the fourteenth (32,667 units), and in 2019 - twelfth (34,370 copies)! Despite the strange design and unbeatable ToyotRAV4. But is the Sportage still relevant or is it time for stable growth to give way to a quiet fade? Let's look at the example of a maximally packed car in the Premium configuration for 2,294,900 rubles.

Interior

Of all the leaders of the class, KiSportage is the oldest right now. VW Tiguan came out a year later, and the RAV4, even though it debuted two years ago, is quite fresh for the Russian market - and right now it is creating uniform indecency in the sales charts. And I must admit that in the cabin, both competitors are much more modern than the Sportage. At least due to the fact that you will not find such a button abundance in any of them.

Despite the outdated architecture, the Sportage's finishing materials are the same as those of the bulk of competitors: soft top, hard bottom. The test car drove about 17 thousand kilometers, but no suspicious squeaks and crickets have appeared yet - this is good. However, the steering wheel is already shiny, as in car sharing, and the leather on the left side of the driver's seat cushion is noticeably wrinkled

And more about the seats. They have no pretensions, but nothing sticks out of them in the back, the rollers don't press, and you don't have to tighten your legs. In short, normal, regular seats. However, only the two most expensive versions of the Sportage have a 10-way electric drive for the driver's seat. On most other electrical modifications, there will only be lumbar support adjustment, and on the base Classic, the roller is not adjustable at all

The steering wheel, of course, is adjustable both in reach and in angle of inclination. Traditionally for "Koreans" the range is very wide. Therefore, getting comfortable behind the wheel of the Sportage is much easier than remembering the location of all the buttons on the center console

Except for the engine start button, only under the screen of the multimedia system - 28 keys! Six more are behind the gear selector, ten are on the steering wheel and five are to the left of the steering wheel. Even the RAV4, which is far from the standard in terms of ergonomics (although it got better after the generation change), has less. I admit that many will like this abundance - if only out of a sense of contradiction to the new sensory fashion. But in a week of the test, I could not get used to it until the end

Tidying is also a retrograde dream. Unpretentious scales with a clear line, warm and lamp hands, as well as a large, 4.2-inch on-board computer screen. You cannot expand a navigation map for its entire area, but data on the range and fuel consumption can be obtained simultaneously. Many modern machines do not have such a seemingly elementary function

Media is old, but not useless. The diagonal of the screen is 8 inches, the sensitivity and performance are excellent. The same as the functionality: there is navigation with data on speed limits, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Since January, the Sportage entertainment systems have been pumped up, adding the voice assistant Alice and Yandex.Navigator to them, but they were not yet on the test car

Practicality

The Korean crossover is one of the most compact in its class. The Volkswagen Tiguan is a millimeter longer, and the RAV4 even surpasses it by as much as twenty centimeters! At the same time, the size of the wheelbase of the Sportage is almost the same as that of the opponents: only seven millimeters less than that of the Tiguan, and two centimeters shorter than that of Toyota. Moreover, the distance between the axles of the "Korean" is the same as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander, which is noticeably longer than the Sportage.

The main beneficiaries of the large wheelbase are the second row passengers. There is really enough space in all respects.Is that the ceiling because of the panoramic roof hangs low, but this "problem" will be only in one version - the most expensive

Three of us can get in behind without any problems, and the central tunnel does not interfere: it is low and wide. However, the middle part of the pillow protrudes noticeably, so the third passenger will sit closer to the ceiling

The backrests of the KiSportage rear seats are adjustable in tilt angle in all trim levels. But the longitudinal adjustment of the sofa, like Tiguan, is not

The trunk does not cause absolutely no enthusiasm. The volume depends on the type of spare tire: for cars with a stowaway, it is 491 liters, and for cars with a full-size wheel, as we have on the test, it is 461 liters. The latter, of course, will only be for top-end modifications

Despite its modest size, the cargo compartment of the crossover easily accommodates two large suitcases, around which there is still space for small things. Simply put, the Sportage will cope with household duties no worse than the RAV4, which has a much larger trunk - 580 liters

Alas, the compartment itself is rather unsophisticated. No removable lights, no handles for folding the second row seats. But in the lower part there is a place for the curtain. If you have to bring something very big to Sportage, then you don't have to rack your brains about where to put it

The maximum volume of the trunk with the backs of the second row seats folded is 1455 liters. The floor is almost level. However, folding the backrests out of the trunk is unrealistic: they are lowered by levers at the ends of the sofa cushion. The same ones that are responsible for adjusting the tilt

Technique and reliability

The age of the Sportage is also given by the aggregate base. If the current Tiguan and RAV4 moved to modern modular platforms, then the Korean crossover was made on the basis of the previous generation model. Yes, the stiffness of the body has grown almost one and a half times, the characteristics of the springs and shock absorbers have changed, the geometry of the suspension has changed, but there are still no radical differences from the third generation model.

The suspension scheme is traditional for this class: MacPherson strut front, multi-link rear. Passive shock absorbers. Disc brakes in a circle, but front discs of larger diameter are put on two top-end configurations

All-wheel drive also migrated to the Sportage from its predecessor. It is implemented using a Magn multi-plate clutch in the rear wheel drive. It can be forcibly blocked at speeds up to 30 kilometers per hour

Initially, the crossover engine range consisted of a pair of gasoline units - an aspirated 2.0 and a turbocharged 1.6 - as well as a two-liter diesel engine with 185 horsepower. However, the supercharged engine was not in demand, so during restyling it was replaced with an atmospheric 2.4, and the diesel engine was removed from the range altogether: such cars were indecently expensive. Although the engine itself is excellent and is still installed on the soplatform Hyundai Tucson

Now the Ki crossover is offered with a 150-horsepower 2.0 and 184-horsepower 2.4. The first gets along with both a six-speed "mechanics" and a six-speed "automatic". It is installed on both front and all-wheel drive vehicles. The top unit can only be found on four-wheel drive two-pedal cars

The declared clearance of the Korean crossover is 182 millimeters. The edge of the front bumper lies exactly on the 26-centimeter rung of the measuring ladder, but the elastic, which is a few centimeters behind, hangs noticeably lower

The main complaint about the reliability of KiSportage was associated with the two-liter engine: if not everyone, then many, know about the bad-ass and the falling catalyst. However, the Koreans have modified the engine, and now both engines, under normal operation and proper maintenance, should drive 300,000 kilometers without any problems

Knocking on the steering rack is a massive problem, although not catastrophic. The problem is in the damper of the electric booster. Fortunately, it can be repaired without any special difficulties: replacement is not necessary. However, if you run the problem, you will have to change the entire rail, and this pleasure is very expensive

Traditionally, for cars of Asian brands, KiSportage is not the strongest paintwork. You can avoid some of the problems by choosing a car painted in "metallic": it is stronger and does not fade so quickly

Riding

In full measure, the ordinary Sportage manifests itself on the go. He sat down, drove from point "A" to point "B", left - and completely forgot how it was. What I ate, what I listened to the radio …

Acceleration in any of the control electronics modes is smooth and completely devoid of emotions. However, in absolute terms, everything is not bad - 9.6 seconds to a hundred (cars with 2.0 go two seconds slower). Simply put, you are unlikely to become a thunderstorm in the area, but you will not pull out your hair from a constant lack of traction.

And do not expect to provoke the Sportage with a "feisty" sport mode: the accelerator becomes just a little sharper, and the gearbox, without too much enthusiasm, allows the motor to spin almost to a cutoff. But once you release the gas pedal a little in the process, the gear still shifts up. So much for all the "sport".

However, I fully admit the thought that among the readers of this text there are those who do not like it when the gears are stuck with a bump, the box switches down at any opportunity, and always waits until the tachometer needle rests against the cutoff. People like this should like the Sportage's transmission settings: smooth, sedate, much more focused on fuel economy than dynamic driving - a torque converter classic!

In sports mode, by the way, the steering wheel is also a little heavier, trying to convince the driver that active driving is generally welcome here. But it is the electric booster settings that are the worst thing in the handling of the crossover. Everything is too artificial and implausible. But the chassis itself is right on top!

The smoothness of the ride, including on the top 19-inch wheels, is good: small things are filtered successfully, you can brake in front of the sunbeds without much zeal, and on sharp irregularities the Sportage does not lose face. However, he sometimes misses punches - just like almost any of the competitors. Therefore, gravel roads, asphalt laid directly on the ground and rough concrete should not cause problems.

It was a surprise that the "Korean" also drives well! There is a short rail (less than three revolutions from lock to lock), small rolls, and there is practically no boring front-wheel drive sliding onto the outer trajectory. Moreover, in winter it is quite possible to misbehave on the Sportage: under the gas at the exit from the corner, the Ki crossover actively works with the rear wheels, and does not fall out, like, for example, ToyotRAV4 with its cunning all-wheel drive with a pair of clutches at the rear.

And the stabilization system of the "Korean" is turned off almost completely: the electronics will intervene only when the driver, the car, or both at the same time run out of possibilities.

Frankly, you don't expect this kind of character from the average mid-size family crossover. In uncharacteristic conditions for such cars, the Sportage rides about the same as the Tiguan, but the "German" has a better steering wheel and more torque from below - thanks to the turbo engine. But the remaining 90 percent of classmates, including even the once gambling Subaru Forester, drive completely front-wheel drive and toothless.

In normal, day-to-day driving, the KiSportage is as clear and neutral as Switzerland. In other words, normal. There is a little lack of silence in the cabin: the external rumble penetrates inside quite noticeably, although there are no frank breakdowns in the Shumka.

Finally, all "jeep" Sportage is limited to a relatively problem-free exit from a snowdrift near the house and climbing the curbs. The overhangs are long, the ground clearance is slightly higher than that of golf-class cars, but the forced locking of the clutch makes life a little easier. For example, when you need to start off on an icy rise.

The clutch is quite hardy - you can slip in a snowdrift. There is an imitation of interwheel locks with the help of brakes, but it works with a delay, increasing the risk of burrowing, and in general requires decisive action from the driver. It is necessary to press on the gas immediately strongly - only in this way the electronics understands that it is time to get involved in work. On the same Tiguan, the imitations of locks are set up better.

Equipment

Sportage, traditionally for Kia, is offered only in fixed trim levels. But there are eight of them at once. The base one is called Classic. Such a car will cost 1,424,900 rubles - It will have steering wheel height and reach, remote central locking, air conditioning, driver's seat height adjustment, audio system with six speakers and Bluetooth, as well as 16-inch wheels. And it will be a car with a 150-horsepower engine, "mechanics" and front-wheel drive.

The most affordable Sportage with "automatic" costs 1,544,900 rubles… The package is called Classic "Warm Options", and it differs from the "base" by heated front seats, a windshield in the wipers rest area, and side mirrors - just imagine, in the initial version they do not heat up. A four-wheel drive car with the same equipment will cost 40,000 rubles more.

The next Comfort configuration (from 1,589,900 rubles) added dual-zone climate control, power adjustment of the driver's seat lumbar support, automatic front power windows, heated steering wheel and rear seats, rain sensor, cruise control and rear parking sensors.

Luxe version (from 1 679 900 rubles) has a light sensor, self-dimming salon mirror, multimedia with a seven-inch screen, a rear-view camera and roof rails. A slightly more pumped-up Luxe + (from 1,739,900 rubles) is not only equipped with fully diode headlights, keyless entry and eight-inch multimedia, but is also the starting point for the 2.4 engine (from 1 929 900 rubles).

In the complete set Prestige (from 1 944 900 rubles for 2.0 and from 2 054 900 rubles for 2.4) becomes very expensive and rich: leather seats, LED lights and foglights, an electronic handbrake with Autohold function and parking sensors in a circle. The top Premium is only available with a 2.4 engine and costs 2 294 900 rubles… Its key features are: adaptive crisis control, LED interior suspension, a rich set of safety systems, 19-inch wheels and a panoramic roof.

There is also a "sporty" modification of the GT Line with a special interior and exterior trim. She is standing 2 164 900 rubles and in terms of equipment it is somewhere between Prestige and Premium.

Competitors

Volkswagen Tiguan

Не считаться с лидером класса невозможно. У Тигуана одна из богатейших в сегменте моторных гамм, хотя она состоит только из «любимых» россиянами турбомоторов. Но, глядя на показатели продаж, кавычки, кажется, можно уже и убрать. Кроссовер VW - самый динамичный и самый азартный в классе, у него большой багажник и отличное оснащение. Разве что он не самый дешёвый: цены начинаются с 1 619 000 рублей" style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

Volkswagen Tiguan It is impossible not to reckon with the class leader. Tiguan has one of the richest motor ranges in the segment, although it consists only of turbo engines “beloved” by Russians. But looking at the sales figures, it seems that the quotes can already be removed. The VW crossover is the most dynamic and most exciting in the class, it has a large trunk and excellent equipment. Unless it is the cheapest: prices start from 1,619,000 rubles

Nissan X-Trail

Нестареющая японская классика. Атмосферные двигатели, вариаторы, простор в салоне… Есть ещё дизель, но такой Nissan X-Trail почему-то может быть только с механической коробкой передач, хотя и полноприводным. Всем желающим купить японский кроссовер придётся расстаться минимум с 1 630 000 рублей. Топовая машина стоит 2 170 000 рублей" style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

Nissan X-Trail Timeless Japanese classic. Aspirated engines, variators, spaciousness in the cabin … There is also a diesel engine, but for some reason such a Nissan X-Trail can only be with a manual transmission, albeit an all-wheel drive one. Everyone who wants to buy a Japanese crossover will have to part with at least 1,630,000 rubles. The top car costs 2,170,000 rubles

conclusions

The whole week that I drove this car, I did not leave this feeling: the Koreans made a Sportage, looked at it, rode and were stunned by how ordinary it turned out. Nothing sticks out anywhere, does not hurt the eye. Even a little scary … So they sat down, thought and drew a very extravagant appearance for the crossover.

And here they were also right! The first wave of discussions on this matter quickly subsided, the second did not begin, and the popularity of Sportage only suggests that while everyone is chasing dynamics, handling and manufacturability, people need ordinary cars. After all, there is actually nothing wrong with ordinary cars.
