This is the Kia Sportage JBL Black Edition – a new distinctive edition edition of the latest edition of Mia’s mid-dimensions SUV. It’s available to purchase now, with price ranges beginning from £28,545.

Improvements more than the normal Sportage involve black seventeen-inch alloy wheels, body-colored doorway handles, new front and rear skid plates, a new radiator grille and gloss black roof rails. The distinctive edition product is also exclusively available in Phantom black metallic paint, although its interior is trimmed in black leather-based upholstery.

The JBL Black Edition is dependent on the Sportage “3,” which implies it will get a first rate selection of normal devices, which include front and rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, LED headlamps and a 360-degree parking camera. Purchasers also get an 8-inch infotainment program, heated front and rear seats and a heated steering wheel.

Kia has added an 8-speaker JBL stereo program, which features a subwoofer, a standalone amplifier and a new front centre speaker for the dash. Purchasers also get a cost-free wireless JBL speaker provided in the price.

There are two engines available in the Sportage JBL Black Edition. The range opens with a turbocharged one.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol motor, which develops 174bhp and 265Nm of torque. The unit provides a 0–62mph time of 8.nine seconds and claimed WLTP fuel economic climate figures of 35.3mpg.

Higher than that sits a one.6-litre 4-cylinder diesel motor, equipped with a 48-volt gentle-hybrid program. The powertrain has an output of 134bhp and 320Nm of torque – and although its 0–62mph time is slower than the petrol models at ten.8 seconds, fuel economic climate is vastly improved with claimed WLTP figures of fifty.4mpg.

The two powertrains are mated to a six-pace guide gearbox as normal, although the two models can be experienced with a seven-pace dual-clutch automatic for an more £1,215.
