General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Kia Sportage LX (2014)

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

2.Has fully independent suspension
Kia Sportage LX (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

3.Has a diesel engine
Kia Sportage LX (2014)

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.

4. less CO2 emissions

139g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
