2013 Sportage SX Gets Award From The Car Book

Th 2013 Kia Sportage has parlayed its dynamic styling, advanced technology, and incredible list of safety features into a ‘Best Bet’ award from The Car Book 2013.

The information that is used to come up with the ‘Best Bet’ award is culled from a number of different places, including government and independent sources who rate the car based on the perfromance and safety needs of the average American.

In order to be eligible as a ‘Best Bet,’ cars must have ratings in a number of key categories: safety features, fuel economy, rollover, front and side crash tests, maintenance and repair costs, warranties, insurance costs, and complaints.

The biggest factor in achieveing the accolade is the crash test performance of the Kia car.

The Car Book is updated every year and is THE guide to go to when buying a new Kia AWD SUV, car or truck.

The book lists everything from updated safety ratings, to delaer prices, insurance premiums, and just about everything you need to make an informed decision. The book is published in cooperation with the Center for Auto Safety.

Michael Sprague, executive vice president of marketing and communications, KMA, said that Kia was very proud to see the 2013 Sportage names as a ‘Best Bet’ by The Car Book.

He also told that Kia’s longest running nameplate offered styling, amenities, and performance that are a must for any good compact CUV.

  1. The Sportage is selling well, though not in the States where Kia’s been focusing on a Sorento CUV.
    I have absolutelly no problems with that…

  2. Sportage is a major sales success globally – outselling even the Sorento. Stop focusing entirely on US sales numbers. Globally, the CX-5 has nothing on the Sportage. In January Sportage sold 30k globally to CX-5’s 18k globally. That’s nearly double.
