Kia Sportage 2023 is a popular compact SUV manufactured by the South Korean automaker Kia since 1993. The first generation of the KIA Sportage was introduced in the early 2000s and was a relatively popular low-budget SUV in Pakistan. However, the second generation launched in 2006 was not a hit due to poor safety ratings and unappealing features.
When KIA ended its joint venture with Dewan Mushtaq Group and left Pakistan, the second generation Sportage also left the market. The third generation of the Sportage was launched globally in 2010, with better safety features and an improved body structure.
The fourth generation KIA Sportage made a comeback in Pakistan in August 2019, and since then, it has become a hot-selling SUV in the country. Although it has a history in Pakistan, it was reintroduced in two variants: All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Front Wheel Drive (FWD). Later, in June 2020, KIA Pakistan added the Sportage Alpha as a third variant to the lineup. The fourth generation of the KIA Sportage has been a huge success in Pakistan.
