HiI am considering purchasing a new 2011 sportage and as i need to park it in my garage i have been trying to find out the width of the car excluding the mirrors.
I phoned a few dealers but none seem to have a clue and on line it only gives you the overall width.
I would be grateful if anyone can help.
I am trying to decide between the new VW Tiguan or the Kia Sportage are you happy with the Sportage.
Thanks

Best info on width is 1855mm. Difficult to be totally accurate but within a couple of mm.
I had same choice Tiguan or Sportage, they both appear to be very good cars, I guess it comes down to value for money and, on this basis, I opted for the Sportage. Although VW is a very good brand and German build quality is excellent, I personally think Kia is really making progress and the build quality is now as good. Just look at the Kia Ceed's history and awards!

Hi thanks for the reply.1855mm is all i could i find as a measurement on Kia's website but i presume this is overall width without the mirrors folded back.
Most car manufacturers show a diagram of the vehicle with all the various measurements but all i can find is just the measurement of 1855mm.

Hi, I also wandered about the width before purchase as I was unsure about parking in my garage. My garage door is 2.1m wide and when I drive in I have to close the mirrors or it would hit so I think the 1855mm they quote on the website is with the mirrors folded back but I can run a tape measure across the car tomorrow to be exact if you likeEdited by: gwilty

Attached is a scan of my spec sheet.


Both on the front and rear image the measurment says 1855mm...



However on the front image the opened mirrors look wider than the body, but on the rear image they do now....



Makes me think? Can it be?



I think the best solution is to drive the test vehicle to your house and try it in, with an onlooker just in case



How do you post images aaarrgghhhh!!!????
