I think if it is the 138 HP model it does have the VGT.

According to Parker's the early 'Mk2 Sportage' diesels had 111BHP (Euro III). Sometime around 2006, the engines were revised to 138 BHP (Euro IV) and I'm fairly sure that's when the Variable Geometry Turbo was fitted (and I think the 6 speed manual transmission). The last version of the 'Mk2' had a further power boost to 147 BHP and I believe that a double overhead camshaft was fitted with that model. For a 5 year production span there were a lot of revisions!
