Hi!

Im a newbie to this forum.

Could do with some advise?? Test drove a sportage 1.7CRDi '1'
We def want a sportage '2' but what to do???!! 1.7CRDi or 2.0CRDi KX-2??

Im rubbish with techno stuff but is it really worth the extra money going for the 2.0?? Will I just pay soo much more on diesel??

Hope u guys can help??

Not had a 4 wheel drive before. As you can probably guess!! LOL!!
Is it much more superior in snow etc??

Fuel consumption is the other factor??

I had the same issue. In the end i went for the 1.7 2wd. I have survived this long without 4wd.


In my circumstances i could not justify the extra road tax/insurance.

I have had 4 wheel drives for 10 years now and to be honest i have never needed it in earnest but it is a bit more confidence inspiring.Difference in insurance and service quotes seems negligable but they do use a bit more fuel.

My main reason was also,for the price of the 2.0 4wd i got the kx3 1.7 which has pretty much everything compared to the standard 2.0.


I had to decide if i really needed 4wd versus a higher spec kx3 1.7
