Kia has dropped 10 of the least popular variants of its Sportage to create a “simplified” line-up for its best-selling model.

The new line-up now totals 16 versions, due to the loss of variants including KX-trim models of 2 to 5, as well as GT-Line Edition models, which sat near the top of the range.

A Kia spokesman said these versions “were each a small percentage of the sales mix”, so a decision to “rationalise” the range had been taken “for ease of understanding for customers”.

KX models formed the bulk of the four-wheel drive line-up for the Sportage, so losing them has significantly reduced the number of AWD versions on sale. However, GT-Line models still come available with two driven axles.

Andy Murray drops out of top 20 in tennis world rankings

  Andy Murray drops out of top 20 in tennis world rankings British number one Andy Murray has dropped out of the top 20 ATP world rankings for the first time in ten years, according to a report on Sky Sports. Murray underwent hip surgery after he pulled out of this year’s Australian Open and is now starting his long road to recovery. Murray has not played a competitive tennis match since his shock exit from Wimbledon last summer. However, the 30-year-old is confident that he can return to action better than ever and he has already begun his rehabilitation process. Murray has been a constant figure in the top 20 since 2008 and we could have a new world number one very soon as Roger Federer aims to create history. Federer is participating in the Rotterdam tournament and if he reaches the semi-final, then he will overtake Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the number one position. If the Swiss does manage to become the world number one, then he will be the oldest ever player to do so. Murray is expected to be fit in time for the Queens Championships in the summer alongside Nadal. Both players have signed up for the tournament, which is well known for being a warm-up for Wimbledon.

The Sportage remains Kia’s top-selling model in the UK. It accounted for 45% of demand here in 2017, with 40,077 of them sold. This beat 2016’s results, when sales for the Nissan Qashqai rival totalled 39,700 – equating to 43% of Kia’s UK sales.

The growth mirrors Kia’s wider sales in the UK, where it grew its market share to 3.75% – up from 3.32% in 2016. The brand’s second best-selling model, the larger Sorento, is a rival to the Skoda Kodiaq, meaning Kia’s most popular cars are both SUVs.

Kia added the new Stonic small SUV to showrooms during the second half of 2017 as part of its ongoing line-up expansion. The Nissan Juke rival enters one of Europe's fastest-growing segments and as such is predicted to become Kia's number one UK seller.

At the other end of its line-up, the Rio and Venga hatchbacks sell in much smaller numbers. Last year, 8470 Rios were sold in the UK, while the Venga accounted for 6130 sales.

Kia has also recently streamlined the ranges of the two aforementioned hatchbacks, removing their diesel versions in the face of shrinking demand for small oil-burners.
