The Kia Sportage is a compact crossover SUV built by the South Korean manufacturer Kia since 1993. The first-generation Kia Sportage was developed with a Mazda Bongo engineering base platform, it shares many mechanical components such as the engine and differentials with the Mazda line of vehicles. This was during Kia's alliance with Ford and Mazda, which involved Ford/Mazda providing technology and Kia providing inexpensive manufacturing facilities for Ford. Early in 1994, an experimental project was attempted between Kia Motors with Daimler-Benz AG. A small number of converted three-door convertibles into two-door pickups, designated GLL200, were produced. Actual production numbers have never been verified, but rumored to be no more than a 25 units assembled. All were test marketed through franchise dealerships in South Korea and Taipei, Taiwan; the collaboration was soon abandoned as Daimler unexpectedly withdrew before a formal agreement was achieved. From 1995 to 1998, the Sportage was built by Karmann in Germany.
It was launched in Asia in July 1993 but European sales did not start until two years later. The Sportage was sold in either a three-door soft-top convertible. Kia developed the wagon in standard length form, but in circa 1996, the company released an extended length version; this stretched model—mainly sold in Asian markets under the name "Sportage Grand", but as the "Grand Wagon"—featured a 305 mm longer body utilizing the same wheelbase, an increase in luggage capacity from 1,570 to 2,220 liters, the relocation of the spare wheel from the tailgate to underneath the floor. Kia offered three Mazda-sourced engines in the Sportage, beginning with the 2.0-liter FE DOHC inline-four gasoline unit producing 95 kW and the 2.0-liter RF inline-four diesel rated at 61 kW. Diesel-engined models were restricted to European markets, as was the more basic single overhead camshaft version of the 2.0-liter FE gasoline inline-four. Delivering 87 kW, this gasoline engine was available from 2000 onwards. In North America, the 2.0-liter FE DOHC engine had optional four-wheel drive.
The 1997 model year Kia Sportage was the world's first production vehicle to be equipped with a knee airbag. This first-generation model sold in low numbers domestically in South Korea, post-Hyundai takeover models were recalled twice for rear wheels dismounting while driving; the first-generation Sportage was discontinued in South Korea in 2002, in North America after the 2002 model year. By 2003, most international markets had discontinued the Sportage range, although it did remain on sale in some developing countries until its second-generation replacement arrived in 2005; the Kia Sportage scored the lowest possible result in the Australian ANCAP crash tests – one star out of five. As well as a failure of the seat belts, the vehicle structure collapsed. After a two-year hiatus, the model-year 2005 Sportage returned, sharing its Elantra-based platform with the 2005 Hyundai Tucson; the Sportage had a 2.0 L straight-4 Diesel engine available in the United Kingdom. Pricing starts at just over US$16,000.
Critics and fans of the original, pre-Hyundai Sportage complain that it is larger than the original Sportage and has none of the earlier off-road capability, the two keys for its success. However, buyers of the second-generation model are to favor the available 173 hp V6, with 178 lb·ft of torque. Overall fit/finish and quality is noticeably improved over the first-generation model. Facelift model of the second generation was introduced in May 2008. Since 2007, it is manufactured at the Žilina Plant in Slovakia. A second facelift was introduced in the UK in early 2009 only a few months after its first facelift; the Sportage was named as one of the most reliable vehicles from the 2009 Consumer Reports reliability survey. The Kia Sportage ranked second in the "20 least expensive 2009 vehicles to insure" list by Insure.com. According to research, the Sportage is one of the least expensive vehicles to insure. Low rates tend to reflect a vehicle's safety; the second-generation Kia Sportage earned a top rating of five stars in crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety judged it acceptable for frontal and side-impact crash and poor strength of its roof in a rollover. The SL series Kia Sportage was released in April 2010 to Asian and European markets, followed by the North and Central American markets in August 2010 for model year 2011. Australian models were released in October 2010, it uses a 2.0-liter Hyundai R diesel engine with 184 hp. A 2.0-liter Theta T-GDI gasoline engine was available. The third generation receives a mid-generational refresh for the 2014 model year, with new headlamps, fog lamps, etc. In China, the third generation, called the Sportage R, was released by Dongfeng Yueda Kia in October 2010, is to be built and marketed alongside the previous generation rather than as a replacement of the existing model; the Sportage won the 2011 Car of the Year in Slovakia and "Truck of the Year" nomination of International Car of the Year. The Kia Sportage was top of the JD Power Survey for 2012, it was the only car in the survey to score five stars across all categories, from mechanical reliability to ownership costs and the dealer experience.
The third-generation Kia Sportage received a "Top Safety Pick" rating from the Insuranc
The Toyota Corolla is a line of subcompact and compact cars manufactured by Toyota. Introduced in 1966, the Corolla was the best-selling car worldwide by 1974 and has been one of the best-selling cars in the world since then. In 1997, the Corolla became the best selling nameplate in the world, surpassing the Volkswagen Beetle. Toyota reached the milestone of 40 million Corollas sold over eleven generations in July 2013; the series has undergone several major redesigns. The name Corolla is part of Toyota's naming tradition of using names derived from the Toyota Crown for sedans, with "corolla" Latin for "small crown"; the Corolla has always been exclusive in Japan to Toyota Corolla Store locations, manufactured in Japan with a twin, called the Toyota Sprinter until 2000. From 2006 to 2018 in Japan and much of the world, the hatchback companion has been called the Toyota Auris. Early models were rear-wheel drive, while models have been front-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive versions have been produced.
The Corolla's traditional competitors have been the Nissan Sunny, introduced the same year as the Corolla in Japan and the Honda Civic and Mitsubishi Lancer. The Corolla's chassis designation code is "E", as described in Toyota's engine codes. Corollas are manufactured in Japan at the original Toyota Takaoka location built in 1966. Various production facilities have been built in Brazil, China, Pakistan, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam and Venezuela. Production has been carried out in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Production in the United States ended in March 2010. Production resumed the following year after the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi plant was opened in November 2011 in Blue Springs, Mississippi. In Japan, the Corolla has always been exclusive to the Japanese retail sales chain called Toyota Corolla Store, established in 1961, known as Toyota Public Store, selling the Toyota Publica. A badge engineered version called the Sprinter was introduced around the same time as the Corolla in Japan, sold through a different Toyota Japan dealership sales channel known since 1966 as Toyota Auto Store.
There have been several models over the years, including the Corolla Ceres hardtop, Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno sports coupés and hatchbacks, the Corolla FX hatchback, which became the Corolla RunX, while the Sprinter became the Allex, with the introduction of the ZZE128 Corolla. The RunX and Allex was replaced by the Auris in 2006. A luxury version of the Auris installed with V6 engines was sold at Japanese Toyota dealerships Toyota Store and Toyopet Store locations as the Blade, discontinued in 2012. A compact MPV named the Corolla Verso has been released in European markets, its Japanese counterpart is the Corolla Spacio, discontinued as of the 10th generation. The Corolla Rumion is sold in the US-market as the Scion xB; the Corolla Matrix, better known just as the Matrix, shares the E120 and E140 platforms, is considered the hatchback/sport wagon counterpart of the North American Corolla sedan, as the European/Australasian Corolla hatchback is not sold there. Toyota combines the sales figures of the Corolla sedan and Matrix.
The Pontiac Vibe, the General Motors badged version of the Matrix, shares the Corolla platform. The Pontiac Vibe was exported from Fremont, California, to the Japanese market where it was sold as the Toyota Voltz. Over many years, there have been rebadged versions of the Corolla, sold by General Motors, including the Holden Nova in Australia during the early 1990s, the Sprinter-based Chevrolet Nova, Chevrolet Prizm, Geo Prizm; the Corolla liftback of Toyota Australia was badged as the T-18. The five-door liftback was sold with the Corolla Seca name in Australia and the nameplate survived on successive five-door models; the Daihatsu Charmant was produced from the E30 to the E70 series. The Tercel was a front wheel drive car, first introduced in 1980 at Japanese Toyota dealerships called Toyota Corolla Store, was called the Corolla Tercel and given its own name in 1984; the Tercel platform was used for the Corolla II hatchback in Japan. The first Corolla generation was introduced in November 1966 with the new 1100 cc K pushrod engine.
The Corolla Sprinter was introduced as the fastback version in 1968, exclusive to a Toyota Japan dealership retail outlet called Toyota Auto Store. In May 1970, the E20 was restyled with a more rounded body; the now mutually exclusive Corolla and Sprinter names were used to differentiate between two different treatments of sheet metal and trim. The Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno names were introduced as the enhanced performance version of the Corolla and Sprinter when a double overhead camshaft version of the 2T engine was introduced in March 1972. In September 1970, the 1400 cc T and 1600 cc 2T OHV engines were added to the range. In Australia, only the 3K powered 2-door KE20 was available as a wagon / panelvan; the brakes were single system with no booster, solid discs on rear drums. Front sway bar but no rear sway bar. Parts are not compatible with models. In NZ, the 4-door KE20 was available. Most models stopped production in July 1974 but the KE26 wagon and van were still marketed in Japan alongside the new 30-series, until production ended in May 1978.
April 1974 brought rounder and heavier Corollas an
The Toyota Yaris is a subcompact car sold by Toyota since 1999, replacing the Starlet and Tercel. Toyota has used the "Yaris" name on export versions of various Japanese-market models, with some markets receiving the same vehicles under the Toyota Echo name through 2005. Most Yaris sedan models marketed in North America from 2015 and Yaris hatchback marketed in the United States from 2019 are based on the Mazda2 and produced for Toyota by Mazda; the name "Yaris" is derived from "Charis", the singular form of Charites, the Greek goddesses of charm and beauty. For the fourth generation model, the "Yaris" name will be used worldwide, including Japan. First generation models were marketed between 1999 and 2005 under the "Yaris" and "Echo" names depending on the market. Hatchback and sedan body variants were offered. Hatchback: versions derive from the Japanese-market Toyota Vitz. Coupe and sedan: versions derive from the Japanese-market Toyota Platz. Second generation models have been marketed since 2005 under the "Yaris" name worldwide.
Hatchback and sedan body styles were offered. The hatchback version was discontinued in late 2013 for Asian markets. Hatchback: versions derive from the Japanese-market Toyota Vitz. Sedan: versions derive from the Japanese-market Toyota Belta. Third generation models have been marketed since 2011 under the "Yaris" name worldwide. Available only as a hatchback, a sedan body style arrived in 2013, but it has not been offered in all countries. Hatchback: European, South African, most North American versions derive from the Japanese-market Toyota Vitz, introduced in early 2011. Most Asian versions from 2013, some Latin American and Caribbean models from 2014 and from early 2018, South African models from early 2018 derive from the Asian-market Toyota Yaris. Sedan: Most Asian versions, Latin American and Caribbean models derive from the Asian-market Toyota Vios, introduced in 2013; some Asian versions from 2017 and most Latin American and Caribbean models from early 2018 derive from the Toyota Yaris.
Third generation hatchback Third generation sedan Starting with 2012 models introduced in late 2011, only the liftback has been sold in the United States, with no version of the sedan being offered. Toyota stated in late 2011 that the sedan would not be sold in Canada, as they were "evaluating that model's future" due to lackluster sales of previous sedans. Production of all United States and Canadian Yaris models shifted from Japan to Toyota Motor Manufacturing France starting in May 2013; the Vios was introduced in the Caribbean in 2013 as the Yaris Sedan. In early 2018, a version of the Asian-market Yaris ATIV replaced the Vios in these markets, being marketed under the Yaris Sedan name. In Mexico, it is sold alongside the more upmarket and costlier Mazda2-based Yaris R; the 2019 model year Yaris Liftback was never introduced in the United States. However, sales of the Canadian 2019 model are continuing indefinitely. In 2014, Mazda de México Vehicle Operation began production of the Mazda2 in Salamanca, Guanajuato for various North and South American markets.
At the 2015 New York International Auto Show in April of that year, it was announced that this plant would produce a version of the Mazda2 for Toyota with minor styling changes, with the vehicle to be sold in Mexico as the Yaris, in the United States as the Scion iA, in Canada as the Yaris sedan. In July 2015, Toyota confirmed that the car would be sold in Mexico as the Yaris R. After the phase-out of the Scion marque in the United States, the car was renamed as the Toyota Yaris iA from August 2016 for the 2017 model year. For the 2019 model year, it was renamed again as the Yaris sedan in the United States, receiving a minor facelift with a new grille insert and trim changes. Unlike the previous models, which offered only exterior colors and a choice between 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions as factory options, both the United States and Canadian 2019 Yaris sedans are offered in L, LE and XLE trims with a wider variety of interior and exterior options. A new Mazda-built Yaris hatchback—a rebadged Mazda2 with a front fascia similar to that of the Yaris sedan—will make its debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show in April of that year and replace the Yaris Liftback in the United States for the 2020 model year.
Its official images were revealed on 1 April 2019. The United States market 2020 Yaris hatchback is offered in XLE trims. Whether this vehicle will replace the XP130 in Canada has not been confirmed. Toyota Yaris Official Website
