About the Car

2023 Kia Sportage ‘Mud Mode’

Kia UK has created a trio of distinctive Sportage models, each inspired by the ‘Terrain Mode’ system included as standard on all-wheel drive (AWD) hybrid models. You can find more visual details of the 2023 Kia Sportage ‘Mud Mode’ gallery by scrolling up.

The one-off Sportage ‘Mud Mode’, ‘Snow Mode’ and ‘Sand Mode’ each show the potential of the Sportage to fit into a range of different active lifestyles, at all times of the year.

Terrain Mode aids traction, stability and control on mud, snow and sand, with dedicated driving modes for each. The system makes AWD versions of Kia’s best-selling SUV highly capable across a range of low-grip surfaces.

Controlled using the Terrain Mode dial on the centre console, drivers can choose between ‘Mud’, ‘Snow’ and ‘Sand’ modes. The system automatically optimises the drivetrain to best suit each scenario, adjusting engine torque output and distribution, as well as stability control characteristics. ‘Terrain Mode’ also adjusts shift timings for the hybrid’s six-speed automatic transmission to suit different surfaces.

Each model has been equipped with official Kia accessories, suggesting how owners could choose to customise their own cars. Each combination of parts is tailored to reflect the three modes available through the ‘Terrain Mode’ system.

‘Mud Mode’

Not for those who want to be labelled an unadventurous stick-in-the-mud, the ‘Mud Mode’ Sportage provides greater traction and control for drivers tackling muddy tracks and fields. It’s the ideal solution for active pursuits in the British countryside, for rural drivers, or for visitors to rain-soaked festival fields and county shows.

Activating ‘Mud Mode’ helps maintain momentum in the muck. To achieve this, the wheels are driven based on a slightly delayed shift pattern, with smoother application of engine torque throughout the AWD system, and stronger braking force applied via the TCS.

The ‘Mud Mode’ Sportage is matched with Kia’s pro bike carrier and steel crossbars, with side steps to load and unload a mountain bike more easily. Like the ‘Snow Mode’ car, it also includes elements to protect the car from mud, including all-round mudflaps and all-weather mats for inside the cabin. It also features a bumper flap which sits over the flat boot lip, giving owners an informal, easily cleaned seat at the back of the car – or a shield against muddy pawprints. An extended boot liner means more of the interior remains weather-proofed when carrying mud-spattered outdoor gear or clothing.

The all-new Kia Sportage

The all-new Sportage is Kia’s best-selling car in the UK, with a wide range covering most drivers’ needs. The fifth-generation Sportage, launched earlier this year, is available with electrified powertrains for the first time in its history, and is offered as standard with Kia’s seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
