Explore All Things Sportage with this New App August 7th, 2012

If you’re a past, current or potential Kia Sportage owner who enjoys exploring car info interactively then you’ll love our new Kia Sportage iPad app. It’s developed by the same award winning app team that brought you the Picanto and Rio iPad apps.

First Impressions

When we fired up this app on our iPad, we were wondering if our digital design team could top themselves again. After all, they set a high standard with the Kia Rio app, which recently received the highly sought-after “best of the best” award in the communication design category from the Red Dot Design Awards, one of the largest and most-acclaimed international design competitions.

At a quick glance you might dismiss this app as a standard e-publication style brochure, but once you start navigating the content, you’d be surprised at the immersiveness of the interactivity. The Sportage iPad app answers virtually all frequently asked questions one might have about the vehicle, from detailed tech specs to design philosophy. All of these answers are spelled out and displayed in sharp viewing quality across some very slick and realistic simulations.

App features:

  • Available for iPad
  • European and general market specification
  • 360° exterior / interior view
  • Customization tool to view available colors and wheels options
  • 3D intro movie and interactive elements to experience features & benefits
  • Photo & video gallery
  • Kia company and design story content

The app starts with an awesome featured video, of an orange Sportage racing through a Gotham-like city.

Going ‘underneath the hood’ is an understatement to describe the interactive x-ray cutaways that show off some of key performance features of the Sportage.

Check out some of the Sportage’s safety features such as the rear-view camera display (RCD) and electro-chromic mirror (ECM)

As the old safety belts commercials used to say, “You can learn a lot from a dummy” and this one is demoing some the unique seat protection features of the Sportage.

If you think this Sportage app only features the latest model, you’re mistaken – there is a groovy little video highlighting its design history and transformation from 1996 – A must see for any Sportage owner.
