The 3rd generation Kia Sportage was produced in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. During this time, the model has been restyled once. In our material you will find a description of the fuse boxes and relays of the Kia Sportage 3 with boxes diagrams and locations from the location. Let’s highlight the fuse responsible for the cigarette lighter. The Sportage 3 is available in three trim levels: S, SE and SX with both petrol and diesel engines. The number of elements in the fuse boxes and relays depends on this.
