Sportage 2007 v6 automatic 2.7L petrol

I have recently bought a fine example of the above model and am very pleased with it. However several people have told me that this model contains a Mercedes engine and transmission package as opposed to the more usual 4 cylinder diesel manual model from KIA.

Does anyone know if this is true ? I must say the automatic transmission does seem to be similar to the Mercedes Tiptronic system.

They are mistaken and most likely thinking of the other Korean SUV the SsangYong Musso.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SsangYong_Musso

First produced in 1993, the Musso SUV was available with either a petrol 2.8 and 3.2-litre inline six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz M104 engine, a Mercedes-Benz M111 engine 2.3-litre inline four-cylinder petrol engine, or a 2.3-litre four-cylinder and 2.9-litre five-cylinder diesel engines (Mercedes-Benz OM601 and OM602) with natural aspiration or turbo intercooler (from 1997). The car was designed by Briton Ken Greenley and received the Auto Design Award from the Birmingham Auto Show hosted in 1994 and 1996. Also known for its off-road abilities, the vehicle won the Rallye des Pharaons for 4WD vehicles in October 1994. A facelifted version has been available since 1998.[7]
