KIA Sportage Alpha

During July 2020, Kia-Lucky Motors revealed the release of the new Sportage in a basic trim level called The Sportage ALPHA. Sportage ALPHA is almost identical to the orignly launched Sportage but KIA put it on a diet, the ALPHA is only offered with a front-wheel drive (FWD) drivetrain and lacks some frills of the orignal KIA Sportage.
Speaking of frills,ALPHA does not have features such as Panoramic Sunroof, 18 inch Alloys,fancy headlights,LED’s rear lights,quad-ice cube design DRLs, fog-lights, parking sensors, electronic parking brake , more basic 7-inch infotainment system.

The Sportage ALPHA gets the same 2 litre engine which puts out 155 hp and 196 Nm of torque,mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sportage ALPHA gets the basic features like dual-zone climate vents, USB and AUX ports, steering controls for infotainment, driver-passenger airbags, Hill-start assist, downhill brake control and vehicle stability and traction control which are same as the orignal Kia Sportage.

What I believe is that KIA is targeting Honda Civic X customers with a crossover SUV in price of a sedan, Rs. 4,399,000 seems reasonable for such a vehicle and it makes it cheaper than Honda Civic by almost Rs. 200,000.
This is yet to be decided by the fan boys and actual prospect customers who are looking for most features in a certain budget but If you had to buy one, which one would you pick? The Sportage ALPHA or the Honda CIVIC?
