Kia unveils the first official news and photos of its new Sportage. On the occasion of its fifth generation, the South Korean SUV is making its revolution …

Announced in recent days through several pictures, the new Kia Sportage is emerging. Launched in 1994, the South Korean SUV is now upgraded to the fifth generation . For the occasion, Kia has completely revised its design . The Sportage is now unrecognizable , both on the outside and inside.

Kia changes everything!

No more curves. The Sportage takes muscle and gains character . The transformation is notably obvious at the front where the model now adopts an imposing “tiger nose” grille, very vertical, which is surrounded by very tapered boomerang-shaped projectors. At the rear, the lights are connected to each other by a thin light strip and a roof spoiler is installed above a narrow and inclined window.

In profile, the evolution of the Sportage is also evident. The silhouette of the SUV is clearly energized via an extended and tapered side glazed surface.

A high-end and high-tech interior

The metamorphosis continues on board with a real feeling of moving upmarket . Modernized, the Sportage seems to benefit from better quality materials. It is also much more high-tech thanks in particular to a large digital dual-screen panel that includes the instrument cluster and the central screen, as on the recent Kia EV6.

Electrified, like the Hyundai Tucson?

Not a word on the other hand concerning the technical sheet. As a cousin of the new Hyundai Tucson , with which it shares its platform, the fifth Sportage of the name should nevertheless be equipped with electrified engines . Light hybrid, hybrid and plug-in hybrid diesel versions are particularly hoped for. Commercialization is expected at the end of 2021 or early 2022.
