Kia has issued teaser images of the new Sportage SUV due to be revealed in July in Korea. Key highlights of the fifth-generation Sportage are its advanced exterior and interior design, connectivity tech, and responsive yet highly efficient powertrains.
Kia’s new design language – Opposites United – is at the core of the new Sportage. The SUV has a muscular stance and strong yet refined silhouette. Notable new details include the crisp, taught character lines that ripple across the surfaces. The front has a detailed-orientated black grille graphic spanning the width of the face. At the rear, muscular shoulder lines drop to meet slim daytime-running lamps, which flank the new Kia logo and Sportage emblem.
The interior design sketch reveals a driver-orientated space that plays with boldness in character, softness in qualities and innovation in technology. At the core is a beautifully sculpted integrated curved display.
“Taking inspiration from an ethos we created where nature meets technology, the all-new Sportage challenges the norm with an adventurous and contemporary exterior and a carefully conceived, beautifully detailed interior,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Design Center. “With the all-new Sportage, we were fully focused on challenging ourselves and pushing our fifth-generation SUV to a new level.”
