Latest Sketches Show What Next-gen Sportage May Look Like

Keeping close with spy shots, new Sportage set for public debut in Frankfurt in September

After spy shots were divulged of the next-generation KIA Sportage, KIA’s European design team whipped up some sketches of just what that new Sportage should look like without the camouflage cover on it. The sketches seem to closely resemble the aforementioned spy shots.

One of the most noticeable changes on the exterior happens right up front. While the grille may keep much of the same composition, the front LED headlights are swept back for a more streamlined, sleeker approach. The CUV almost takes on the shape of a sports coupe as the roof arches back more. In the back, the LED taillights stretch across the hatch.

KIA promises the most refined, highest-quality cabin to date for the next-gen Sportage. While the interior shots showed only the front seats, the sketches presented by KIA give a better idea of what the driver and front-seat passenger will experience. It appears that the UVO touchscreen is angled more toward the driver as a wrap-around feature as opposed to earlier Sportage models.

Whether the United States and Jim Butler KIA will see a Sportage such as this remains to be seen, but the public reveal of the newly styled Sportage will take place on Sept. 15 in Frankfurt, Germany. Stay tuned to Jim Butler KIA’s blog and social media for updates on the Sportage and other KIA models!
