The Korean company is preparing for the premiere of the all-new Sportage crossover.

The Sportage model dates back to 1993, when the first generation crossover appeared. Today, the fourth generation is already on the conveyor, it was first introduced in 2015, and three years later the SUV was updated.

Kia has been testing a completely new generation of Sportage for several months now, and from time to time it gets into the lens of spy cameras.

The crossover is still quite heavily camouflaged, but some details can still be seen. The front end will receive a much larger grille, and large headlights will match it.

Their uniforms are still hidden by camouflage, we presented one of the options for how they might look.

The proportions are at first glance similar to the current model, but overall the body will become a little heavier, especially in the rear.

The shape of the side glazing will change due to the ascending sill line and a different angle of inclination of the rear door pillars.

On the sidewalls, a pair of stampings stand out — a horizontal one just below the door handles and a semicircular one above the rear wheel arches.

The Sportage will retain its visually cohesive taillights, while making them more angular and more likely to glow full width. Judging by the spy photos, the crossover can get a two-tone body color, like the younger Seltos model.

Another interesting detail — the test samples do not have a rear wiper, it will probably be «hidden» under the spoiler. Finally, the car presented on the renders has a new brand emblem, officially presented recently.

The new Kia Sportage will be built on the same platform as the fourth generation Hyundai Tucson. With him, he will share a wide range of engines, including gasoline, diesel engines and hybrid options.

Kia was previously expected to unveil the next-generation Sportage crossover this month. But May is already approaching, and there is not a word from the Korean company about the new product.

But on the other hand, a video appeared on the Web, in which a disguised test prototype is still driving on the roads of South Korea. The design of the new model is likely to match other recently redesigned Kia vehicles.

Any new details that will be characteristic of the Sportage are not seen in this video. However, you can see the rear optics in action, which received a trapezoidal shape, similar to vertically oriented headlights.

Also noticeable is the contoured grille, which looks wide enough to still match the family’s tiger nose design. A massive air intake can be seen at the bottom of the bumper

As mentioned earlier, depending on the market, the new generation Kia Sportage will be offered with different wheelbase lengths, as well as with different engine options. The powertrain of the crossover will include petrol, diesel and electrified versions.

The platform for the Sportage is borrowed from the new generation Hyundai Tucson. This, by the way, speaks in favor of the fact that their motor range will probably coincide.

Thus, under the hood of the new generation of the crossover in some markets, in particular in the United States, a 3.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with a capacity of 187 hp can be located. and a 1.6-liter hybrid unit.

It produces 226 hp. Previously published photos have confirmed that hybrid motors will definitely be in stock.

Despite the fact that Kia has yet to reveal the official debut date for the cross, there are rumors that it will go on sale before the end of this year.

In fact, this long-awaited update should give the popular Sportage more options to compete on an equal footing with a variety of models in its segment.
