Kia’s small SUV will receive a major upgrade in style to regain its position in important markets.
The styling of the 2022 Kia Sportage will be significantly changed. Although being developed from Tucson, the new Kia Sportage will not have much in common.
In the US market, despite its attractive price, many features and relatively trendy design, Kia Sportage still does not attract customers and is often underestimated compared to other models in the same segment.
This may be because the design of the Kia Sportage does not make the real impression like the Hyundai Tucson. With abundant resources, the Korean automaker is looking to change the Kia Sportage, making it a more attractive SUV.
Image shows 2022 Kia Sportage prototype covered in camouflage recently showed the car has a more eye-catching design.
Inspired by the K5, the new Sportage does not look like any Kia SUV if the commercial model is made to resemble the sketch, especially the front end.
Still using the tiger nose grille, the front end of the 2022 Kia Sportage is expected to be very different, even with the headlights. Most likely the rear end is also renewed.
At this point, everything is just guesswork. The 2022 Kia Sportage is expected to share many things in common with the Hyundai Tucson, especially the use of a 2.5-liter engine with 190 hp and 246 Nm.
In addition, the new AWD 2022 Kia Sportage can also be equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, making it a more attractive option in the segment.
