Kia teases first images of all-new Sportage

Images teasing the fifth generation Sportage SUV have been released by Kia,

Kia says the next Sportage will feature a pioneering interior design, promising serenity, and space, with a swooping, integrated curved display a clear focal point.

The new Sportage will be officially unveiled in July, with production due to commence soon after. New Zealand pricing and model information will be available closer to the new vehicle’s launch date.

Kia has revealed the first official teaser images of the all-new Sportage – the fifth incarnation of the brand’s most popular SUV model.

Due to be revealed in July, the all-new Sportage has been carefully crafted to establish new benchmarks in its segment – for its advanced exterior and interior design, connectivity tech, and responsive yet highly efficient powertrains.

Revealed earlier this year to great acclaim from the design community, Kia’s new design language – ‘Opposites United’ – is at the core of the Sportage, influencing every aspect of its appearance and character. The early images hint at a contemporary, cutting-edge presence for the SUV.

The all-new Sportage follows Kia’s recent company rebrand that aims to create sustainable mobility solutions for customers by revamping all facets of its business. The first marker on the journey came in March when Kia’s first dedicated BEV – the EV6 – was unveiled.

The images reveal that the fifth generation Sportage will have a muscular stance, with a strong yet refined silhouette. Notable new details include crisp, taught character lines that ripple across the surfaces. Kia says the model’s front end has been designed to create an instant, thought-provoking statement, with a detail-orientated black grille graphic spanning the width of the face. At the rear, muscular shoulder lines drop gently 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.

New Zealand pricing and model information will be available closer to the new vehicle’s launch date.
