Sales of the new (fifth) generation (NQ5) compact crossover Kia Sportage started in South Korea, which was presented back in June.

By the beginning of sales, the manufacturer distributed a new portion of staged photos of the newest car . With their help, the unusual appearance of the car can be appreciated in a real environment, in interaction with surrounding objects.

According to 32cars.ru, the pictures show a top-end crossover with 19-inch wheels and two-tone paint (body – olive, roof – black). But the salon is shown in different variations: “rich” – with a touch screen, climate control and other “blessings of civilization” and basic – with a tiny black and white screen of the media system, air conditioning and simple interior trim.

From the outside, the new Kia Sportage looks really impressive – the interweaving of sculptural forms, sharp edges and complex compositional solutions make you hold your gaze for a long time.

Recall that the new Sportage platform is unified with the Hyundai Tucson of the NX4 generation. The length of the crossover is 4660 mm (+180 mm in comparison with its predecessor), the wheelbase is 2755 mm (+85 mm).

The base for the car is a 1.6-liter petrol turbo engine of the TGDI family. It produces 180 hp. and 264 Nm. The engine is combined with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed robotized transmission. Alternatively, a 2.0-liter diesel engine equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger is proposed. Power is 186 hp, torque is 416 Nm. Sportage on diesel fuel is aggregated only with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Production of the fifth Sportage in South Korea began in June.
