Interior of the new Kia Sportage crossover was shownJuly 21, 2021
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.
