The company Kia revealed the updated crossover Sportage. Sales of the car in Europe will begin in the third quarter of this year. The prices for a novelty will be named later.

The crossover received optics, made in the styling of the new Cerato, which was shown at the beginning of the year at the Detroit Motor Show. Sportage differs from the pre-styling model with headlight headlights with four LED elements, another radiator grille and other air intakes in the spirit of the concept car SP.

Also the model is equipped with new bumpers and an exhaust system. In addition, the updated Sportage has upgraded underbody protection, and 16-, 17- and 19-inch wheels to choose from. In the cabin of the crossover, a new instrument panel is installed, an upgraded infotainment system with a large touch screen and sports seats with leather trim.

In addition to changes in appearance, the technical stuffing of the Sportage has also changed. In particular, the crossover has a modification with a combined power plant, which operates according to the mild hybrid (soft hybrid) scheme. The four-cylinder turbodiesel works in conjunction with the 48-volt on-board power supply, which, according to the developers, improved fuel economy and reduced the number of harmful emissions.

Also, from the engine scale of the car, a 1.7-liter CRDi unit was removed. This motor was replaced with a new 1.6-liter U3 CRDI. The engine will be offered in two power options: 115 hp and 136 hp.
