A new generation of the Kia Sportage crossover was presented at the International Motor Show in Guangzhou, China.

According to the local AutoHome magazine, the new Kia Sportage in China will receive the Ace prefix in its name. Judging by the pictures, the car has got a more brutal appearance with design elements of the new Sorento – a massive radiator grille, modernized optics and a front bumper with developed air intakes stand out.

At the rear of the new generation of the crossover, we see LED lights with vertical elements, which also refer us to the recently debuted Kia Sorento. Also through the rear bumper are trapezoidal nozzles on the exhaust pipes and an imitation of a diffuser.

According to local media, the Kia Sportage Ace has moved to a new platform with a generation change, which has a positive effect on its size. So, the length of the crossover has grown by 70 mm to 4,530 mm, and the wheelbase is now 2,640 mm.

The interior, as well as the technical specifications, are still a mystery. But the Chinese Sportage is expected to be powered by a 1.5-liter supercharged engine that produces 200 hp. power. Basic options will include an upgraded Drive Wise assistant package. The global Kia Sportage model will differ from the Chinese specification Sportage Ace.
