New renders of KIA Sportage 2022 model year appeared on the webDecember 1, 2020
The car will try on a new corporate identity of the brand.
KIA is entering the final stages of work on the new, fifth in a row, generation of the Sportage crossover. The car has already been seen several times on road tests, including the Nurburgring. Based on the spy photos, the designers of the Motor.es portal made renders and shared the results. KIA has developed a new corporate identity for its cars, and it is Sportage who is entrusted with the role of a pioneer. It is possible that the company’s recently updated emblem will debut on the Sportage.
In the front part, special attention is drawn to the design of the headlights – the running lights have received a “broken” shape and frame the radiator grille on the sides. The latter has noticeably increased in size, which makes the car more aggressive. The rear-view mirrors will be mounted on separate “legs”. It is expected that the designers will change the glass line of the car, as it has not changed the design for a long time.
This should give the car a more modern look. Most likely, the taillights will be combined into a monoblock with a luminous strip. This is not visible in the spy photos, but the latest KIA models are made that way.
It is expected that the engine range will pass from the Hyundai Tucson to the new product – in this case, we will see gasoline, diesel engines, as well as various hybrid power plants.
In the future, experts do not exclude the appearance of an all-electric modification of the e-Sportage. The new KIA Sportage will debut in the South Korean car market – this may happen in the spring.
