Spotted a prototype of the updated crossover Kia Sportage 2022April 2, 2021
Thanks to the new spy video, you can see the prototype of the South Korean Kia Sportage 2022 crossover from the inside and outside. The test car was heavily camouflaged.
Kia is carefully updating its lineup by modifying old models and introducing new ones. At the moment, the turn has come to the Sportage crossover, which is the brand’s best-selling model. Photographs of camouflaged 2022 Sportage prototypes have already been posted several times, including at the Nürburgring. Thanks to the new video, we can take a closer look at the new crossover. There is even a photo of the salon of the long-awaited novelty.
The noticed prototype of the new Sportage has a rather dense camouflage lash and even special false panels that cover the real outlines of the body.
But you can still consider that the headlight is V-shaped. The V-shaped motif also appears at the rear in the design of the taillights, although much of the rear is well hidden. If the Sportage is similar to other recent Kia models, it could have a pretty unique design.
This is the first time we get a glimpse into the interior of the updated crossover, although Kia has covered the dashboard and center console with a special cloth. We see the seats and door panels, the latter having a two-tone design. The updated Sportage should get new screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, as well as a host of safety features. Kia plans to offer the Sportage with two wheelbase options.
The new Sportage will share its platform with the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson, so they may have some design similarities. The Sportage will come with several engines, including gasoline, diesel and electrified, although availability will vary by market. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the model will also be available.
