Kia Unveils The Next-Generation 2022 Sportage

Kia has been progressively updating its whole portfolio, and the recently launched Kia Sportage brings the company's efforts to a close.
The new Kia Sportage replaces the aging crossover and is a major departure from the previous model. The entirely redesigned model has now entered its fifth generation, making its global premiere with an all-new look based on the automaker's new design philosophy known as "Opposites United," which debuted with the Kia EV6.
The Kia Sportage has a very complex grille with separate lighting features similar to the K5. More notably, the all-new vehicle now sports Kia's new badge. The revised version of the Tiger Nose grille, now known as the Digital Tiger Face, may also be seen on the 2022 Kia Sportage. The black mesh grille spans the entire fascia, and the boomerang-shaped DRLs distinguish it from the low-mounted headlamps.
More glass on the sides visually lengthens the Sportage. The fifth-generation Sportage features sleek lines that highlight the clean body surface. The global model gains a black roof as an option, as well as a redesigned wheel design that emphasizes more of the profile.
It's plausible that it's longer, but we won't know for sure until Kia provides specifics. The back has full-width taillights, however they are similar to those on the EV6.
Inside, the Kia Sportage features a contemporary cabin design that is just as radical as the exterior. It has two large screens for instruments and infotainment that are housed in a single black frame.
The air vents are arranged in a geometric pattern across the dashboard. And, based on the images of the press car, it looks like more colors and higher-quality materials are being used than the current model, which is relatively dark and plasticky.
Kia has not revealed any information about the powertrain, pricing, or dimensions. It has, however, revealed a slightly more rugged-looking X-Line edition with a distinctive bumper, side sill, and curved roof rack. The interior of the X-Line is available in sage green or black seating, as well as striking quilting and black metal wood.
The entire global market introduction of the 2022 Kia Sportage will take place later this year, with further information on its powertrain and other critical aspects to be published as the date approaches.
