Kia shares glimpse of its fifth-generation Sportage SUV with fresh design
2022 Kia Sportage SUV shares the same N3 platform used for the new Hyundai Tucson and Kia K5 SUVs.
Kia has revealed details about its fifth-generation 2022 Sportage SUV. The Korean carmaker has released a series of images to show how the design and other aspects of the SUV has changed compared to its predecessors.
The front face of the 2022 Sportage SUV gets straight lines with a large grille, split at the corners by the LED daytime running lights in the shape of a boomerang.
At the rear, the 2022 Sportage SUV has a clear similarity with the Kia EV6’s tailgate design and the roofline. The taillights are linked by a horizontal strip that runs across the tailgate, in contrast to a clean design tinged with the thick black bumper and skid plates.
The floating sideline is now sportier than ever as it gradually rises to the rear and reached the top at the D pillar. The upper half of the body has also been redesigned to be more compact.
The fifth-generation Sportage SUV will also feature a Sportage X-Line version. It will feature special design details such as a slightly different-looking front bumper, gloss black finishes, larger roof bars and a more pronounced rear spoiler, among others.
The cabin is dominated by a huge horizontal screen that houses the digital dashboard and the infotainment system. The vents for climate control now have a three-dimensional effect. 2022 Kia Sportage also gets a new multifunctional steering wheel.
Kia has also replaced the traditional gear lever with a rotary gear selector inside the 2022 Sportage. The gear also has a selector of driving modes, the heating and ventilation controls of the seats.
