At the end of 2021, a new generation of Kia Sportage will hit the market

Bold design and technological improvements - these two features are characteristic of the new Kia Sportage, which debuts immediately after its more premium cousin named Hyundai Tucson. The fifth generation of the Korean crossover will compete with such recognized class leaders as the Volkswagen Tiguan and Peugeot 3008. The newcomer is designed specifically for the European market, so its characteristics and consumer qualities must meet the demanding demands of customers. Also, during the presentation it became known that the electric version of the Kia Sportage is expected.

The design solutions used in the exterior of the new Sportage were borrowed from an electric car called the EV6. Bold design seasoned with modern elements of optics and branded features of the brand is very radical and not like its predecessor. In sports performance, a more aggressive body kit and huge wheels are noticeable.

In the middle of the crossover, the changes are not less than in appearance. The instrument panel extended in width within the driver's view and to the central tunnel. The devices are offered exclusively in digital form, which are displayed on a 10.25-inch display. In some parts of the interior of the new Kia Sportage you can find soft plastic and metal interior elements.

The manufacturer did not provide specifications for engines and accessories in terms of safety and comfort, but noted that the newcomer will have much in common with the Hyundai Tucson. The powerplants for both crossovers will receive electrified elements including a 48-volt soft hybrid system. The electrification system will have its own battery, which will allow you to travel short distances without additional charging. The Koreans will also introduce a smart manual gearbox for the 1.6-liter gasoline engine. The total power of the power plant will be 227 hp. and 350 Nm of torque. The hybrid modification is followed by a model with plug-in technology, thanks to which the range from electricity will reach 50 km. The crossover is set up almost like a car, so a sporty version with a more powerful engine and automatic transmission is expected. The base price of the Kia Sportage will reach 25 thousand euros, and the top versions are estimated at 40 thousand euros…
