The all-new Kia Sportage made its global debut at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show, with an attractive, all-new interior and exterior design, a host of advanced new technology features and greater quality.
Now entering its fourth-generation, the new Kia Sportage compact SUV builds comprehensively on the success of the outgoing model, offering an innovative and sophisticated package to buyers in an increasingly competitive market. The new-look interior features high quality materials and design integrity, as well as great practicality and a range of technologies to improve comfort, convenience, connectivity and safety. A range of new and updated engines and transmissions will result in enhanced efficiency and performance, while ride, handling and refinement are all improved.
Kia says the exterior design was inspired by modern jet fighters, combining smooth and sharp shapes into one robust and attractive package. The new design also helps reduce the drag coefficient from 0.35 to 0.33.
Inside, the restyled driver-oriented dashboard comes with a clean simple design, while the rest of the interior features more quality materials, soft-touch panels and even metalwork. Passenger space has also increased thanks to a bigger wheelbase. New features include better sound insulating, auto emergency brake, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, high beam assist, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, new infotainment system and even wireless phone charging. Handling was also improved thanks to a more rigid body, enhanced fully-independent suspension and updated braking system.
