Kia Sportage 2022: the new generation of the Sportage crossover.
The main details about the new 5th generation Kia Sportage crossover have become known.

The redesigned 2022 Sportage, like its closest relative Tucson, will be available with two wheelbase options.

The short version is intended for Europe, and the long version is intended for the markets of the USA, China and, apparently, Russia.

At home, the new Kia Sportage will go on sale in August with two motors and at a price of 22 thousand dollars (about 1.64 million rubles).

In other countries, the crossover will appear later and with a different line of engines from the Korean, which will include hybrid installations. According to preliminary information, the model will reach Russia in early 2022.

Body design and dimensions

The appearance of the novelty is decided in the style of «combining opposites», which means a combination of intricate elements with simple lines of body panels.

At the front, the characteristic tiger nose grille is larger and more complex. The head optics, equipped with large boomerangs of navigation lights, look original and somewhat futuristic.

The stern is also decorated in an unusual way. The bumper architecture echoes the design of the front grille, and the compact light units are linked by a thin red stripe.

The Sportage’s profile has changed a lot — the proportions have been adjusted, the waist line has visually risen, additional windows have formed in the rear roof pillars. The mounting of the side mirrors has changed.

In addition to the classic versions, the range will include the off-road version of the X-Line and the sports modification of the GT-Line. Each version with a specific external body kit.

And for the first time, the Kia Sportage will receive a contrasting black roof, offered as an option. The size of the rims, depending on the configuration, will be 17, 18 or 19 inches. Several configurations and colors of wheels have been developed.
