According to the automotive news site, TheKoreanCarBlog, the all-new Kia Sportage could start its production by the end of June. The report came after the possible April debut that didn’t push through. With that, will the South Korean automaker finally proceed with the next-generation model’s global debut?
Along with this rumor, spy shots and unofficial renderings have been surfacing online, therefore giving us a closer look at the all-new Sportage. Since last year, photos of the camouflaged crossover have been spied being tested, one of which includes it being spotted on South Korean roads. Shown on the image is the short-wheelbase version of the upcoming Sportage that’s been disguised with some fake body panels.
Just recently, Koaeca.ru released a rendering of the 2022 Kia Sportage in its short-wheelbase form. Presumably, it will share several bits and pieces from its longer wheelbase sibling. However, there could be some contrasting elements on its front, side, and rear angles that’ll properly distinguish both crossovers.
Last month, another rendering of the all-new Kia Sportage was released, this time it’s the long-wheelbase version. From the word itself, this particular version of the crossover stretches longer given its larger windows on its D-pillar. Upfront, the fascia appears to get a different pair of headlights, a slightly revised Tiger Nose grille, and its bumper also comes with fog lamps.
Reports also state that the all-new model will share the same platform as its Hyundai cousin, the Tucson. Aside from that, it could also share a familiar set of engine options from the compact crossover. Like recent Kia releases, the next-generation Sportage is expected to carry the brand’s new logo which goes by its rebranding phase.
With the rumored April debut not pushing through, let us then hope that June will finally be the time to uncover the camo on the all-new Sportage. We’re crossing our fingers on this, as we're excited to see what Kia has in store for its compact crossover.
