The all-new Kia Sportage will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine.
Kia growing SUV lineup started out back in 1993, when the Kia Sportage was first introduced for sale. Since then, the Kia brand has transformed into the desirable auto manufacturer we know and love today. During this time the Kia Sportage has matured into a competent luxury SUV. The Kia brand is continuing its campaign to move upmarket and the Sportage will follow in the footsteps of the top tier Telluride luxury SUV to grow Kia market share.
We finally saw more of the Sportage exposed including some very unique headlights. The upcoming 2022 Sportage will share its platform and powertrain options with the Hyundai Tucson, and we expect a host of options to cover all types of customers. Expect familiar gasoline engines, hybrid options, and maybe even an electrified SUV in the future. This flexible platform allows Kia to offer customers exactly what they are looking for while amortizing development costs across more models to keep prices down.
A while ago, photos of the all-new Kia Sportage, were leaked in the Chinese version, bearing the Kia logo. The car will also be equipped with 4-cylinder engines, the first naturally breathable, with a capacity of 2.0-liters.
