2016 Kia Sportage officially revealed
Kia Motors has revealed the first official photos of the all-new 2016 Kia Sportage which will make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
THE FOURTH-GENERATION 2016 Kia Sportage has been revealed today in the first official photos of the car. Spy photos and design sketches have been hitting the ‘Net over the last two weeks.
Kia’s short release said: “the all-new Kia Sportage features a bold, progressive design, with the vehicle’s designers creating a sense of power and agility from every angle. Echoing the contrast of smooth and sharp shapes found on some of the most iconic modern fighter jets, the Sportage creates visual harmony out of the tension between sharp, defined feature lines and smooth surfacing.”
The most significant change to the vehicle is the snout with the Sportage’s headlights no longer integrated with the grille for the new model, instead sweeping back along the outer edges of the more sharply-detailed bonnet and “bolder” wheel arches.
Inspired by the 2013 Kia Provo concept car, the slim combination lamps are joined by a strip that runs the width of the rear, while turn signals and reversing lights are separated, relocated lower down to add more visual weight and a greater sense of stability to the lower half of the car.
Expect more information to be dribbled out about the Sportage as we get closer to the Frankfurt Motor Show.
