One of this year’s highly anticipated cars, the new generation 2022 Kia Sportage has slowly started to emerge. First, we are faced with the interior and exterior design of the renewed Sportage.
The curious wait for the design of the new 2022 Kia Sportage has ended today, and the Korean brand has lifted the veil of the SUV model, which it has completely renewed. There will also be a European version of the new Sportage. We will have the chance to see this version for the first time in September.
New Sportage exterior
The new Kia Sportage was designed with the brand’s design philosophy of ” Opposites United “. In this context, there is a wide blind with honeycomb patterns and black color on the front of the model, where radical changes have been made on the design side. The boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights, which separate the grille and the LED headlights, are also quite remarkable. In the lower part, there is a large center air intake and fog lights.
Although the 2022 Kia Sportage does not have as sharp lines as its cousin Tucson, it is possible to say that it looks quite muscular with its prominent shoulder line and wide fenders. In addition, the expansion of the rear quarter glass towards the D-pillar made the new Sportage appear longer and contributed to its modern appearance.
At the rear of the new Sportage, a bumper design consisting of glossy black and matte gray colors stands out as well as an LED stop group extending from one end to the other and a large trunk spoiler. A new X-Line version is also available for the 2022 Sportage. In this version, which comes with a different front bumper, the roof bars are also higher than the standard version. In addition, there are different touches in the interior of the Sportage X-Line .
A more modern interior
When we look at the interior of the new generation Kia Sportage, we see remarkable changes in this area as well. Just behind the three-spoke steering wheel is a curved panel of adjacent digital gauges and infotainment screens. The ventilation grilles, which are decorated with glossy black and chrome details, with a design that extends along the console also form a beautiful unity. We see that this detail on the console continues in the upper part of the door interiors.
In the 2022 Kia Sportage’s climate controls, there are more touch buttons instead of physical buttons. In the center console, a rotary gear button working with shift-by-wire technology was preferred. On the other hand, there is a smartphone charging unit and many physical keys in this area. Engine start/stop and mode selector buttons are some of them.
The promotion is limited to the interior and exterior design of the new generation Kia Sportage for now. Information about technical details and engine options was not shared. But we know that there is a prototype that has been tested with a PHEV, a rechargeable hybrid system. The wait for other details will not take long. We will continue to convey the developments to you, our valued readers.
