Updated: We included new spy pictures including interior shot, new tailights. Probably this facelift looks like the 2014 Optima, a light facelift.

Directly from South Korea we received new spy pictures that confirms that Kia continues the development of the refreshed Sportage. After that Hyundai’s brother ix35/Tucson receives his facelift, the turn is for the Sportage.

It’s possible that the refreshed 2014 Sportage receive improved infotainment systems, FlexSteer and CRDi/GDi more eco-friendly engines. Hit the jump to see all the pics and stay tuned!

    Jose Antonio, taka a look at page: blog.naver.com/ubin1024 and this window dated on 02.07.2013 (with spied Mistra). When You enter this page, there are some other hidden cars (in my opinion Mistra, new ix25, something i cannot recognize, K3 nad new Soul). But definitely the most interesting are photos no. 6&7. Is it new i20 or new i30 turbo. Overall shape and lines may suggest i30, but it is to short, especially rear bumper. Maybe You can translate what is it written under this photos???

        Are You sure?
        If You take a closer look at windows line, windows shape etc. it matches perfect to i30, not i20. I saw theses photos earlier, and one journalist has written that it’s i20 and rest of writers re-wrote it and took for granted. If only rear bumper was longer, i wuold be sure that it’s i30 turbo (1,6) – which is comming, don’t knwo exactly when but it’s inevitable:)
        But of course i can be wrong and indeed it can be new i20.

          Look at the same page, photo daten on 21.02.2013 (third row, third collumn) – photo no. 1. Under it there is even a comment with “?” – “new i20?” For me windows shape suggests it may be i20. Certainly different comparing to these new photos…
