2016 kia sportage (23)

In less than one week we will be covering the launch event of the All-New 2016 Kia Sportage at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Until that, we want to share with you new pictures and this will help to make the wait more bearable.

What we know so far? The All-New 2016 Kia Sportage is set to be available at the dealers in the first months of 2016 (at least in Europe).

With a choice of revamped gasoline and diesel engines, like the 1.6 T-GDi 175 hp or the availability of Kia’s in house 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DCT), Kia wants to remove that label that says Kia cars have bad driving dynamics, less power or higher consumption compared with its rivals.

About safety, Kia has included the latest technologies like Blind Spot Detection, an automatic city brake system, speed limit information between others, like the use of more than 50% of high strenght steel on the chassis. Also will offer another convenience features such as Smart Trunk or Wireless Charging system for smartphones.

In Europe, Kia also will offer a sporty look for the Sportage with the introduction of the “GT-line” model. This sporty model will be available at launch only with the 1.6 Turbo engine, and will include ice-cube 4 LED lights, dual exhaust pippers, black front fascia, sporty steering wheel or 19″ inch wheels.

If Kia wants to extend the Sportage GT-line into the European market need to offer it with a diesel variant.

I will be personally at the launch event during the Frankfurt Motor Show to tell you my first impresions, take a lot of pictures and a few videos. Also we are preparing several articles about previous generation Sportage. Stay tuned!

    The direct front view pictures are bombastic. But from some angles there are strange perceptions. I must see the original at the KIA dealer. Cant wait it though im not that into the Sportage. But the grille is definitely better than on the new Sorento. Its definitely too big and too ugly for the Sorentos beautiful rest front. KIA please change it as soon as possible.

    KIA forever.
