2016 Kia Sportage first look in video

I have finished to fix my luggage, my cameras, sd cards, battery kit, etc… ready to visit the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and meet the All-New 2016 Kia Sportage between others. But until that, we can enjoy the wait looking at every angle with this video thanks to our Korean friend TNKfree.

Our Korean friend visited a Kia’s dealer in South Korea and filmed an European GT-Line model, could be called as SX in South Korea, with the 4-LED ice cube lights, 19″ inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust pipe, black piano front fascia and D-cut steering wheels.

The Sportage at the dealer is a diesel variant, but includes the sporty package. For example, in Europe the GT-Line model will be available exclusively with the 1.6 T-GDi engine.

The new SUV showed 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DCT) with paddle shifters, electric seats, heated and ventilated driver seat, heated passenger seat and steering wheel, Drive Mode selector.

Also showed an improved interior quality compared to the previous model, mixed cloth/leather seats, a bigger trunk thanks in part to the addition of a Tire Mobility Kit instead of a spare tire (the Sportage used to have same size spare wheel).

What do you think now about the front of the 2016 Kia Sportage? On this video I liked more than before, looks more harmonic, but I’m still need to see it in real life.
