We can’t wait till the 8th for the final reveal of Kia’s 5th generation Sportage. So we want to share with you the renderings made by GotchaCars based on the teasers that Kia revealed on Monday. While we are still not convinced about the front design (looking at this rendering) the rear view of this long wheelbase Sportage rendering is starting to grow in us. What dou you guys think?

Due to be revealed in July in Korea, the all-new Sportage has been carefully crafted to establish new benchmarks in its segment – for its advanced exterior and interior design, connectivity tech, and responsive yet highly efficient powertrains.

Revealed earlier this year to great acclaim from the design community, Kia’s new design language – Opposites United – is at the core of the Sportage, influencing every aspect of its appearance and character. The early images hint at an assertive and cutting-edge presence for the SUV – paying homage to nature’s perfection and simplicity whilst connecting with the brand’s new design direction.

The all-new Sportage follows Kia’s recent company rebrand that aims to create sustainable mobility solutions for customers by revamping all facets of its business. The first marker on the journey came in March when Kia’s first dedicated BEV – the EV6 – was unveiled.

Muscular exterior and innovative interior

The all-new Sportage has a muscular stance and strong yet refined silhouette. Notable new details include the crisp, taught character lines that ripple across the surfaces. The front creates an instant and thought-provoking statement, with a detailed-orientated black grille graphic spanning the width of the face. At the rear, muscular shoulder lines drop gently to meet slim daytime-running lamps, which flank the new Kia logo and Sportage emblem.

The interior design sketch reveals a driver-orientated space that plays with boldness in character, softness in qualities and innovation in technology. At the core is a beautifully sculpted integrated curved display.

“Taking inspiration from an ethos we created where nature meets technology, the all-new Sportage challenges the norm with an adventurous and contemporary exterior and a carefully conceived, beautifully detailed interior,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Design Center. “With the all-new Sportage, we were fully focused on challenging ourselves and pushing our fifth-generation SUV to a new level.”

More details regarding design features of the all-new Sportage will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

    I’m still hoping that somehow the camouflage in the spy-shots and that teaser are still hidding something at the front that we haven’t seen yet, because the front-end in the render is honestly horrifying.

    I would have to agree, that if this really is the front end, Tucson will be taking the lead yet again. I feel like if they took little more of Sorento from end it would be a game changer.

    Of course people cant wait to June 8th, it is 100% different design. Duh. Why else you think people putting in 50 sketches of what they think it will look like? When the 4th generation Sportage was on spyshots why no one posted sketches of what it would look like when it was also in this strange of process? Because the greenhouse was the same. Duh. So people wasnt as excited.
    I’m not understanding the design direction of their SUVs.
    Telluride , Sorento, Seltos and Carnival are edgy and square.
    The Sportage is circular and its face resembles nothing like the other Kia utility vehicles.

    But I still like it. I want to see it tackle against the Mazda Cx-50. It will be one hell of a comparison….especially since both the Kia and Mazda greenhouse are 100% changed. Finally!!! A greenhouse should never go no longer than 6 years. I hope Kia learned their lesson now.
