Red Dot
With its newly developed design and future-oriented engine technologies, the Kia Sportage has been conceived as a compact SUV for the modern family. A striking feature is the characteristic front grille which, together with the large headlights, underlines the powerful design language of the engine hood. The design of the sides is marked by the strongly pronounced wheel arches and the distinctive swage lines on the lower part of the doors. The strongly slanted windshield, merging seamlessly into the roof and shoulder line, lends the Sportage its dynamic profile. Due to the narrow design of the side windows, the proportions of the body and the glass surfaces resemble those of a sports car. The interior reveals a generous layout for families: The long wheelbase achieves a spacious feel for passengers while selected materials create an extremely high comfort. Built for an urban lifestyle, the Sportage is characterised by comparatively low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions.
