Kia has revealed the first official teaser images of the new Sportage – the fifth incarnation of the brand’s most popular SUV model.

The new model is due to be revealed in July in Korea. However, in September, and for the first time in the model’s 28-year history, Kia Europe will unveil a dedicated European version of the Sportage.

Kia says a new design language – Opposites United – is at the core of the Sportage, influencing every aspect of its appearance and character.

Kia claims the new Sportage has a ‘muscular stance and a strong yet refined silhouette’.

“Taking inspiration from an ethos we created where nature meets modernity, the new Sportage challenges design norms with an adventurous yet contemporary exterior and a beautifully detailed and pioneering interior,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Design Center. “With new Sportage, we didn’t simply want to take one step forward, but rather move to a completely different level within the SUV class.”

More details regarding design features of the all-new Sportage will be unveiled in the coming weeks, as well as information on the European version and UK specification.
