5th Gen New Kia Sportage Teased Ahead of June 8,2021 Debut
5th Gen New Kia Sportage Teased Ahead of June 8,2021 Debut - Coming to India to Rival Fortuner?
Kia has teased the fifth gen Sportage SUV before its global unveil in Korea on June 8th,2021. This is the all new model and debuts the new look Kia design language. It would be bigger and based on an all new platform. Styling wise, it has a lot more aggression in its looks due to the new design language that it has. The new Sportage will have strong character lines while it will have a black grille which occupies more space now along with making it look wider. There are slim DRLs also. There is of course the new Sportage emblem and the Kia logo.
The interior would be more spacious and a lot more hi-tech with added features. The design of the interior would be all new with a curved screen display and digital dials. We expect a twin screen set-up too while added luxury features would be seen now. With a longer wheelbase we also expect a bigger boot and more rear seat space as well. Interestingly there would be an even bigger extended wheelbase in the works too. The engines would be more powerful diesel and petrol while a hybrid would also be there.
Now the question is whether Kia launches the Sportage in India or not. The Sportage would be its luxury SUV and also be more expensive than the Tuscon. There is certainly more space in the Kia India line-up for that plus the Kia brand in itself is premium. Kia has said that it will concentrate on SUVs as of now and the Sportage fits in as a flagship product plus being assembled in India would mean decent pricing alongside the likes of the Fortuner and more. As of now the next Kia for India is a three row 7-seater product, either a Ertiga rival MPV or a 7-seater Seltos to rival Alcazar.
