More pix of the new 2017 Kia Sportage

Last Updated:

That front end is still pretty bad. Even on this cheaper model (no LEDs)
It still looks too busy. And that grille just does not belong there…

The side looks like a more muscular version of the current design.
And the interior seems nice. But quite uninspired.

Since it is based on the same platform as its cousin the Hyundai Tucson, it should be quite good.
As the new Tucson has been getting amazingly good reviews.

  1. The more I look at this, the more I like it. when i show it to people, they see Porsche Macan/Cayenne. I think this will be great in person and will stand apart from the other offerings in this segment.

  2. In several "leaked" photos, it seems the chrome strip cuts off on the lower trim above the doors… I don't like the way that looks… Also, some other photos show a black/gray interior which looks much more modern.

  3. I have to disagree with you Vince. I think it's extremely tastefully done.. and busy is in at the moment. (Look at the Klingon-vagina styling Lexus is putting out). This lovely Kia is showing somre restraint.

  4. I wanna love it…..
    the headlights are sitting higher than I'd like, and I despair of manufacturers ever going back to sane windshield angles.
    hopefully better in person

  5. I was just thinking that- A LOT of Subaru Tribeca before the uglification/ conventionalization facelift.
