2020 Kia Sportage

Last Updated:

I guess it is time for the Kia Sportage to get its mid-cycle revisions.

Nothing drastic. They almost 83 000 of them last year. Which is fine. Not great, but fine I guess.
So changes are small for the new year.

The front end is new. With a surprisingly slightly smaller grille. (The new car is the red one)
Smaller LED lights in the back.

Inside, I can’t see anything new. Except for a bit more silver trim on the steering wheel and a slightly larger screen.

Engines are the same. Either a 2.4 Liter or a 2.0 Liter turbo.
With a 6 speed auto…

  1. At least they are doing away with the cartoon smiley face. They almost made it too cute and realized that didn't work too well. I so prefer the "truckette" look of the RAV4 better.

  2. This is a big segment and Kia better have something good, and slightly bigger, ready for the all new one that should be out in a year or so.

  3. The pre-facelift actually looks much better.. and could Kia please stop putting the turn signals in the rear bumpers? Just noticed the new Forte has them there as well. 🙁

  4. This would had looked better if they totally redesigned the 9 year old greenhouse. It debuted in 2010 as a 2011 model. That greenhouse is outdated.

  5. The exterior looks good. It's a stylish crossover. However, the interior is a total mess. After owning a Tesla, I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to this kind of clutter. And if my last Sonata rental car was any indication, a thousand cut lines and buttons are just places for fingernail clippings and skin dust to settle into.

  6. I hope like Kia Tusket and Telluride have a boxy sh as pe appearance when they redesign the Sportage's greenhouse it looks like that too.

  7. Prefer the more aggressive looking front on the earlier model. The refresh looks busier, but somehow more conservative.
