2022 Kia Sportage: getting weird…

Last Updated:

While I do like “original and different” looking cars, I am wondering if the upcoming 2022 Kia Sportage might be just a case of “too different”…
The new spy shot on top shows a bit of the headlight and grille. And, unfortunately, so far, it does look quite a bit like that horrible illustration I posted a few days ago. (bottom pic)
I know the car is still mostly covered, and who really knows what it could actually look like. 
But I just hope Kia isn’t going too far. The new Tucson is pushing the envelope. In a good way.  Pushing it too much might just end up looking weird…
Let’s hope it will just be “futuristic”…

  1. Much uglier than the new Tucson and a step backward for Kia. Hopefully it's a bad rendering.

  2. Agree with the comment that it looks better than anything GM has. However, it still looks pretty awful.

  3. I get why Sportage has to grow a bit and lose the distinctive C-pillar by adding an additional window.. Seltos and Soul are getting too close in size. Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be as disappointing as the K5 was, style-wise.

  4. Horrendous… The previous generation (which I've owned and loved) AND even it's predecessor were much classier designs. This thing is so ugly that I have no desire to even check ou its interior! Looks like a while back's Chinese design on a bad day. Sorry, but it's true.
