Making a sporty urban cross-over look sleek, with the latest Boomerang LED daytime running lights design. An interior space that looks as good as it feels with a driver-centric curved display for a perfect driving experience.
A new design identity
The exterior of the new Sportage establishes new design boundaries, giving it dramatic presence on the road.
Tense and crisp lines ripple along the refined body, amplifying exquisite styling tensions. At the same time, clean but muscular surfaces join forces with intricate graphics to give the SUV a dynamic and assertive road presence.
From the front, new Sportage showcases a precise and intricate design form with its detailed-orientated black grille graphic stretching across the width of the face. The technical graphic pulls together the main frontal features of the new Sportage, presenting a striking look. The grille links Kia’s modern signature Tiger Nose grille to the distinctive futuristic-styled boomerang-shaped LED DRLs (daytime running lights), which in turn create solid boundary lines for the striking Matrix LED head lamps also known as intelligent front lighting system.
Paying homage to its sports utility heritage, the side profile of the new Sportage creates a stirring road presence with taut lines cutting across clean but refined body surfaces that seamlessly blend the contrasting volumes together.
State-of-the-art interior space
The interior of the new Sportage plays with boldness in character, softness in qualities and innovation in technology, creating a driver-orientated space that is truly state-of-the-art. The cabin has been carefully crafted to fuse breakthrough tech with luxury features, premium materials and modern style.
At the centre of the new Sportage’s modern cabin sits a beautifully sculpted integrated curved display with touchscreen pad and finely detailed sporty air vents. The curved display sweeps across the front of the interior, giving the cockpit dramatic width and depth.
The high-tech 12.3-inch touchscreen and advanced integrated controller act as the nerve centre for driver and passenger connectivity, functionality and usability needs. Both systems have been created to be easy-to-use, highly intuitive and soft to touch. The 12.3-inch instrument cluster is equipped with the latest-generation full thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display for incredibly precise and clear graphics. With such advanced and secure high-tech connectivity, new Sportage benefits from the latest over-the-air software and map updates. The advanced connectivity software in new European Sportage allows users to connect with their vehicle remotely via the Kia Connect smartphone app. The interactive, easy-to-use tech also gives users access to key onboard features such as the Kia Live Services, Online Navigation, Online voice recognition and Calendar integration from the smartphone. The Kia Connect App provides users with total peace of mind with a simple tap to check that their Sportage is locked and the windows are closed, and full convenience by informing users exactly where they last parked their SUV.
Throughout the cabin, the highest quality materials that are sumptuous to touch have been used, while dynamic colour options add vibrancy and energy. The driver and front passenger seats combine innovation and comfort in a sporting slim design.
The first version of the Sportage especially tailored to the European market in the history of the model, the 5th generation Sportage is available as Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid.
From the very start of development, new Sportage was intended to embrace the latest electrified powertrain technologies, making it one of the most efficient SUVs available. Developed on an advanced architecture that encompasses powertrain electrification innovations, both the hybrid (HEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models deliver a no-compromise eco-friendly SUV package.
The packaging for the HEV and PHEV models has been carefully arranged to avoid impact on passenger and luggage space. For the HEV derivative, the battery pack is place under the second-row seats, resulting in legroom that is the same as the IC engine Sportage models. For the PHEV Sportage, the high-voltage battery is placed centrally between the two axles under the body of the SUV, ensuring a balanced weight distribution and an interior space that is practical, comfortable and versatile.
Kia’s acclaimed in-house developed Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology – also known as DriveWise – helps the new Sportage to avoid potential hazards, fully protecting occupants and other road users on every journey. As part of its DriveWise ADAS package, the new Sportage features Kia’s industry-leading Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist System with Junction Turning functionality, which helps avoid collisions with oncoming cars when turning left at junctions.
Highway Driving Assist (HDA) maintains a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway and helps to centre the new Sportage in its lane. HDA can also adjust vehicle speed according to the speed limit.
Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC) helps drive the new Sportage at a safe speed on the highway using real-time navigation data. Further extending the scope of NSCC, for parts of the highway where there are corners and curves, the technology automatically reduces the speed of travel before encountering the corner or curve. Upon getting back to the ‘straight’ of the highway, NSCC resets the speed limit to the original level.
New European Sportage also features Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA) technology that provides warning if the car is exceeding the speed limit.
Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) helps the driver to remotely park or exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle. Parking manoeuvres are further enhanced with the addition of Rear-View Monitor (RVM) and Surround View Monitor (SVM) technology, which displays real-time video footage of the vehicle and its surroundings.
