Kia releases teaser sketches of 2016 Sportage

The new Sportage looks set to hit the roads next year and will continue to target the hugely successful Nissan Qashqai

It is wise to take sketches of new cars with a pinch of salt as they are often tinged with outlandish features that will never make the production line.

However, the fact that Kia has revealed drawings of the new Sportage so close to its’ unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show does offer some hints to its design.

Official images certainly demonstrate “dramatically-sculpted bodywork”, which Kia has established will be the case for the 2016 incarnation.

The bold design includes a front-end that looks remarkably similar to a Porsche Macan; featuring the now trademark gaping Kia grille.

The back-end showcases a small spoiler and striking light formation, while the sweeping lines display Kia’s approach of exuding “power and agility from every angle”.

Inside the cabin it appears to share a lot of the dials with the Cee’d, but a new seven-inch infotainment screen and increased refinement levels will make it their “highest-quality cabin to date”.

Critics believe the Sportage will look more upright and the stand-out features toned down as expected with most artistic impressions.
