2022 Kia Sportage Redesign, Specs, Price, Exterior, Interior

Already in the US Europe dealerships promote rumors regarding new Sportage. Based on forecast the 2022 Kia Sportage will make a great success on the market. The model presents several novelties in its interior and exterior. 

Do you want to get to know him better? 

Main competitors of the 2022 Kia Sportage are:

Hyundai iX35; Mitsubishi ASX; Fiat Freemont; RAV4; Subaru Forester.

The next-generation 2022 Kia Sportage will have completely new exterior

With the last generation marking only a superficial change for the model, the next generation is likely to bring about a more radical redesign. We’ve seen Kia’s next-generation SUV design/engineering methods in action with the 2020 Kia Telluride and upcoming 2022 Kia Seltos so we think the next 2022 Kia Sportage will look more like these and less like the older wave of Kia SUVs.

According our oppinion a sportier and more athletic exterior appearance with fewer curves and more ridges. We expect to see a boost in the ground clearance as well as the Sportage leans into its name and becomes Kia’s nameplate for off-road and overland adventuring.

The updated interior for 2022 Kia Sportage

Regarding Interoor of new 2022 Kia Sportage will be floating touchscreens, with safetz and tech benefit for drivers.

They’re also in line with modern automotive design that sees the dashboard stretched horizontally rather than vertically. We fully expect the interior of the next-generation Kia Sportage to look more like the Chinese Sportage – the Kia KX5 – and less like the current model.

2022 Kia Sportage Exterior, Price and position on the Market

Kia’s SUV lineup is in a strange spot at the moment. The introduction of the Kia Seltos, which is larger than many expected, has put some strain on the Kia Sportage which only exceeds the front-row legroom of the Kia Seltos by one-tenth of an inch, the rear legroom by two-tenths of an inch and is actually rated for less maximum cargo volume with all seats down (60.1 cubic feet in the Kia Sportage vs. 62.8 cubic feet in the Kia Seltos).

While the Sportage enjoys a longer wheelbase, and consequently a smoother ride (presumably), it’s going to have to make a stronger appeal to drivers who may be inclined to choose the upcoming Kia Seltos and its sub-$22,000 starting MSRP (which includes AWD) over the compact SUV.

We think the Kia Sportage will move up in overall size, allowing Kia to position it as a ruggedized compact SUV that is more poised to go up especially against the likes of the new RAV4 and Subaru Forester.

While the current Kia Sportage emphasizes its luxurious amenities and quirky styling, we think Kia will direct drivers who want a luxurious SUV to find it in the Kia Sorento.
