New Sportage to carry on design heritage

By SYF77 on 26 Jan 2010

The next generation Kia Sportage compact SUV has been given away through a series of designs that were made for the European Union's patent office. These patent images could be depicting an almost production-ready study destined for either the Geneva Salon in March or the Seoul Motor Show in April.

Like all Kias penned under the guiding hand of former Audi designer Peter Schreyer, the new Sportage is a much more attractive proposition than the outgoing model. The "Schreyer grill" that made its debut in the highly successful Kia Forte continues to grace the facial of the new Sportage. It looks neat and tidy to me as compared to the more complicated facial of its distant cousin, the Hyundai Tuscon.

The new Sportage is expected to share its drivetrain with the Tuscon, meaning that the 2L 166bhp (mated to a six speed automatic transmission) motor will eventually be powering the upcoming SUV.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

This is wonderfully beauty. The Koreans are dead serious in having a bigger cake in the industry.
