Attached Image Kia’s 2017 Sportage has finally been revealed officially. It features an attractive, unique design that should that should distinguish it in the marketplace from the sea of more conservatively-styled compact crossovers including its corporate cousin, the Hyundai Tucson. The 4th generation Sportage will make its debut on September 15 at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The ‘tiger-nose’ grille remains, but the headlights are no longer integrated in central feature. At the rear, the styling has been inspired by 2013’s Provo concept car, with slim combination lamps joined by a strip that runs the width of the rear.

The body has a more raked profile than before, which hopefully hasn’t cut into interior space. We can't find any images of the interior just yet but from leaked shots, it most likely will be just as impressive as the exterior thanks to an uncluttered layout in combination with soft-touch materials and metal accents.

Powertrain specs are not released yet but one option will likely be a downsized turbocharged engine, probably the Tucson's 1.6-liter four-cylinder. Also making the cut should be a dual-clutch transmission and such active safety technologies as blind-spot detection and lane-change assist.

Look for the new Sportage to hit our shores probably next year, as a 2017 model.
