Kia has revealed the first official exterior images of the all-new Kia Sportage, featuring an attractive new design.

The all-new Sportage will make its global debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.

Entering its fourth-generation, the all-new Kia Sportage features a bold, progressive design, with the vehicle’s designers creating a sense of power and agility from every angle.

The ‘face’ of the all-new Sportage represents the biggest change to the car’s design, with the car’s headlamps no longer integrated with the grille for the new model, instead sweeping back along the outer edges of the more sharply-detailed hood and bolder wheel arches. Immediately recognizable as a Kia, the Sportage’s lower, wider ‘tiger-nose’ grille adds more volume to the lower half of the Sportage’s face, resulting in a more imposing appearance and a more stable-looking stance.

At the rear, the horizontal forms and surface volume emphasize the car’s width and give the compact SUV a more stable appearance.

Inspired by the 2013 Kia Provo concept car, the slim combination lamps are joined by a strip that runs the width of the rear, while turn signals and reversing lights are separated, relocated lower down to add more visual weight and a greater sense of stability to the lower half of the car.
