KIA has released, or rather teased, the images of an all-new model of KIA Sportage that is likely to hit automobile markets in 2022.
The South Korean auto manufacturer has shared three images on its official social media pages along with a caption that reads, “After the launch of the new brand and the Kia EV6, we will reveal another significant milestone for the brand. The all-new Sportage. Full design unveil on 8 June.”
Shortly after the pictures were released, KIA Worldwide also posted a short video showing only the shadow of the all-new vehicle. In the six-second video, the vehicle’s front lamps are switched on. The caption reads: “Mark your calendar. Full design will be unveiled on 8 June.”
One of the most popular SUVs of KIA, Sportage had already mesmerized auto enthusiasts with its previous model that featured a classy outlook – enhanced by the sharp taillights and overall sleekness of design.
It’s expected that the all-new KIA Sportage will debut sometime in July, and subsequently be offered in the U.S. automobile market in 2022.

From the teaser images we’ve inferred that the new SUV will boast impressive C-shaped lighting setup that stands out, and tail end will once again feature full width LEDs. And of course, how can we forget the new KIA logo which shows in one of the pictures where the steering is visible.
Speaking of which, KIA Sportage 2023’s interior is by no means an ordinary one. The compact SUV comes equipped with a massive central infotainment and vehicle display system that provides added luxury and comfort. Below the display sits some buttons to manage the different functions of the vehicle.
