All-New 2022 Kia Sportage Should Debut Next April

Following the Tucson, an all-new considerably different Kia Sportage is about six months away


  • It will share many of its components with the new Hyundai Tucson.

  • A concept could be introduced before the year’s end.


Once more, the compact SUV is buzzing with activity. New entries or revamped entries are making headlines almost every other week and this time, the news appears to be that the next-generation Kia Sportage will land next spring.

As we know, the Kia Sportage is the Hyundai Tucson’s very close cousin. This is why we can safely assume that the 2022 Sportage will be powered by a 190-horsepower 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. More than likely, a turbocharged 1.6-litre 4-cylinder will also be offered with either hybrid or plug-in hybrid technology. Kia and Hyundai have committed to electrification so this would make sense.

According to Motor1.com, Kia has pushed back the introduction date as it’s working on a pair of wheelbases for the compact SUV. As well, although the new Sportage has been spied recently, no recent SUV concepts or images exist of what the Kia SUV might look like. Odds are that Kia will introduce a concept before the end of 2020.

If the new Sportage is to be inspired by the new Kia K5 and Sorento, it should be quite a looker.
