Kia Sportage fifth-generation

Kia Corporation, the South Korean auto major, has released the first official teaser images of fifth generation of the new Kia Sportage. The Kia Sportage is one of the most popular SUVs from the company.

So, the all-new SUV will make its debut in Korea in July 2021. The Kia Sportage received great acclaim from the design community after it was revealed earlier this year.

The teaser images suggest an assertive and innovative presence for the SUV. Furthermore, the next-gen SUV follows Kia’s recent rebrand, which aims to create sustainable mobility solutions to buyers by revamping every facet of their business. To recall, Kia had unveiled its first dedicated BEV – the EV6 in March as the first marker of its goals.
