The new Sportage has already been shown, but Kia says it has designed a new variant specifically for European customers

After recently showing images of the global model, Kia has now unveiled sketches of the European version of its new best-selling SUV, the Sportage. This variant has been designed and developed specifically for the European customer. 

Using the company’s latest design language called “Opposites United”, the latest Sportage could take on a more curvacious appearance. The sketches include arching lines and rounded surfaces, each of which are highly accentuated and over-dramatised.
