Its crossover Sportedzh is in high demand in almost all mar

kets in which it is presented. It is no exception, and Russia, some harsh regions which require powerful, and not afraid traveled vehicle barriers.

Apparently, it was this Korean automaker wants to make its fourth generation 2018-2019 Kia Sportage, which is currently undergoing road tests in a rather harsh conditions. Why is harsh? Because the prisoner in camouflage tape crossover travels on the roads of the Arctic Circle. It was there in late January, was first spotted the new SUV in the real road test.

Photos of the new 2018-2019 Kia Sporteydzh

Unfortunately, because the car is still in the testing phase, the manufacturer does not strongly tends wraps her appearance. However, the obtained photo and video materials allow us to consider some of the details, and compare them with the features of the third generation of the exterior of the popular crossover 2018-2019 Kia Sportage.

Thus, the front end is equipped with a completely new optical system with more compact sections, which in any case will not make it work less effectively. The widespread use of LEDs is not excluded, but is specifically talking about it early. Changed and grille that gives the car a completely different look, vaguely reminiscent of a yet-to-date Sportedzh. Classic round fog lamps, a short hood, sloping windshield, positively affecting the drag coefficient, clearly went for the benefit of the new product.

Picture KIA Sportage side

On the side it is worth noting the large wheel arches, which were established fairly simple alloy wheels. Of course, this is largely due to the fact that the car just passed the road test. At the start of sales of 2018-2019 Kia traditionally offer a range of original disc. Interesting shape of the roof, high sills, compact side windows make it clear that this is a full-fledged all-terrain vehicle, capable of a lot. Yes, and clearance allows. Much has been hidden under the film, but were clearly visible exquisite exterior mirrors fitted repeater turn signals based on light-emitting diodes.

Photo Sportage Rear

Rear view is reminiscent of the stern of the third generation Sportedzh. This is a weighty and a large tailgate, compact luggage compartment glass and a small spoiler above it. Optics is very stylish, and the rear bumper rises substantially above ground level, that only gives additional opportunities to issue the car patency.

Photo interior of the new KIA Sportage

As you know, talk about the interior does not make any sense. While 2018-2019 Kia has not officially present at least the first photographs of 2018-2019 Kia Sportage , the new generation, to know anything about the interior will be very difficult.

The only thing we can assume the use of quality materials, soft plastics, leather. It is unlikely that the manufacturer decides to borrow from the interior of the third generation of the crossover. It is still not restyled, and a full change of generations.

Anyway, it remains only to wait and see what will actually be a brand new SUV interior from Korea.

Equipment

Oddly enough, but that’s about the complete set of information has already leaked out. It is not clear whether it is officially confirmed, or a simple leak from the company, but the level of equipment seems to be quite interesting and logical.

Price KIA Sportage

We are unlikely to surprise anyone by saying that about the prices at the moment do not know anything. It is logical that the cost will be roughly on par with the current version of the 2018-2019 Kia Sportage third generation.

However, expect a rise in price is worth it. Most likely, prices will rise by 1-2 thousand dollars for the base version.

Specifications

Many speculated that the new generation of 2018-2019 Kia Sportedzh receive the same engines, which are now equipped with the actual version of the crossover. But in fact this is not the case.

Perhaps the Koreans will make a couple of engines from the current line to the list of units for the new Sportedzh.

While it is known that the new product will be in the engine compartment petrol or diesel engine. The volume of the smallest is 1.2 liters. Two motor will get the amount of 1.6 and 2.0 liters. The minimum capacity will begin with 132 horsepower and a top engine will have at their disposal 245 horsepower.

At the moment, Russia is actively going sale of the third generation of the crossover from Korea, which enjoys great demand. At the same time domestic customers are offered a choice between two two-liter diesel engines with 136 and 184 horsepower, as well as gasoline power unit with the same displacement and output of 150 horsepower.

Conclusion

It seems that the fourth-generation 2018-2019 Kia Sportage premature exit. However, one should not expect it arrives later this year.

In all likelihood, 2018-2019 Kia will hold to the end of the year several premieres and production start will be given only in 2016. That for 2016 is planned to start sales of new products.

So we have patience and wait. Those who want to become an owner, of course, a decent crossover 2018-2019 Kia Sportedzh, perhaps it makes sense to wait another year, and buy not the third and the fourth generation of this SUV. It promises to be much better than its predecessor.
