Kia Sportage makes the athletes. At least visually, the SUV is very dynamic at the Geneva Motor Show 2010th To the Koreans will be longer, wider and flatter.
Until now, a solidly-made Kia Sportage compact SUV with a more rustic off-road look. But with the new model cars, the Koreans a radical break: roll surprisingly sporty styling, the Sportage to the Geneva Motor Show 2010 (4) to 14 March, which show the first official pictures. Not only that Kia his SUV in a bright orange to show debut sends the entire line management seems much more dynamic than the angular predecessor. The whole thing looks like a mix between the big brother Sorento and the Audi Q5.
Even the rear gets a flourish with laterally projecting taillights, a small rear window and wide C-pillars, topped with a roof spoiler and a bold curve down into the trunk. The engines will be split between the Sportage with her brother Hyundai iX35, but you have to be a prophet. A 160-hp, two-liter gasoline engine and a 2.0-liter common-rail diesel engine in two power levels (136 and 170 hp) are coupled to a manual six-speed manual gearbox, if desired, there is a six-speed automatic. The new Kia Sportage comes in the second half of 2010 in Europe on the market.
