Longer, wider and lower than the previous model - by 90 mm, 15 mm and 60 mm respectively - the all-new layout successfully retains the key SUV features - a commanding driving position, heightened sense of safety and comprehensive road presence - that made the second-generation Kia Sportage so well-known.

Now, under the direction of Kia's Chief Layout Officer Peter Schreyer, the Kia layout teams have created a third-generation Kia Sportage incorporating Kia's new layout DNA and many features from the 2007 Kia Kue concept vehicle, to be immediately identifiable and to stand out from potential competitors in an increasingly crowded segment.
