Kia continues to fuel interest in its updated Sportage crossover for the North American market. On the eve, the automaker published a teaser for the future novelty, which will combine bold design, modern equipment and ample off-road capabilities. The car will premiere on October 27, 2021.

There are still few details about the future crossover. Although this teaser is not very revealing, the US version should follow in the footsteps of the South Korean version, which debuted a little earlier.

As promised in Kia, the novelty will receive two types of drive (front and full), several powerful high-performance engines, a whole range of advanced driver assistance systems and high-tech multimedia “stuffing”.

Judging by the teaser, it can be understood that the new Sportage for the United States will receive a massive radiator grille with LED DRLs in the shape of a boomerang, as well as a tailgate in the style of the KIA EV6 electric crossover. Inside, the updated car will receive a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and the same size display for the multimedia complex.

The lineup of the crossover engines is expected to include a 1.6-liter turbo engine with 180 hp. (264 Nm), as well as a hybrid power plant based on the same unit with a total capacity of 230 hp. The appearance of a more powerful hybrid with a return of 265 hp is not excluded.
