Official Teaser Images Preview The 2017 Sportage CUV
Kia will not be officially unveiling the all-new 2017 Sportage until September 17 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but a new series of teaser images give us an idea of what we can expect.
There is something of a cartoon look to the official renders from Kia, but we can still get a good idea of what’s in store for the fourth-generation compact crossover.
Styling changes will be made inside and out, starting with a lower positioning of the tiger nose grille.
The headlights have a whole new shape and design, and now feature LED daytime running lights within the cluster.

Aluminum underbody protection has been added in front and back, and the taillights, which are now connected by a red bar, have a sleeker style.
There is a spoiler mounted on the roof, and some oversized alloy wheels that are a staple of these types of renderings.
The interior of the new Sportage will be a real departure from the old.
The new look will feature elements taken from both the Sorento and the Optima.
The teaser images show off a flat-bottomed steering wheel, body-hugging seats, a large touchscreen display complete with red ambient lighting, metallic accents, a large armrest in the center, and an automatic transmission.
We will get to see the real 2017 Kia Sportage in the coming weeks before it arrives in Frankfurt.
According to Kia, consumers will be able to get their hands on the new 2017 Sportage model before the year draws to a close!
