It's no secret that This develop a new generation of Sportage. We got a preview of the crossover in August this year, but since then the maker The South Korean has been quite discreet in its R&D work. One month after the start of the spy photo of the new Sportage, we have received confirmation that the vehicle is ready for production It will debut in April of next year.
Combine all the small pieces of the puzzle and be inspired by the new hyundai tucson, designer AtchaCars has put together a fairly plausible illustration of what the new Sportage could look like. We like what we see and hope the actual crossover will be similar to these renderings.
The artist explains here that he is waiting for the new Sportage 2022 be very similar to Tucson on the general side profile, but the former will be less dramatic in detail. Body lines will be smoother and easier with less emphasis on the wheel arches, for example.
However, just like the Tucson, he new Sportage 2022 it will have a roofline sloping backwards, according to the designer. In terms of size, the SUV The South Korean should be slightly longer than the outgoing model to have more space in the cabin. One thing that can be said for sure is that the side mirrors will be positioned slightly lower on the doors rather than at the base of the A-pillar.
It is probably safe to assume that the Fifth-generation Sportage (code name NQ5) or Sportage 2022 it will reflect the engine lineup and technology of the new Tucson. This means that, depending on the region, 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are expected to be available in Europe, along with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 1-liter hybrid. , 6 liter for North. America. A plug-in hybrid powertrain is also expected to join the lineup at a later date.
