The European version of Kia's fifth-generation Sportage was presented ahead of its international debut next week at the IAA Munich Motor Show. The new crossover is built exclusively for Europe, and while it appears very identical to the worldwide model shown in early July, it is 133 mm (5.2 inches) smaller.

It's about the same dimensions as the Tiguan short-wheelbase (4,509 mm/177.5-inches), which was also developed particularly for the European market. Kia claims that the style, technology, and powertrains were all created with European buyers in the heart.

The European edition of the 2022 Sportage has the same dramatic front fascia as the global model, although being shorter. That implies a grille that connects the brand's contemporary Tiger Nose grille to the Matrix LED headlights' unique LED DRLs, which form a solid border.

Kia is now selling a black roof on the Sportage in Europe, which helps to emphasize the crossover's unique design features. Customers will be able to choose between 17-, 18-, or 19-inch alloy wheels in a variety of styles, colors, and trims. The 2022 Sportage's inside is likewise striking, with a large, curved 12.3-inch infotainment screen.

Meanwhile, an incorporated controller allows users a choice of ways to engage with it. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with the newest complete thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal screen for clear visuals has been installed behind the steering wheel.

Due to over-the-air updates that maintain all of the infotainment up to date, users will be able to view maps on the screen and always know it contains the most up-to-date facts. Second-row passengers will get 996 mm (39.21 inches) of legroom and 998 mm (39.29 inches) of headroom, despite the vehicle's reduced exterior dimensions. Behind the back seats, owners will be able to store 591 liters (20.8 cubic feet) of stuff.

Furthermore, Kia is providing a variety of drivetrains to European consumers, including a plug-in hybrid, a hybrid, a mild hybrid, and a diesel. A 1.6-liter T-GDI motor and a 66.9-kW permanent magnet traction electric engine are combined with a 13.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack in the PHEV variant. It has a total output of 261 horsepower (265 PS/195 kW).

Meanwhile, the hybrid variant generates 226 horsepower (230 PS/169 kW) with the same T-GDI motor and a 44.2 kW electric engine with a 1.49 kWh battery. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder T-GDI motor, which can produce 147 horsepower (150 PS/110 kW) or 177 hp (180 PS/132 kW) in the mild-hybrid variant, can also be used.

For the 1.6-liter, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is provided, as is a six-speed manual gearbox for all models. Stop-and-Go technology comes as equipment on all European versions. Kia offers several driving modes in the new Sportage. The new Kia Sportage also has Electronic Controlled Suspension, which changes damping control on the run to keep the car as sporty, comfortable, and competent as possible.

The N3 platform, according to Kia, is meant to be robust and lightweight, enhancing handling and making the SUV especially safer. It also has modern safety features including front collision warning and adaptive cruise control, which utilizes navigation data to assist maintain the Sportage at a safe pace if it detects a steep turn ahead. Intelligent Speed Assist adjusts your cruising speed intelligently when the speed limit increases.

The new Kia Sportage 2022 will go on sale in the United Kingdom early next year, according to Kia. Prices will be released closer to the event.
