2020 Kia Sportage






I guess it is time for the Kia Sportage to get its mid-cycle revisions.

Nothing drastic. They almost 83 000 of them last year. Which is fine. Not great, but fine I guess.
So changes are small for the new year.

The front end is new. With a surprisingly slightly smaller grille. (The new car is the red one)
Smaller LED lights in the back.

Inside, I can't see anything new. Except for a bit more silver trim on the steering wheel and a slightly larger screen.

Engines are the same. Either a 2.4 Liter or a 2.0 Liter turbo.
With a 6 speed auto...

At least they are doing away with the cartoon smiley face. They almost made it too cute and realized that didn't work too well. I so prefer the "truckette" look of the RAV4 better.

This is a big segment and Kia better have something good, and slightly bigger, ready for the all new one that should be out in a year or so.

The pre-facelift actually looks much better.. and could Kia please stop putting the turn signals in the rear bumpers? Just noticed the new Forte has them there as well. :(

This would had looked better if they totally redesigned the 9 year old greenhouse. It debuted in 2010 as a 2011 model. That greenhouse is outdated.

The exterior looks good. It's a stylish crossover. However, the interior is a total mess. After owning a Tesla, I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to this kind of clutter. And if my last Sonata rental car was any indication, a thousand cut lines and buttons are just places for fingernail clippings and skin dust to settle into.

I hope like Kia Tusket and Telluride have a boxy sh as pe appearance when they redesign the Sportage's greenhouse it looks like that too.

Ok.

I'll bite: what in the world is a Kia Tusket?

Prefer the more aggressive looking front on the earlier model. The refresh looks busier, but somehow more conservative.
