2022 Kia Sportage: the rear end...



The 2022 Kia Sportage will be, once again, closely related to the Hyundai Tucson.
On the photos above, it even looks like they could be sharing the same glass part of the rear hatch.

Otherwise, it looks like Kia is very proud of their new logo. First, it is rather strange to see a final company logo on a camouflaged car. And second.. that size. This will end up being larger than the font on the licence plates below it.
The lower placement of the rear plate also makes the whole rear end look rather lumpy. Not as dynamic as the Tucson.

We'll see...

Has a similar style to the European Stonic.

I guess back window wipers aren't a "Thing" anymore. That must be a super duper wind deflector or allow that. If not, I'd never consider these brands. I'll try to remember to look when they hit the streets if the back windows stay clean.

Looks a little minivan like with all that empty surface area. Maybe it will look a little better with a plate installed. The new logo is WAY too large, but overall I like the new more modern font and design.

I heard a rumour there will be a full EV version of the Sportage. I am hoping it's accurate!

Anonymous @ 3:06 - the rear wiper for the Tucson is up at the top under the spoiler rather than at the bottom of the glass and the same seems true for the Sportage--it's not that they don't exist.

I know it's no huge deal, but I think the new plus-size Kia logo looks obnoxious. it's not even an improvement. Why do these corporations waste millions on stuff like that?

Where would the word"Sportage" go back there? That's a really huge logo back there.
