The new 2024 Kia Sportage will reportedly gain numerous upgrades. Some of them will be major, but we don’t have all of the details right now, unfortunately. However, many credible sources are suggesting a redesign, followed by interior refreshments. Thanks to that, Kia will provide a bolder design with new wheels and exterior colors.
The interior should gain more standard amenities and new optional features. Furthermore, the comfort will be better, as Kia plans to deliver new and more upright materials. Under the hood, Kia Sportage will have three engine choices. While the engine lineup remains intact, Kia could provide more power to at least one of the engines.
The upcoming 2024 Kia Sportage will continue to feature one of the most distinctive designs on the market, with a very distinctive appearance. Its grille, which is divided into two parts by a horizontal bar, looks very appealing. This SUV is also easily recognized because of its running daytime lights in the shape of a boomerang.
The DRLs give this SUV a sharper appearance because they are placed closer to the grille. The back section is also expertly designed, with modern taillights and additional black accents. New model will gain serious upgrades, but we are still waiting for spy shots or an official debut.
Kia Sportage Interior Changes
Interior-wise, the 2024 Kia Sportage most likely won’t differ from the current model. Naturally, the company will unveil a classier design. A larger touchscreen and a standard set of technologies including a Wi-Fi hotspot and new USB ports should be on offer. Additionally, a wireless charging pad and a powerful audio system are available as options, along with a digital instrument cluster.
The Sportage SUV has a significant number of standard safety features, which is important to note. This model comes with blind-spot monitors, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and other modern driver-assistance aids. New Sportage should deliver more upright materials and more standard features. New trim levels are not planned, but new optional packages should be on offer.
Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid Specs
The next 2024 Kia Sportage will offer three engine options. Everything starts with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces over 200 hp. An eight-speed automatic transmission is once again available. Kia also provides two hybrid drivetrains.
