The fourth generation Kia Sportage is here

The all-new Kia Sportage with Sales Executive Mario Burke after a ‘Test Drive’

It was introduced during a ‘soft’ launch by local dealers McEnearneyQuality Inc. (MQI) Friday March 11.

The introduction came one week after the new vehicle had made it’s debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

With a metaphorical T-square, Kia goes into meticulous detail about the next-generation Sportage, starting with its dimensional changes relative to the old model. 

The wheelbase stretches an additional 1.6 inches, but the C-pillars are 2.4 inches thinner. The rear overhang is reduced by 0.4 inch while 0.8 inch is added to the nose, but the panoramic sunroof is 4.1 inches longer than the outgoing aperture. 

The outgoing Sportage was reasonably fun to drive, and the new one should improve on the experience with the incorporation of a multilink independent rear suspension on all models. Torsional rigidity is up by 39 percent and a stiffer body makes for a better base for the suspension to do its stuff.
