The new model will stay under the Sportage in Kia’s SUV range and will discuss its underpinnings with Hyundai’s new global sub-Tucson crossover, which was last spied in Jan.
This latest Sonic prototype, grabbed at closer range, is using a little bit less hide than the car spotted in the snowfall in February. We can now see the condition of the car’s front lights, its wheel arch guards, the LED rear taillight visuals, and its quick front and rear overhangs.
Power, at least in Europe, is comprehended ahead from a choice of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Front-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive might be offered as nicely.

If that’s the situation, the crossover won’t go on sale locally until early 2018, and will likely be pitched against the Honda HR-V, Holden Trax, Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR.
