Thumbs up Kia Sportage SUV - preview

Kia has released the first images of the next-generation Sportage SUV model, which will debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and will showcase a completely new design with a more modern and dynamic formal language. It will go on sale later this year.

Hyundai needs to learn a lot from his little brother.What a vehicle!! Simply Beautifull .This is based on the same Hyundai's new Tuscon platform.

Gotta say this!Kia has made a big change in its line up with the new Kia Forte (sedan & coupe) and the totally redesigned Sorento & now with the Sportage! It's definitely going to help the company with one aspect of resale value of its cars, which takes the fun out of owning these fairly reliable machines.

I do see some semblance to the Mitsubishi Outlander, especially the rear window design.

Thumbs down Hyundai needs to learn

The only reason i have been bashing Hyundia is because ,i have seen the new Tuscon in the Dubai autoshow in Dec 09. Its as usual mix of everything and end result is as usual "CONFUSED LOOK" The sportage will definately wipe out Tuscon.
