HOW MUCH?

Price un­changed The fourth-gen­er­a­tion Sportage is get­ting close now, with pro­duc­tion­ready cars do­ing cold­weather testing be­yond the Arc­tic Cir­cle. Heavy cam­ou­flage cov­ers a body with sim­i­lar pro­por­tions to the cur­rent Kia star but ev­ery­thing points to in­spi­ra­tion from the KX3 con­cept. That means a bolder nose and bon­net with, in­side, a huge step for­ward on qual­ity and more youth­ful de­sign work. It’s timed for the fi­nal months of this year.
