Now the Australian arm of the brand announced the launch of sales of “SUV” with this event the publication of photos of different versions.
In the process of restyling the Sportage got a new bumper. On the front of the redesigned “slots” for fog lights and added a decorative insert over the entire width, and the grille got a new “texture”. In addition, was expanded range of colors of the body and new wheel designs the dimension of 16-19 inches.
In the car, virtually nothing has changed – screen infotainment system lost frame, but kept the sizes from 7 to 8 inches depending on the version. Slightly updated steering wheel and added new materials.
Update of technical filling depends on the geography of sales. The Australian market received the updated Sportage eight-speed automatic and diesel volume of 2.0 liters.
