2011 Kia Sportage

Kia is going to remake the current Sportage for the 2011 model year. First prototypes are already tested on the strees of S. Korea.

The model will look a lot more modern and sportier!! Check it out:

Yuck!

It's a little hard to tell....given the "disguise"....but it looks like one of the Mazda "CUV's" (i.e. 5-series, etc.). Granted, this is the current-trend in car design, but I prefer my trucks "old-school" (read body-on-frame), not uni-body.

Looks like the new Sportage might even be built on the Forte-body.

I think I'll stick with my '02. Otherwise, get an '09 (or '10) while you can!

Just my 0.02....sorry....Hey Kia, wise-up!

Question 2011

The 2011 model doesn't have a lot of genuine sexy style, just sort of
bodaious looking. We just bought a new 09'. Curious to how long
Kia has been putting so many Composite or Plastic parts attached to the
engine, ie the valve cover?

Yeah I have to agree Yuck! I don't even like the current model year. The current ones look like CRV's . Think we'll just stick with our 06!

Half the Cabin Size?

We carry STUFF - and lots of it all the time.
I pull up anywhere and start unloading and people are
shocked to see the amount we can put in our 05 Sportage.
Since our milage is getting up there and totally enjoy the Sportage
we would consider getting another one but if it's going to be half
the cabin size - we may have to consider something else!
Too Bad!

I agree on the Mazda-ish look, it looks like a CX-7 styling through the disguise. Guess time will tell. I love my '09 Sportage. If it ends up looking anything like the new Hyundai Tucson, it's gonna be one sharp looking SUV IMHO

new redesigned Sportage....We may be in the market for the new Sorento, ours is an 03 model bought in 02 and we have had very good luck with it. We also like the redesign of the Hyundia Tucson but I just saw pics of the new redesigned Sportage up on autoblog.com. these aren't mule pictures but a real photo. To me its a real looker with new LED DRL's. If you go up there you will have to scroll down and over a couple of pages.
