China has just announced a new version of Sportage named Ace at the Guangzhou exhibition with many blends of Seltos and Sorento.
Kia Sportage Ace in China is developed on the Hyundai ix35 platform, different from the global version. Vehicles with length x width x height are 4,530 x 1,850 x 1,635 (mm) respectively, wheelbase reaches 2,640 mm. Compared to the old model, the Sportage Ace 2021 is 70 mm longer.
The front of the car is designed square, quite prominent with the trademark tiger nose grille, but painted in glossy black and has a giant size. This mesh panel is seamlessly connected with hidden side headlights. The design turn signal lights protrude outward to give a bold impression to the overall front of the car.
GT Line models will be distinguished by a few orange details such as the front spoiler border, the side splint rim and the top edge of the rear diffuser.
The bodywork, the Sportage Ace, brings a more familiar look when the windows and doors are kept the same as the original SUV, only below is the appearance of new wheels with All-Terrain tires. The rear lights seem to be designed from a combination of inspiration by Telluride and Sorento. Also appearing here is a large Sportage logo, dual exhaust pipes and a diffuser behind the orange light.
The interior of theSportage Ace 2021has not been revealed by Kia, but it is likely to remain the same as before, including a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.5-inch touchscreen in the center.
In addition, the performance of the car may be similar to the Hyundai Tucson group.
Kia Sportage Ace 2021 “made in China” has not been announced price yet.
