    Moving from a technical domain to a subjective one, new Sportage is designed and styled in Germany which was incorporated from Kia's studios in Korea. The overall design has gained a fresh and expensive look with contrasting sharp edges and smooth surfaces that were specifically motivated by modern fighter jets. The headlights and grille on the front are upgraded that now sits on the high side of the bonnet rather than integrating into the grille. Kia's signature tiger-nose grille at the lower edge is coloured in silver and the foglights finish the overall styling with a large cluster and the side view of the Sportage is retained in its traditional form. The lights are now slightly high than the grille with top fenders. One might notice that the front design somewhat resembles that of the Alfa Romeo 4C and the overall appearance strikes similar to recent Peugeot products. The wheel arches are more noticeable than before and have a sharp line now which is running along the side doors. With others evaluation, Kia says that the rear view of the car is motivated by 2013 Kia Provo with sturdy lines running horizontally across the boot lid. The reversing lights and indicator are now changed and is lowered down than before.
