The all-new Kia Sportage will be makings its global debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show on 15 September 2015, Kia Motors have revealed.

Entering its fourth-generation, the all-new Kia Sportage features a bold, progressive design, with the vehicle's designers creating a sense of power and agility from every angle.

The first official exterior images have been published, showing how the Sportage creates visual harmony out of the tension between sharp, defined feature lines and smooth surfacing.

The vehicle's designers have created a sense of power and agility from every angle, and the 'face' of the all-new Sportage represents the biggest change to the car's design, with the car's headlamps no longer integrated with the grille for the new model, instead sweeping back along the outer edges of the more sharply-detailed bonnet and bolder wheel arches.

The Sportage's lower, wider 'tiger-nose' grille adds more volume to the lower half of the Sportage's face, resulting in a more imposing appearance and a more stable-looking stance, and yet still remains immediately recognisable as a Kia.

The design of the new Sportage has been led by Kia's European design studio in Frankfurt, Germany, with input from the brand's Namyang, Korea and Irvine, California design centres.
