Although wearing a heavy camouflage, it was still spotted to feature new tail lights and headlights. Especially, the headlights receive a completely new design featuring 4-point LED DRLs that look pretty similar to the Porsche’s.

Moving to the rear, the tail lamps look much glossier than those of the current units, having LED borders around and dotted strips at the center.
Additionally, the all-new Kia Sportage 2019 facelift is expected to get fresh rear and front bumpers, more options for wheels and a redesigned interior with upgraded materials and decors.

When it comes to the engines, the facelift is predicted to be powered by a naturally-aspirated turbocharged powertrain which is likely a 2.4, 2.0 or 1.6L, maybe along with a 2.0L turbodiesel or a 1.7L unit. Options for the transmissions still include a 6-speed automatic, 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
In the Philippines, the Kia Sportage price is slightly increased due to the new excise taxes. Find below the latest price list for the Kia Sportage 2018:
