The second generation Kia Sportage is still alive in China, a facelifted variant has just been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 159.800 yuan and ends at 196.800 yuan. The rather extensive facelift includes a new grille, new headlights, new rear lights and new bumpers.
Kia sells a very new Sportage in the rest of the world but not yet in China. The old Sportage gets a face lift first before Kia brings in the new car to be sold next to the old one. All car makers do that in China, when it still sells they just can’t trow it away. The old Sportage gets a new front that brings it in line with the newer Kia’s.
