The 2016 / 2017 Kia Sportage has been spied undergoing testing near the Arctic Circle.

Looking instantly recognizable, the crossover has a familiar shape but adopts a new front fascia with revised headlights and a more upright grille. We can also see longer rear doors and a heavily camouflaged rear end with wraparound taillights.

Under the hood, we can expect an assortment of new and improved petrol and diesel engines. Nothing is official but options could include a 1.2-liter T-GDi four-cylinder with approximately 132 bhp (98 kW), a 1.6-liter T-GDI with 204 bhp (152 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque and a 2.0-liter T-GDI with 245 bhp (182 kW).
