It hasn't been long since the Kia Sportage received a minor facelift which we first saw at the Frankfurt Motor Show last September. Clearly the Korean Manufacturer has not been happy with their initial effort, with these first pictures revealing the SUV will be the recipient of another facelift with a debut penned in for the London Motor Show this summer.

The enhancements of the 2009 model year Sportage can be described as subtle at best, we see from these initial photos the slightly redesigned bumper and a number of new color schemes will also be made available for the exterior. The interior will benefit from a number of new instruments including a USB port for linking media devices to the stereo. The three trim packages of XE,XS and Titan will continue to be offered along with the current 2.0-liter petrol and 2.0-liter diesel engines, along with a range topping 2.7-litre V6 petrol. UK Pricing is expected to range from £14,000-£19,500.
