Kia has released new pictures of its 2016 Sportage SUV, this time giving us a clear look at the car’s interior before the real thing is shown to the world in the coming weeks at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The redesigned interior follows the reworked exterior too, taking in more modern cues from Kia's most recent models. As we can see here, the all-black interior has leather seats, as well as a flat bottomed steering wheel like that found in the new Optima. The dashboard too, is dressed in black that's either matte or has a glossy piano black finish in some areas, with bits of chrome or metalized surrounds placed strategically. There are also aluminium pedals.
Toward the centre of dashboard, there’s a central infotainment display but despite this the 2016 Sportage’s interior has quite a number of buttons below that. Perhaps Kia isn’t onboard with the minimalistic approach some other automakers have taken, opting for virtual controls over physical ones in most cases.
The spec we see in the pictures is from the GT line of the all-new Sportage, which surely would add some premium touches over the base car. Exactly what those touches are isn’t clear at this point, and we’ll have to wait for the full unveil for that.
