It was about a month ago when Kia premiered the fifth-generation Sportage with its radical makeover and now the compact crossover is back to reveal its technical specifications. Bear in mind we’re dealing with the global / KDM version featuring the longer wheelbase as Europe will be getting a shorter-wheelbase model. You can easily tell this is the LWB by looking at the size of the rear doors.
Speaking of size, the stretched 2022 Sportage is 4660 millimeters (183.5 inches) long, 1865 mm (73.4 in) wide, and 1660 mm (65.3 in) tall, with the wheelbase measuring 2755 mm (108.4 in). According to Kia, these proportions along with the improved packaging brought by the new platform give the compact crossover segment-leading headroom, legroom, and cargo capacity (637 liters).
