Photos claiming to show the 2017 Kia Sportage have leaked online.

Courtesy of Korean blog Auto Tribune, the photos show a pretty radical redesign for the Kia crossover which falls in line with what we have seen already in teaser images. A new distinct look will help Kia distance itself from its corporate cousin, the Tucson.

Under the hood, the Tuscon’s new turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is expected, hooked up to a dual-clutch transmission.

The new 2017 Kia Sportage is expected to be unveiled in Korea in the next few days, while its international debut is set for the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    Wow, that is quite the change in styling. Unfortunately, it's looking more like a Nissan Juke. I think I'd choose a Hyundai Tucson over this.
