Design and Features

As mentioned above, please watch the video linked below for a full in-depth exploration of the exterior design and differences. There are no major changes to the outside of the Sportage for 2024, with the exception of one element. With the newly standard Projector LED headlamps for 2024, all of the units will see a small, yet noticeable, Amber Accent light that gives it some semblance to the Telluride. Seeing as most people like the ambers, nice touch Kia!
