The Kia Sportage's first redesign in 11 years will debut in September at the Paris auto show.
It will go on sale in Europe in November and reach US showrooms in December.
The 2005 Sportage SUV was developed on a unibody platform that is shared with the 2005 Hyundai Tucson.
The previous-generation Sportage was a body-on-frame-design. Kia is a subsidiary of Hyundai.
