You can stop holding your breath now: Kia has finally released photos and specs on its redesigned bestseller, the Sportage SUV. The vehicle's size has been increased (without pharmaceuticals, no less) both inside and out, with more passenger and cargo room. A new center console is more driver-friendly, and flexible fold-down seating options contribute to increased utility. The available powertrains will be a 2.0 liter four cylinder, a 2.7 liter V6, and a 2.0 liter diesel, all connected to an electronic full-time 4WD system, with the six putting out the best numbers, 175-hp at 6,000 rpm. Production on 60,000 units to be sent to North America begins in October. I simply can't wait.
