KIA's Sportage is one of the most popular crossovers on the road - and now we're told the new one is due here in January as pictures of the latest model are made public.

There will also be a GT Line model - pictured - in the spring.

The fourth generation of the car, described as 'all-new' will debut at Frankfurt on the 15th of September.

The biggest change in looks is how the headlamps sit higher on the bonnet and stretch back quite a bit.

The interior is also expected to represent a step-up in quality of design and materials.

While a brand new 4cyl petrol will debut in it, there is little doubt the upgraded 1.7-litre CRDi diesel (113bhp) will be the one in demand here. There are two versions of the 2-litre diesel (134bhp, 181bhp) as well.
