In a recent discussion on first-quarter sales performance among Asian carmakers in America, Hyundai and Kia received attention for their challenging situation. For instance, Toyota is inching closer to overtaking General Motors as the sales leader, with over 565,000 units sold, a 20% increase, compared to GM’s 594,000, a 1.5% decline.

American Honda Division saw a 17% rise, reaching almost 334,000 units. The Nissan Group also experienced a 7.2% surge, selling 252,735 vehicles in the first three months of the year. Following them are Hyundai and Kia, positioned between Subaru (153,000, +6.7%), Mazda, and Mitsubishi.

Kia has also introduced the K9 sedan to select international markets and initiated the teaser campaign for the first-ever Tasman mid-size pickup truck. However, for digital car content creators, this isn’t enough. They eagerly anticipate the redesigned 2025 Kia Sportage compact crossover SUV, even if only in speculative designs.

One such channel, Halo Oto on YouTube, offers automotive information alongside virtual designs. They’ve produced new CGI concepts for the refreshed Sportage, showcasing exterior and interior perspectives. These designs draw inspiration from the latest photos and updates to the Sportage and Carnival models, envisioning a new front fascia with distinctive LED running lights, a redesigned grille, and a revised bumper.

Inside, changes are less subtle, enhancing the modern layout with potentially a revised dashboard and a larger central touchscreen. What are your thoughts on these concepts?
