Kia Motors India has revealed the first sketch of its upcoming mid-SUV manufactured in India. Based on the SP concept, the illustrations give a sneak-peak into the much awaited and anticipated, mid-SUV from Kia Motors.
The mid-SUV will come with a wide Tiger nose grille. With a modern and urban design, based on the 2018 Kia SP Concept unveiled at the Auto Expo, the SUV will stand apart from rivals by matching the unique preferences and needs of customers who are young at heart. Its strong shoulder line, matched with a glasshouse which tapers towards the rear of the car, as well as rear bumper with a metallic muffler effect, lends the compact SUV an air of understated sportiness.
Byung Chul Juh, Head of Kia Styling at Kia Motors Corporation, said, “We have created a car which stands out everywhere, from the city to the countryside. Its robust yet sporty design will be matched by a wide range of features and technologies that are universally suited to younger buyers in markets around the world. Our new mid-SUV is a proposition that no other car in its class will match.”
The new compact SUV brings a sense of luxury to its exterior design with LED headlamps which extend over the radiator grille. The lamps feature a three-dimensional light graphic and a highly technical diamond pattern at their trailing edges. The design is also echoed in the rear LED lamps, the company said.
