Kia Motors will soon be launched in the Indian market later this year. Their first vehicle to be launched in the Indian market will be an SUV that will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur and the Nissan Kicks. The all-new SUV will be based on the KIA SP Concept, which was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. Kia has been testing the all-new car under a heavy camouflage on the Indian roads for a long time now. The latest spy pictures of the vehicle show more details about the upcoming car.
The new pictures on Throttle-Blips show the pictures of the cabin that reveals that the upcoming car will come loaded with features. The new pictures clearly show the dashboard of the all-new Kia SUV, which is yet to get a production name. The new pictures reveal that the vehicle gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The infotainment screen is well hidden behind the camouflage but a piano black finish can be spotted around the screen of the infotainment. The steering has also been spotted and it seems to get a nice leather wrap. The door trim gets some chrome and silver accents that look quite good.
The car also gets red brake calipers that look nice with the alloy wheels. The vehicle also gets some inserts in the headlamps and the pictures also show the turn indicators placed beside the mesh grille of the vehicle.
Earlier this year, Kia showcased the Kia SP Signature Concept at the Seoul Motor Show and it was a more near-production version than the Kia SP concept showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in India. The SP Signature Concept looks very similar to the SP Concept showcased in India and gets a wide grille with sleek DRLs. The main headlamp cluster of the vehicle is located lower in the bumper of the car like most of the modern cars. However, there are many design highlights that will definitely not appear on the production version of the car. For example, the front lamps merge into the tiger nose grille, which looks quite futuristic. The grille also gets integrated Daytime Running Lamps (DRL).
The engine options of the upcoming Kia SUV will get a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 140 Bhp. We can also expect a 1.5-litre diesel engine. At a later date, Kia may also bring in a more powerful version of the vehicle. Currently, Kia plans to launch a car every six months in the Indian market after the launch of their first car in the Indian market.
