The cat is yet to come out of the bag but at least how this feline is going to look like is certainly out in the market! Yes...you got it right...we're talking about Kia's 1st car for India i.e. SP Concept SUV, which is going to hit Indian roads this summer. Kia Motors India has finally revealed the first sketch of its upcoming 'Made in India' mid-SUV.
Ahead of its India launch, the sketches unveil the exterior design of the car. "Due to be revealed fully in the summer, the new vehicle possesses the space and capabilities of a traditional SUV in a compact package," Kia said releasing the sketches. "The sketches of the upcoming Kia car highlight the inspirational design that Kia is known for and make it stand out amongst its diverse global
portfolio," Kia added.
This mid-SUV is based on the SP concept and the illustrations give a sneak-peak into the much-awaited and anticipated, mid-SUV from Kia Motors.
What do these two sketches reveal and hint at about Kia's SP Concept mid-SUV?
"Kia’s very first product for India is set to flaunt a bold, distinctive and dynamic design; the mid-SUV will come with a wide Tiger nose grille, one of the unique design elements of Kia Motors world-class design philosophy. With a modern and urbane 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," says Kia Motors India.
"The robust design character of a traditional SUV co-exists with sophisticated exterior design details, such as its long hood, a strong, sophisticated character line on the front bumper, and sharp lines pressed into the bodywork. 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," adds Kia
Kia further added, "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."
Made in India. And, Made for India too?
"Manufactured in India for the world, the mid-SUV resonates the design language that is customised for the Indian customers."
Kia Motors India is building a new manufacturing facility in Anantapur District. According to the auto maker, "The manufacturing facility is expected to begin production in the second half of 2019 and produce approximately 300,000 units per year."
