Second largest car company from South Korea, Kia Motors will present new compact SUV in coming days. KIA SP SUV Concept will be presented at the Auto Show in New Delhi. Auto Show is starting on February 7th, and this concept will take a stand in Hall 7 at the India Expo Mart. Location of this promotion and the trailer where is said that the KIA SP inspired by “Indian heritage” are telling us that the upcoming SUV will be released only in India.
That is a new territory for the Korean manufacturer, considering that the show will start in a less than a week. KIA’s president Han-Woo Park said: “Everyone at Kia motors is extremely proud for taking our first steps into one of the world’s largest car markets. We are here to build more than just a good car, we aim to set a new standard in the Indian auto industry. We will provide customers with world-class products”.
Kia SP SUV Concept Exterior Look
As for images that came from the manufacturer the SP SUV will probably be based on a new Hyundai Creta that will come out somewhere around 2020. KIA SP is coming with five or seven seats, just like Creta. However, this little crossover is developed by advanced technology and designed by KIA’s design language.
Kia SP SUV Interior
The concept is described as “stylish and bold” combined with some breakthrough technology and sophisticated beauty. The futuristic theme inside the cabin looks great and comes with latest features. The dashboard is user-friendly with a nice interface. The interior is spacious and it works with dual arena conditioning system. This is the word of the company. Unfortunately, we don’t have any images of the interior.
Kia SP SUV Concept Engine Rumors
Specification of the newly KIA SP will be official during the Auto Show in New Delhi. So far, the speculations are that the Kia will come with a new 1.5-liter diesel engine. Also, some indicating 1.6-liter gasoline drivetrain. If the rumors are true the 1.6-liter engine will come with very good fuel economy. Both engines will be available with manual and automatic 6-speed transmission. We also expect plug-in Hybrid and electric models as well in near future.
Kia SP SUV Concept Release Date and Price
The KIA SP SUV concept will hit the car markets in the second half of 2019. The production of this vehicle is happening in KIA’s new factory in Anantapur in India. We expect that this new Kia SP SUV will come with a competitive and fair price.
However, apart from this SP SUV concept, KIA will show 15 other vehicles at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo. Having in mind that the full specification will arrive during the Auto Show in a few days, we cannot provide further information. Info about the price, optional features and design will become available next week.
