While the serial version has not received the official name, but the concept model has become known as a model of KIA SP Signature. On sale a new crossover should appear in the second half of 2019.

KIA does not lag behind Hyundai’s own “brother” and is preparing many new products for the near future. The first and most interesting can be a budgetary sports crossover, built on the basis of Hyundai Creta. A preliminary prototype was presented back in March 2019 at the Seoul Motor Show. The company is currently conducting final road tests before debuting this summer.

It is assumed that the crossover will receive a corporate design of the KIA brand with a recognizable radiator grille, bumper with integrated fog lamps and new head optics. Despite the camouflage, you can see the alloy wheels of the original design, LED optics and a spoiler on the back door.

Under the hood will be offered 1.4-liter turbo 140 horsepower. Together with him they will offer a robotic transmission on seven steps and only front-wheel drive. Also in the engine line will offer a 1.6-liter aspirated, capable of developing up to 123 horsepower and a 1.4-liter diesel engine for 90 “horses.”

The premiere will be held this summer. Provisional price in India from 1 to 1.6 million rupees
