Kia has published sketches for a new crossoverMay 14, 2019
The new model of the company can get the name Tusker. The debut is scheduled for the end of this year, and Kia states that it will be the world’s first small crossover company. South Korea will be the first market to receive a car in the second half of 2019, and other regions will soon follow.
Just a few hours after several “speculative” images of the upcoming small crossover Kia were published, the South Korean brand released the official sketches of the novelty. Originally introduced in 2018 as a concept SP, then earlier this year under the name Signature, which showed a more “production” look at the crossover, the city-oriented crossover Kia is approaching its world premiere.
Published a couple of minutes ago, the sketches are far from innovative in fact, since the concept presented already looked almost ready for the start of production.
Thin lights, which we have so often seen in the latest production models of the South Korean brand, will correspond to the edges of the false smile tiger grille to give the crossover, which has not yet been named, an interesting and young look.
Vertical three-point LED strips in the front bumper probably serve as fog lights, as daytime running lights are built into the top of the main headlights and have a large width. Judging by the volume of tires, a small novelty, it seems, rides on large alloy wheels, but you know how things are with the design sketches – they usually all exaggerate to make the car look better than it actually is.
The back of the crossover is barely similar to the one in the Signature concept, and we especially like the big taillights connected by a wide chrome rod that passes over the Kia badge. These twin tailpipes are probably designed for decoration only – a trend that cannot die soon enough. There is silver protection to make the car more reliable off-road.
