Despite the relatively small sales of the mid-size SUV Kia Mohave / Borrego in some markets, the automaker is preparing a new version. So far there is little data about it.

Judging by the “spy” photos of the novelty, which appeared at the disposal of our editorial staff a couple of minutes ago, the next generation model Borrego is being tested in winter weather. Looking much more modern than its predecessor, released back in 2008, the new product has a more square front part with a vertical false radiator grille, which is surrounded by large headlights with characteristic vertical daytime running lights. Below we see the triangular air intakes with LED fog lamps.

The updated Mohave / Borrego has side steps and a streamlined body that seems to have already received its serial look. The SUV also has an evolutionary back end with a more angular line. It is difficult to make out additional body parts, but we can see a roof rack and alloy wheels with six spokes.

There is also a suggestion that the new Telluride crossover, which debuted at the North American International Auto Show last month, will also affect the new product.

At the moment, little is known about the technical equipment of the updated Mohave / Borrego – now, the South Korean version of the model is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine, which develops 256 hp. (560 Nm). It is connected to the 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.

It remains unclear whether the new Borrego will retain its attention to off-road capabilities, since its predecessor was positioned as a luxury car capable of traveling along a beaten track. In any case, in the domestic market of Korea, the current version of the model costs from 37 055 dollars
