Kia has released sketches of its upcoming baby SUV’s interior, revealing the newcomer will be offered with a 10,25-inch touchscreen.
The latest images have been released after the Korean firm earlier showed off sketches of the vehicle’s exterior (see below). Although the automaker has yet to announce the new model's name, it's expected to wear the Tusker badge.
Kia claims the new model’s cabin will be trimmed in “high-quality materials throughout”, with the design creating a “youthful and luxurious vibe”. Look closely and you’ll notice the metallic highlights in the air vents as well as the grab-bar on the passenger side of the centre console.
Front and centre, though, is the aforementioned 10,25-inch touchscreen navigation system, which Kia promises will provide “seamless access to a range of features”.
“We have focused on designing a cabin unlike any other in the small SUV segment, with a greater sense of depth and richness to the design. Our newest model will offer greater pleasure and satisfaction to our customers, with a premium-quality interior that benefits from sophisticated design details,” said Byung Chul Juh, head of styling.
Described as a “new global small SUV”, the model is scheduled to hit the market in Korea in the second half of 2019, with sales in other regions to “follow soon after”.
Ryan has spent most of his career in online media, writing about everything from sport to politics and other forms of crime. But his true passion – reignited by a 1971 Austin Mini Mk3 still tucked lifeless in a dark corner of his garage – is of the automotive variety.
