The assertion of the new visual identity is made right from the start with the personality of the new grille across the entire width of the front, giving it a volume that is outlined by the headlights and by daytime running lights in the shape of a boomerang above the pronounced bumper. If the profile refers to agility, the rear again shows muscle in the bumper below the ‘sharp’ lights in a transformation that debuts the option for the black roof as a second color.
The interior displays between the ventilation outlets a driver-oriented dashboard with a large curved touchscreen designed to offer the features of its technology in the most intuitive way possible. With the promise of high-quality materials, Kia has designed space for front occupants to feel like a shell of functionality and versatility.
