Kia Shows Off Interior Design of Upcoming New Small SUV
Following the revelation of the exterior design of its new small SUV, Kia Motors is now showing off the interior sketch of the vehicle's cabin. To be revealed soon, the new small SUV's interior "makes a bold design statement and has a focus on maximum ease of use."
The cabin has a youthful and luxurious vibe thanks to the use of expansive shapes and technical forms. With metallic highlights in the air vents and a broad, sweeping dashboard, the cabin also focuses on technology, creating a modern ambience to appeal to young-at-heart, tech-savvy buyers. Adding a sporty feel to the cabin is a grab-bar on the passenger side of the dashboard.
On the center of the dashboard is a 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system that supposedly provides seamless access to a range of features. The tactile, user-friendly center console beneath allows certain features--such as ventilation and air conditioning--to be adjusted easily and safely on-the-move. In addition, Kia's Sound Mood Lighting technology can alter the cabin's ambient lighting to suit occupants' preferences.
"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," said Byung Chul Juh, head of Kia Styling at Kia Motors Corporation. "Our newest model will offer greater pleasure and satisfaction to our customers, with a premium-quality interior that benefits from sophisticated design details."
Kia's first global small SUV will go on sale in Korea in the second half of 2019, with sales in other regions to follow soon after.
