Kia Motors in Korea has revealed sketches previewing its upcoming all-new small SUV.
Set for a “late 2019 launch” in Australia, the small SUV is positioned as Kia’s first ‘global’ small SUV as the Niro and Stonic (available in overseas markets) have so far been ruled out for Australia.
The styling points to a sporty youth-focused shape, similar to Toyota’s C-HR with which it will no doubt compete. It clearly shares some signature Kia design points with the embedded grille, angular rear lights and pumped wheelarches.
The styling seems to have not strayed far from the SP Concept, which – for better or worse – looks like a downsized Sportage.
