Kia Motors India has given us a sneak peak into what the upcoming Kia SUV is going to look like on the inside. The company released a few sketches online which showcase a rather classy looking interior design.
It was almost a month ago that the South Korean car maker revealed images of what the exterior of the car could look like. Clearly, Kia is building up the excitement very well.
As per the sketches released online, the interiors of the Kia SUV concept showcase an organised and clean dashboard and air-conditioning vents at each end. The most eye-catching feature sits at the centre of the dashboard; a 10.25-inch display, which in all probability is a full touch panel that supports Android Auto and possibly Apple CarPlay as well.
There are visible wooden inserts blend well with the overall design of the dashboard. Another sketch also seems to reveal the SUV’s reverse camera feature.
The air-con controls have been nestled smartly beneath the central ac vents which also comes with a digital display and a knob to control the air temperature and the single-zone auto climate control system.
The three-spoke steering wheel has a modern look with subtle embellishment of brushed aluminum and houses all the touch controls to toggle music, take phone calls and even cruise control. A pair of paddle shifters can also been seen peeking from behind the steering spokes.
The instrument cluster is partially hidden which is why its tough to decipher what the final look will be like although it has an analogue tachometer and speedometer with an MID (multi-information-display) sitting in between.
The door handle and arm rest seems to have what looks like leather upholstery on the door arm rest. The door is also seen housing controls to the side view mirrors and windows.
The sketches also show an automatic gearbox with a knob adjacent to it to switch driving modes. Traction control seems to be a standard feature as well.
Push-button start seems to be a part of the package as well. Other additions include hill decent control, park assist, ventilated seats, dynamic steering modes, and what looks like a switch for a differential lock (which means it possibly may get AWD, in combination with the driving modes).
Bundled behind the gearbox is the electronic parking brake and dual cup holders.
