KIA has revealed an interior sketch of the cabin of its all-new small SUV. Due to be revealed later in 2019, the new small SUV’s interior makes a bold design statement and has a focus on maximum ease of use.

Trimmed in high-quality materials throughout, the expansive shapes and technical forms of the cabin create a youthful and luxurious vibe.

With chic design details, such as metallic highlights in the air vents and a broad, sweeping dashboard, the cabin also maintains a focus on technology, creating a modern ambience to appeal to young-at-heart, tech-savvy buyers.

The grab-bar on the passenger side of the centre console adds a sporty feel.

The dashboard centres on a new 10.25" touchscreen navigation system providing seamless access to a range of features. The tactile, user-friendly centre console beneath allows certain features – such as ventilation and aircon – to be adjusted easily and safely on-the-move.

KIA’s Sound Mood Lighting technology can alter the cabin’s ambient lighting to suit occupants’ preferences.
