Sharing underpinnings with Hyundai Venue, Kia’s upcoming QYI-Codenamed compact SUV will rival against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The near-production model is expected to be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, Delhi
Kia Motors has started building its name in the Indian market with its quality SUV like Kia Seltos. The Seltos has been introduced recently and people can’t stop praising its overall quality and road presence. However, in a short span, the company shall be increasing the price of the Seltos that comes in the price bracket of Rs. 9.69 Lakh to Rs. 12.79 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Kia Seltos has already been placed among some prominent rivals like MG Hector, Tata Harrier, and Hyundai Creta. Now, the company aims to put up its player in the compact SUV segment. The sub-4-meter SUV codenamed QYI will be based on Hyundai Venue.
The prototype that was earlier spotted in South Korea reveals the signature Tiger Nose grille in the front, just like all Kia vehicles. Accompanying the grille, we would see a regular headlamp set as the Hyundai venue. The front bumper shall get fog lamps and the rear comprises of a wraparound horizontal taillights. The test mule also suggests the final stage of testing with 16-inch wheels and a distinctive window line.
We are expecting the interiors to have a lot of differentiating factors compared to Hyundai Venue. We might get a premium feel in the QYI interiors. We would love to see the latest enhancements such as big size infotainment touchscreen system with Kia's UVO Connect, panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, and automatic climate control, and much more.
