Kia has been rumoured for a new flagship SUV for several years now, and it appears that the rumour has now turned into reality. The model is expected to feature more luxurious materials and technologies, as well as some significant improvements. It will be powered by a turbocharged, 3.3-litre V6 petrol engine that offers 246 hp and 385 Nm. The power will be sent to the all-wheel drive system and taken to all four wheels with a dual clutch automatic gearbox.
Kia Motors to introduce a luxury SUV and mini-minivan
Last month, Kia Motors released a teaser image for the new premium SUV that will be presented at the Detroit Motor Show. It seems that the model will be called the Kia Cerato – and while it appears to be a crossover, it will probably be a full-size SUV. It will be launched in 2017 and will be built in South Korea. Kia is also preparing a new flagship crossover in its bid to compete with the likes of BMW and Jaguar. This new model will be called the Kia Stinger.
