In China, the brand Kia is considered more athletic than us. Therefore, designers have tried to combine or rather, peep characteristic crossover proportions with elements inherent in sports cars – the ascending line of glazing, muscular wheel arches, rear spoiler, etc. Branded Kia grille in the style of “tiger’s mouth” got a new frame of matt chrome. In the design of the headlights is used LED technology.
