It consists of a petrol engine with an output 103 horsepower and 43-horsepower electric motor. Also, according to the photos, the car will receive a new grille, new body and interesting design.

In general, the model almost completely repeats the concept car, which was presented by Kia brand as a pre-production version of the car. Probably, this year all the positive factors took a favourable turn, and the brand will present the car on the global automotive market in spite of the fact that world oil prices do not favour to the development of hybrid cars.
