While we wait for its final showcased probably at LA Auto Show in a few weeks, todays we have received a new set of spy shots where you can see the Kia Telluride from different angles, and at this time, probably with the best look of every spy shot we have seen before.
Kia Motors America revealed a month ago a customized Telluride for New York’s Fashion Week who showed some aftermarket parts on the exterior and a detailed interior and after that we got exclusive pictures directly from KMA’s Dealer Show event (you can also see on the pics the Sportage facelift). Now we can take a look to in the wild pics caught in South Korea.
Kia has tried to transform the same muscular exterior design we have seen on the Telluride concept car to a production car, and this make it appear radically different than any other Kia currently on sale.
Key aspects of the Telluride concept‘s design included its square shape, rectangular front grille, pumped up arches and chrome window trimmings. Telluride offers a look at Kia’s crossover future.
Despite Kia has not used the the same headlights design if we compare between the final design of Telluride and the concept car. The front on this new pictures looks good and bold while the LED stripes were moved down the front bumper.
Similarities between the concept and production will continue, as we can see on this spy pictures, on the chromed doors line or the tailights. To ensure the vehicle appeals to SUV customers with a slightly less generous budget, a number of lower-end trims and a simple and intuitive infotainment system are also be offered.
It is still not sure about what Kia put underpinning of Telluride, a front-wheel drive platform or shared the rumored K9 platform (as a recent report) with optional HTRAC AWD system. Same 3.3 Twin Turbo engine and 8-speed automatic transmission will be available.
What do you think about Telluride’s exterior of the production version?
