The pre-production prototype of the future flagship KIA was shown on video. Unfortunately, we did not see anything new in the full-size Telluride crossover for 8 seats. On the video, the model was again in the “Texas” performance with some design features.
At the beginning of the month, as part of the Fashion Week in New York, a pre-production version of KIA Telluride was presented. The future flagship of the South Korean company is preparing to enter the US market, but the exact design is still hidden. This time we were able to see the preliminary version on the detailed video, but all in the former situation of the Fashion Week.
Judging by rumors, the serial version will be slightly different from the sample shown, so we can already make a general picture of the model. The famous and popular designer Brandon Maxwell worked on the design of the exhibition. After the show in New York, the car was shown at a big fair in Texas, under which the model was able to be shot on video.
As noted by foreign experts, the model is equipped with a set of purely decorative elements. All leather straps, red leather in the style of cowboys and so on are created exclusively for the show car. There is also a suggestion that the production version will lose the bumper shown with a winch, reinforced thresholds, leather-covered rearview mirror housings, a full-size spare wheel on the rear door, and a roof rack made of wood.
Despite the abundance of decorative tinsel, you can consider the KIA Telluride itself, which also does not differ much from the previously shown concept of the same name. Apparently, the serial version will be a bit simpler than the Texan show car, but it is quite possible that such an “off-road” version with a winch and snorkel will be presented on the market.
Unfortunately, the company does not yet provide details of the car. It is already known that the US will become the first market, where production will be established. Later, the model may appear in the rest of the world, including Russia, but this is not certain.
The motor line, cost and date of the beginning of sales are not yet called.
