Appeared the first photos of a test prototype of the new crossover Kia, designed to replace the model Mohave.
Kia started road tests of the large crossover to its lineup, which will replace the model Mohave. The first pictures of the test prototype of the SUV was published by the Korean Car Blog.
The prototype of this car called Telluride was shown in January 2016 at Petroushka motor show, and two years later the chief designer of the South Korean brand Peter Schreyer said that the company is developing the production version of the crossover.
According to preliminary data, commodity Kia Telluride will be built on an extended platform of the Sorento. Unlike the prototype, the crossover will lose the custom back doors that open against the direction of motion.
The novelty will be offered with both front-wheel and all-wheel drive. It is not excluded that Kia Telluride will borrow from the concept car’s hybrid powertrain, which includes a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and electric motor producing 130 horsepower.
The exact timing of the emergence of a new large crossover Kia is not yet known. The model will primarily be sold in the North American market.
