Remember Kia at the 2018 Auto Expo. Well, Just to refresh your memory Kia was out with its full force and laid a sprawl of its new line-up stocked for the Indian audience. But unfortunately only one could make to the Indian shores. With that said the company might have the remedy for its previous mistakes this time around. At the 2020 Auto Expo, we can surely expect Kia Motors to introduce some new faces for the Indian market and here we have a small list of what they could be:
The Carnival is for the elite class and is all set to break its cover on the 5th of February at the Auto Expo. The best part being that the carnival doesn’t have any direct rivals but will still turn out to be a real comfort seekers looking to buy a the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Tata Hexa.
This stretched MPV will feature electric sliding doors, second-row captain seats along with a host of additional features. Under its hood the, the carnival will feature a 2.2-litre diesel engine. The price tag on the carnival is expected to range between Rs. 27-36 lakhs.
Kia Seltos X-Line
The Seltos has been the most successful offering by the Korean auto giant as this was the only one who could make its way through the market and single-handedly took over the entire compact SUV segment.
This time Kia is all set to bring out the big guns with the Kia Seltos X-line which was first showcased at the 2019 LA Auto Show and we o wish to see this beast of a car at the 2020 Auto Expo. The X-line will support a high ground clearance and auxiliary lights with major cosmetic as well as mechanical upgrades.
The QYI will be the company’s first offering in the sub-4m SUV segment. What adds to the rush is that the Kia QYI will be based on the likes of its rivals including the Hyundai Venue and the Maruti Brezza and could be placed below the Kia Seltos. The QYI could come with the same engine specification as its rivals.
Kia Optima a.k.a K5
This premium offering from Kia could only hope for the soon to die breed. But by the look of it, we can surely say that this shouldn’t stop the company form bragging its products to the Indian audience. The upcoming Kia optima will stand against the Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord in the ultra-premium C-segment. The optima support a long list of features including ventilated seats, LED headlamps, head-up display along with a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine. In addition to that Kia is also expected to feature some of its global specific models.
