  • Kia’s small SUV, Kia QYI spied testing.
  • It will be based on the Hyundai Venue.
  • Will share chassis, suspension, driveline components.
  • Will not look similar.
  • To be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020.

Kia’s new sub -4-meter SUV, Kia QYI has been spotted testing, and it promises to look significantly different from the car that it will be based on, the Hyundai Venue.

The test car that was spied was clad with camouflage. There won’t be any significant difference along the sides of the Venue and the new Kia, codenamed QYI, other than a few details like creases in the doors and different alloy wheel design.

However, the front and rear will have to look like a part of the Kia family design, so it gets horizontal LED tail lamps with an inverted L-shaped light guide running along the top of the lamp.

We can expect the standard Kia grille to make its presence felt, and maybe even LED headlamps. The interior will offer the most number of features in the segment, and the Venue is not a bad place to be in – but expect the Kia to be a little more upmarket.

The new Kia will share engines and gearboxes with the Hyundai, though. So we can expect a 1.5-liter petrol engine with 114bhp, a 1.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine with an identical power figure, and turbocharged direct injection petrol displacing 1.0 liter and that generates 120bhp. Six-speed manual transmissions will be standard, with the turbo petrol offering a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The new small Kia SUV will most likely have its global unveil at the Auto Expo 2020 and go on sale nearer the festive season next year. Its focus will be developing markets, as it already has a product called the Stonic that occupies the space in developed markets.
