Kia Motors India is all set to unveil the production-ready version of SP Concept based SUV on June 20, 2019 in the country. However, even before the official debut, the SUV has been spotted in flesh during a TVC shoot somewhere outside India. As one can clearly see, the spied mule has a 'Seltos' nameplate but we are not too sure if the India-spec model would be christened the same as the company might choose a different name for the Indian model. Just so you know, Kia SP Concept had its world premiere at the 2018 Auto Expo.

Going by the spy-shots, it is evident that the production-ready Kia SP resembles mostly the Concept vehicle. Although, there are a few updates in form of larger ORVMs and 18-inch alloys in place of the 19-inch wheels, albeit with the same dual-tone pattern. The front fascia flaunts the ‘Tiger Nose’ grille and sleek LED headlamps. The SUV also boasts of a contrast roof, LED foglamps, chrome lining on the A-Pillar and pull-style door handles. Roof rails and LED tail-lamp cluster with chrome finish sum up the exterior styling of the Kia SP. Another thing to notice in the spy-shots is the presence of 'T-GDi' and 'AWD' badges which indicate that a 4X4 turbo petrol variant is in offing.

Kia SP is expected to be priced in a range of Rs 11-16 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom)

Though the spy images didn't get us inside the cabin of the SUV but they do reveal a glimpse of it. One image shows that there will be a dual-tone black and brown theme on offer in the cabin with a host of first-in-segment features such as a 360-degree camera, wireless charging and in-car WiFi. Also, a huge touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, head-up display and ambient lighting are some of the premium features that can be expected in the range-topping trims. Kia SP would be introduced in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with BS VI ready 1.5L engines with option of manual and automatic transmissions. Reports say that an even sportier variant with 1.4L turbo petrol engine and 7-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox with paddle shifters is also under works.

Kia SP would rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass & MG Hector
