Kia teases brash SUV concept ahead of Detroit Motor Show

Kia has announced that it will unveil a new SUV concept car at next week’s Detroit Auto Show.

The concept – known as the Telluride – hints at a possible future premium SUV in the brand’s line-up – and it could be coming to the UK.

In a statement, Kia said: “Conceived at the automaker’s California design studio, the concept offers an abundance of advanced technology – including state-of-the-art health-and-wellness technology – and takes Kia’s design language in a bold new direction, suggesting styling of a possible future premium large SUV in the brand’s line-up.

“There are currently no plans for this concept to enter immediate production and decisions on which markets may receive a future production version will be made in due course.”

The concept highlights Kia’s first use of 3D-printed components, highlighted by this image of the dashboard, released today. The Telluride concept looks set to feature a minimalist interior, dominated by touchscreens and digital displays. Also note the stylish clock in the centre of climate control unit.
