I think I spotted the same car on the Faridabad roads. Since most was camouflaged I decided to get the most of what was easily available. That's a nice set of alloys.

So this car will come with disc brakes all around (2nd image confirms it). It would be great if it's there in all the variants and not only top end. I hope Hyundai also plonks all disc brakes in Creta across variants without raising it's price as it's already overpriced.

Recently caught this on Hosur Road Bangalore. Wasn’t able to capture the front, but the LED headlamps / DRLs looked pretty good

Car seems to be ready for a launch !!

Since it is based on Creta which is around for some time now, I wonder if they need such extensive testing anyway and most likely they will share engine and power trains as well.

Two wrong assumptions there -

1. Based on the next generation Creta, and not the current one.

2. Will debut their new BS6 compliant 1.5 Petrol & diesel engine options - which will also come in the next generation Hyundai Creta later.

Interesting new developments at Kia! But let's not forget that all this expertise is based on the Hyundai's experience of the past 2 decades.

Just changed the fan-belt of our venerable 2011 i10, and it mentions the little bit of Kia we have in all 'slanted H' cars..

I read somewhere that the next generation Creta will be offered as a 7 seater (assuming longer) and this car still has similar dimensions as current Creta

I agree with you on the Engine options. Could be the BS-VI testing done by kia/hyundai both

Car has been spotted testing, for the Chinese market where it will likely debut first -

Those alloys look neat. Seems to have rear disc brakes as well.

Hyundai and Kia have been jointly designing and developing vehicles since they came together after the economic crisis of late 1990s. Sharing base platforms, components and suppliers has given them economies of scale; however they have been careful to have enough visual differentiation to maintain their individual identity.

Kia’s Hyundai Creta-rivalling SUV will come with two engine options; to be launched in second half of 2019.

There’s a sportier version of the SP in the works too, which may also make its way to India in 2020.

Quote:
SP2i is expected to feature either a 1.5-litre petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel engine. Both engine options are likely to be BS-IV-compliant at launch and will be upgraded to meet the BS-VI norms close to the official deadline of April 1, 2020. Both engines will be available with a choice of manual and automatic gearboxes. The sporty version of the Kia SP2i in development will be powered by a 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit.
Quote:
SP2i SUV will feature, such as a dual-headlamp set-up, Kia’s ‘Tiger Nose’ grille design, a prominent shoulder line and glasshouse. The Kia is also likely to get segment-leading tyre size with gunmetal grey finished alloy wheels, which are expected to be offered on the top-spec trim. The sportier version of the Kia SP SUV will be differentiated from the standard with a body kit as well as a racier trim on the inside.
Quote:
Equipment on offer is likely to include a large touchscreen infotainment system, a 360-degree camera, wireless charging and in-car WiFi. A head-up display, an ambient lighting package and a fully digital instrument cluster (as seen on the concept) are also said to be on offer on the top-spec version of the final product. Moreover, paddleshifters are also expected for the automatic versions.
