Kia's first mid-size SUV for the Indian market (codenamed SP2i) will be unveiled on June 20, 2019.

Earlier this month, Kia released the first design sketches of the car. The model draws inspiration from the SP Concept and features a tiger nose grille with wraparound LED headlamps on either side. The dual-tone front bumper houses a trapezoidal air dam and a pair of fog lights. At the rear, the SP2i gets LED tail lights, dual-tone bumper with reflectors, a chrome tailgate garnish and an integrated scuff plate.

In India, Kia's first mid-size SUV could be offered with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options paired with manual or automatic transmission. Reports suggest that Kia might also offer a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
