KIA informed about new products for Russia in 2018


The company KIA plans to expand the model range in Russia, which in 2018 will include 13 cars. As the press service of the company informed "AUTOSTAT" agency, new and updated models will be presented on the Russian market in the next year, as well as two special series, one of which will be devoted to the World Cup 2018. So, in February of 2018, the updated flagship crossover KIA Sorento Prime will be released on the Russian market. In the first quarter of 2018, the sports fastback class Gran Turismo - KIA Stinger will go on sale. Among the new products there is also the new version of the hatchback Picanto X-Line.

The updated crossover KIA Sorento Prime is equipped with a new petrol engine 3.5 MPI (249 hp), as well as the already known diesel 2.2 CRDI (200 hp) and gasoline 2.4 GDI (188 hp) engines. The first two power units work in conjunction with the new 8-speed transmission, and the latter - with a modernized 6-speed automatic transmission. The new design has bumpers and lighting technology, as well as light alloy wheels. The range of colors of the body and interior is expanded. The design of the steering wheel and the climate control unit has been updated.

The fastest car in Stinger's history on the Russian market will be presented in three versions with two variants of gasoline engines. All versions of the KIA Stinger are equipped with the latest 8-speed automatic transmission of its own design, which has a manual shift mode.

The new version of the KIA Picanto X-Line features by original design that echoes the appearance of crossovers and SUVs of the KIA brand, in particular - Sportage and Sorento. The original radiator closer of the KIA "Tiger Smile" is combined with relief bumpers made in the style of crossovers, in the lower part of which there are protective lining "under the metal" in front and behind. Black overlays on wheel arches and thresholds emphasize the increased ground clearance. Features of the X-Line version are the accents of the color "lime" in the exterior and interior. The increased ground clearance (156 mm, which is 15 mm higher than the base European version) provides a higher driver's fit.

As for sales plans for 2018, KIA Motors Rus intends, first of all, to keep its current position. As previously reported "AUTOSTAT", for the eleven months of 2017, 168,736 KIA cars were sold in Russia, which is more by 23.7% compared to the same period of the last year. As a result, KIA keeps the leadership among all foreign automobile brands represented in Russia.
