Kia Telluride Concept – Beautiful Interior and Exterior Design:
The interior design of the resulting Kia Telluride Concept is very massive but very simple. Actually, this model will have a retro exterior design, and well known curvaceous styling used in others SUV will not be characteristics of this fantastic model. Instead of that famous styling, this model will hit the market with a more upright stance. At the front fascia, we can notice retro styling, very similar to the old school American trucks. Also, the “tiger nose” front grille will remain the same as before. However, some slight modifications are provided but nothing too much notable. On the other hand, the headlights of this model are modern and stylish, and the upcoming Kia Telluride Concept has quad-LED headlamps and also horizontal LED indicator lights. When you look at the wheels, you see how large this model is. Colossal five spoke 22-inch aluminum wheels fitted with 275/45R22 tires (Hankook Ventus ST) will be the part of standard equipment.
The interior design of the new Telluride Concept is very elegant and it is finished with black leather. Also, besides leather, a lot of others high-quality materials are provided including aluminum, carbon fiber, and wood. All of them can enjoy the pleasant drive thanks to the very supportive seats fitted with Smart sensors. Some of the other interior features include seven-speaker Harman Kardon for better entertainment, swipe command, air condition, cruise control, a lot of connectivity systems, and many others.
