The aggregation in allegation of Kia’s Australian analysis is allurement the company’s top assumption for a rugged, body-on-frame SUV with Toyota Land Cruiser-like off-road capacity. The archetypal could access bound if it’s accustomed for production.
“We charge apparently one or two bigger [SUVs], to be absolutely honest. That would advice us dramatically,” affirmed Damien Meredith, the arch operating administrator of Kia Australia, in an account with Motoring. He added there’s allowance aloft the Sorento for a new SUV, and he requested a athletic archetypal able of towing and activity off-road.
In the United States, Kia’s bigger SUV — and the bigger car it has anytime put its name on — is the well-received Telluride (pictured) appear in 2019. It’s not as boxy as the body-on-frame archetypal Meredith has in mind, and it’s not awash in Australia because it’s currently alone accessible with left-hand drive. Kia would charge to actualize a new archetypal to claiming the Land Cruiser Prado (which is abate than the accepted model, and awash as the Lexus GX in the United States) and the Ranger-based Ford Everest in Australia, but it ability not accept to alpha from scratch.
In 2019, Meredith accepted Kia and sister aggregation Hyundai are accordingly developing a body-on-frame auto aimed at Toyota’s Tacoma-sized Hilux and the Ford Ranger, Australia’s best- and second-best-selling cartage in 2019. Kia could chase the aisle blazed by its rivals and about-face its accessible medium-sized barter into a family-friendly SUV. This action would accord its Australian analysis the Land Cruiser-punching archetypal it’s allurement for, while acceptance it to advantage the allowances of economies of calibration by administration genitalia beyond several archetypal lines.
Kia fatigued the SUV on Meredith’s ambition account hasn’t been accustomed for assembly yet, so it’s far too aboriginal to acquaint whether it will be accessible in the United States. Offering it alfresco of Australia is a must, though. Toyota awash 18,335 units of the Land Cruiser Prado on the Australian bazaar in 2019; alike if Kia acme it with 20,000 sales, that’s not about abundant aggregate to absolve developing a new car, alike one congenital on an absolute platform.
We’ll accept a bigger abstraction of what the approaching holds for Kia’s all-around SUV ambit back the above trucks accomplish their debut. Both are accepted on auction by 2021, so they’re about the corner, and neither has been accepted for the American bazaar yet; Hyundai’s adaptation is different to the Santa Cruz additionally beneath development.
