Kia SP2i SUV spied testing again; Will rival Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier

Kia SP2i SUV spied testing again; Will rival Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier

-The Kia SP2i (codename) is the production version of the SP Concept.
-It is likely to get the Kia Tusker nomenclature.
-The SP2i will use BS-VI ready 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol and diesel motors.

Earlier this week, the Kia SP2i compact SUV was spotted testing in Delhi NCR. Expected to be christened as the Kia Tusker, this rival to the Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier was spied yet again. This time though, the test mule was a lower-spec model that featured steel rims with covers, halogen headlamps and conventional taillights. According to our sources, the SP2i will be launched in India in the second half of 2019.

The Kia SP2i (codename) is the production version of the Kia SP Concept that was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. Apart from the Creta and the Harrier, the production SP2i will also compete with the lower variants of the Jeep Compass and the upcoming MG Hector. The SP2i will feature Kia’s signature ‘Tiger Nose’ grille, dual headlamps setup, a prominent shoulder line and roof rails. While the test mule is a lower-spec variant, higher trims will feature wraparound LED taillamps and LED projector headlamps.

The Kia SP2i will feature disc brakes on all four wheels, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, speed alert system and front seat belts reminder as standard safety equipment, while the top-spec model will also get front parking sensors and 360-degree camera. The SP2i will employ all-new 1.5-litre BS-VI compliant turbocharged petrol and diesel powertrains that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed torque converter automatic is likely to be offered at launch. The platform that underpins the SP2i will also spawn the next-generation Hyundai Creta.
