SPYSHOTS: India-bound Kia SP (Kia Tusker) caught testing in South Korea

Kia Motors is leaving no stone unturned to make its presence felt in India. The South Korean automaker is busy in setting-up its plant in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. The first product to roll-out of the plant, and for Kia in India will be Trazor mid-size SUV.


The Kia SP aka Kia Tusker will reportedly be based on an updated version of the Creta’s platform.

This model will be based on the SP Concept that Kia showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo held in February this-year. The Trazor was recently spotted undergoing testing in South Korea. While we can see the car being heavily camouflaged, there is also a hint of how the model will look-like when it gets launched here next year.

Spy shots show the car having all-LED headlamps, muscular wheel arches and a good looking ‘Tiger Nose’ grille. We can say that these are expected to give the Trazor a distinct identity here. Also noted is the smooth A-pillar which reminds us of the Hyundai Creta.


The upcoming mid-size SUV is likely to feature a all-new range of 1.5-liter petrol and diesel engines.

The rear features large tail-lamps which are carried on from the concept car. Kia have not yet announced the specification for the Trazor, but we can expect it to arrive soon. We can expect the Trazor to come powered with both petrol and diesel engines, with Kia also planning to offer an AMT transmission for it.

The Trazor is expected to be marketed as a feature-packed mid-size SUV. It will rival the likes of the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster. With its design, we can expect the Trazor to strike a chord with the Indian public as soon as it gets launched.
