During the month of June Kia confirmed the future arrival of a new model with which to deepen its foray into the SUV segment of the european market. In particular, the south Korean manufacturer announced that they are working on a new compact SUV with the rival between other models with the Mazda CX-3 or Honda HR-V. well, today we show you the first spy photos of this new model that will be presented at the end of 2017.

¿How will you measure the new SUV from Kia? As we say, we will be in a model with compact dimensions. And taking into account its main rivals, we get a pretty clear idea. In the case of the Mazda CX-3 we talk about 4.27 meters long, while the Honda HR-V measures 4.29 meters. Therefore, the new SUV from Kia will be at similar measures to the ones mentioned above.
