The 2019 Seoul motor show has hosted the reveal of two new Kia concept cars, the Mohave Masterpiece and SP Signature.
Each concept offers a glimpse of what could be Kia’s next-generation SUV design language.
The Mohave Masterpiece wears sculpted bodywork with bold lines in what is a tough exterior matched with ‘go-anywhere’ capability.
Features on the Masterpiece include a new incarnation of Kia’s tiger nose grille, no clear boundaries between the grille and LED headlamps and signature lines at both ends of the vehicle.
Following the unveiling of the SP Concept last year, the Signature concept represents an evolution of the design which previews a production-ready compact SUV.
Design highlights of the SP Concept include a wide grille and long hood, wide rear lamps and body lines, integrated daytime running lamps, thin LED lamps at the front and rear, sharp lines pressed into the bodywork, and precise metallic details.
Kia will also demonstrate its Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (R.E.A.D.) system at the show which takes a giant leap into the future where autonomous driving is the norm. The technology is designed to optimise and personalise the cabin to the driver’s preferences by analysing the driver’s emotional state in real-time through artificial intelligence-based bio-signal recognition technology.
Also exhibited will be V-Touch, a world-first virtual touch-type gesture control technology which employs a 3D camera to monitor users’ eyes and fingertip. This system could see cabins become clutter-free by eliminating the need for buttons and touchscreens.
