KIA is preparing a new version of Mohave

Despite the relatively small sales of mid-size SUV KIA Mohave/Borrego in some markets, the automaker is preparing a new version. Yet there are few data.

Judging by the “spy” photos of the new model Borrego next generation is being tested in winter weather. Looking much more modern than its predecessor, released back in 2008, the novelty has a more square front end with the vertical radiator grille that is surrounded by large headlights with a distinctive vertical daytime running lights. Below we see the triangular air intakes with led fog lamps.

Have updated Mohave/Borrego has side steps and streamlined body that seems to have already received your serial. The SUV also has an evolutionary rear end with more angular lines. Difficult to disassemble additional parts of the body, but we can see the roof rack and alloy wheels with six spokes.

Also, there is speculation that the new product will affect a large crossover Telluride, which debuted at the North American international auto show last month.

At the moment, little is known about the technical equipment updated Mohave/Borrego – now, the South Korean version of the model equipped with a 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine that develops 256 HP (560 Nm). It is coupled with 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.

It remains unclear whether it will maintain its new Borrego attention to the off-road capabilities as its predecessor, was marketed as a luxury car, able to travel the beaten track. In any case, in the domestic market of Korea the current version of the model 37 055$.
