A good product design plays a vital role in making a brand strong. That’s where KIA takes a lead with its dynamic design ideologies for cars. Kia India is one of the few automakers that has integrated design and engineering in their car models so synchronously that KIA cars are not just stylish but also practical.

Kia Seat Design

The simplicity of the straight line is one of the main fundamentals that underpin the design philosophy of KIA. With this philosophy, the automaker associates straight lines with three main traits; clarity, precision, and distinctiveness. Combined with its signature tiger-nose grille and comfortable cabin, the KIA cars offer much more than basic satisfaction. Undoubtedly, the future of KIA designs looks positive, vibrant, and eye-catching.

KIA Carens offers the electric one-touch folding functionality for the second-row of seats while the KIA Carnival provides dual sunroof and rear touchscreen features. All in all, KIA has integrated smart features in its cars to attract customers while smoothing their driving experience.
