If you notice properly, Kia models are a sportier and more premium version of the Hyundai cars. Despite having the same platform and chassis, the design will be completely different.

We can expect sharp creases over the body with hints of sporty looks. Now, the hints of sporty looks might include a new set of alloy wheels, skid plates, chrome detailing over the front and rear portion and probably larger wheel arches. On the top, there will be roof rails and probably a dual-tone colour treatment. At the rear, it might get rear spoilers, double exhaust and large set of tail lights.

Kia SP Concept Vs Hyundai Creta- Interiors

The Creta follows a black-beige dual tone treatment. The SP Concept might get an all-black treatment. But as we see many of its models look sporty yet premium. So inside the cabin, SP Concept could use some chrome or false wood highlights over the AC vents, dashboard and centre console. Rest of the interior elements like seat upholstery, the instrument cluster, dashboard layout will be revised in the SP Concept.
