The Korean car company, KIA has entered in Indian market very successfully by the launch of “Seltos”. The company now want to expand their feet in other segments as well. According to fresh media reports, the company is planning to enter into MPV segment by launching a new 7-seater MPV to dominate Maruti Ertiga. The Ertiga is leading in the segment very much successfully. The new Kia MPV will share its platform with the Seltos SUV but sit on a longer wheelbase.

The gasoline motor makes 113bhp with 144Nm and the oil burner is good enough for 113bhp and 250Nm. Both manual and automatic gearboxes are likely to be offered.
