The interior has been upgraded with a new display screens that look like the ones seen in other recent Kia models. A gauge cluster with a digital display located on the left is the same place as the infotainment screen to the right. We also have seen what appears to be an up-facing display, too. The brown leather seen here might be included in the color palette of upholstery and ambient lighting might be an alternative as well. A rotary-style shifter is replacing the gear lever that is traditionally used however we’re not certain when it will make it into our U.S. version.
