So before we go on wed highly appreciate your support by subscribing and turning on the notification bell, if you havent already and please dont, forget to like comment and vote on the question thats presented at the end of the video kia celtas facelift july 2022, release believe It or not the rarely talked about kia celtos is one of the best selling compact crossovers in the world, marketed as a premium compact suv, which is an odd space in the automotive classification realm.

It enjoys great success in markets like native korea and india, even in the states kia. Small crossover suv saw a growth of 30 percent in sales despite the pandemic, which is second highest growth of all sports utility vehicles from kia after the ever popular telluride. The popularity is due to a traditional suv profile that mimics the styling of the larger telluride upscale details, quality interior large for its size, passenger and cargo space and fuel economy. In fact, ranks celtas in the number one spot for the most popular suv. Crossover indicating that 94 of owners recommend the car with a 4.7 out of 5.0 reliability rating. No wonder kia saw it fit to develop the ev4 as a top priority. After the successful introduction of the ev6, the ev4 a dedicated electric vehicle based on the advanced egmp platform, will essentially be a smaller version of the ev6 with the dimension and the suv styling inspiration of saltos likely to be an eventual replacement for saltos. The ev4 should be available for sale in 2023. However, until then, kia is implementing an upgrade to the existing celtas first introduced in 2019. Its also hard to believe that 2022 marks the fourth year of production for the small suv, which still looks trendy and premium for the revision. Its hinted that kia is freshening up the design by giving it the sportage treatment. With the boomerang shaped lighting signature, which was initially heavily criticized by finding places in peoples hearts and being accepted as the iconic look of the korean brand, which has seen tremendous growth in sales due to its successful lineup of suvs.

Aside from the aesthetics, another major change is in the powertrain, its confirmed that kia will discontinue the 1.6 liter diesel engine due to a drastic fall in popularity with the consumers, preference towards hybrid and electric vehicles in its place. Kia will introduce a hybrid power plant with the same displacement. However, it wont be the latest turbocharged smartstream power plant from the larger sportage in tucson, but rather a non turbo version borrowed from the current hyundai kona, which pumps out 1′ horsepower and 195 pound feet of torque. The revised kia celtos will make its introduction in july 2022. Hyundai palisade, facelift may 2022 release. Hyundai palisade is another tremendously popular hyundai suv model that will undergo revision in 2022. first introduced in 2019. Although late to the three row suv game compared to the competitors. The first bonafide large suv of the brand palisade gave hyundai a tremendous lift in the sales and the image of the company, the palisade and the kia counterpart telluride became an instant success and being in constant short supply. They are known to be fetching price premiums at the dealerships. As a side note hyundai and the labor union in korea finally agreed to increase the production of palisade by additional 20 000 units per year to resolve the chronic supply problem. The korean labor union, at the ulsan factory, where palisade is built first, refused to build additional units over the inevitability that it would lose the popular staria minivan production to another factory in korea by taking on more palisade production.

But they finally caved in fearing that the assembly line could move to the u.s plant in montgomery alabama altogether. The u.s produced telluride will not be inflicted with the union issue and is expected to see increased production as well. The 2022 production palisade will now feature a new design and other significant upgrades from the current model, which still looks fantastic and imposing, as it did four years ago. Just like kias compact sportage is influencing the design of the new saltos, its hyundai counterpart. The all new tucsons design concept will take the center stage in palisades new appearance known as a parametric jewel hidden lamp, the unique disappearing headlamp and the waterfall grille will now be the look that defines the hyundais large suv as innovative and striking as it was in Tucson, we are not certain if its an improvement for the larger palisade. However, the newly designed interior thats expected to offer a quintessential panoramic screen comprised of dual 12.5 inch lcds much like other new hyundai group products like ionic, 5 and kia. Ev6 is definitely a huge improvement over the current 10.25 inch screen. Also improved is the power plant as the palisades current somewhat archaic, 3.8 liter v6 unit will be replaced with a new 3.5 liter smartstream v6 engine, which is cleaner and more efficient, providing virtually the same power at 290 horsepower. The production of the new palisade begins in may 2022. fyi. The platform sharing kia telluride is also up for renewal and follow palisade within a year.

It is also to receive an improvement in the styling that is met with some heavy criticism when the prototype was first exposed. Contrary to the expectation that the new ionic 6 sedan would inherit the design of the stunning prophecy concept, the austere, prototype, didnt, quite capture, the concept, cars allure hyundai will attempt to bring back some of the excitement of the concept by tweaking the front and rear end.

Lengthening the vehicle by six inches or 90 millimeters to the length of 196 inches or 4990 millimeters, which is as long as the genesis, g80 sedan as the rest of the body, will remain unchanged. We are not certain how effective the revision may be, but in defense of the designers and engineers that created the ionic 6, the sedan was developed to eventually replace the sonata family sedan and not a four door sports car to compete with the porsche take in and The audi itron gt, if you are looking for porsche, take in and addy e tron gt kind of excitement.
