Kia has revealed its plans of coming down to the Indian market. While the production at their Anantpur plant will start in early 2019 and sales of cars will start thereafter, the company is expected to start rolling out its CBU line up in the meanwhile by setting up new showrooms and establishing its presence. While Kia hasn’t revealed their Indian line-up yet, there are chances that we may see the gorgeous GT Stinger somewhere down the line on Indian roads. Only if wishes were… Here is one of the most likely cars to come down to India – a SUV which has near about the same dimensions as the Creta.
