Hard to tell if these recent spy photos are really the 2009 Kia Mesa or not, but now that the Hyundai Veracruz has been unveiled it's not much of a stretch to think Kia would want a three row SUV of its own. You can see a few styling cues from the Mesa concept in this prototype like its broad grille and boxy shape. Those six-spoke wheels also look straight out of the Kia/Hyundai parts bin. With the Veracruz scheduled to go on sale later this year, expect to see the Kia version hit the streets about a year later.
I just started my blog recently and I don't think it's a crime if I have newsworthy information that I have on my blog. I do not want people to take this as an advertisement. The information is right there, and if some are interested, perhaps they can browse the blog for a minute or two.
