Last week, Kia released the first images of the 2020 Mohave, and now a sketch of the interior has surfaced on the company’s Korean website. In case you haven’t heard, the massive body-on-frame three-row SUV has been given a heavy facelift, and it looks like the cabin will also receive a comprehensive makeover.

In fact, most of the panels and switchgear appear to be brand new, despite the bodyshell being largely identical to the outgoing model. The ultra-modern dashboard, which replaces the previous car’s dated design, follows the template set by newer Kia models like the Cerato and Stinger, with horizontal air vents, a large 12.3-inch centre touchscreen (linked to the UVO infotainment system) and a tall centre console.

There are also large swathes of wood trim, plus stitching on the dashboard and door cards. The steering wheel, meanwhile, has been lifted from the facelifted Sorento, with four spokes and a round protrusion on the square boss. The car also boasts new features such as a 12.3-inch instrument display, a head-up display, a hands-free powered tailgate and a rotary selector for the Mohave’s various on- and off-road drive modes.

These updates round off a substantial facelift, which also includes an exterior redesign. The front end sees the fitment of a full-width “tiger nose” grille with vertical bars and integrated four-projector LED headlights, while the rear end adopts the in-vogue full-width tail light design.

Kia has also confirmed that the Mohave will retain its 3.0 litre S2 turbodiesel V6, which makes 260 PS at 3,800 rpm and 559 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 3,000 rpm. It’s paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive and a locking differential for hardcore off-roading.
