The heavily updated Kia Mohave is now on sale in South Korea, and the company has provided full details about the car.

The facelifted exterior was unveiled last month, and features comprehensively redesigned front and rear ends with a heavy emphasis on its new LED lights and bold, full-width graphics, including a new take on the brand's signature tiger nose grille.

With the vehicle now available to order, Kia has unveiled the interior, which benefits from a similarly significant makeover.

Practically everything in the cabin, including the utilitarian dashboard, centre tunnel and door panels, all dating to car's original launch in 2008, have been replaced by designs which wouldn't look out of place in the rest of the Kia range.

Available features include a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation screen, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with cloud-based voice recognition software, a 15-speaker Lexicon audio system, Mohave-branded puddle lights, wireless smartphone charging, mood lighting, diamond-pattern stitched leather, and a tan interior.

Safety has been boosted by the addition of autonomous emergency braking, active cruise control, lane keeping assist, and rear cross traffic alert.

Under the bonnet the Mohave carries over the same 191kW/560Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine from before. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic, four-wheel drive, and differential lock.

The Mohave does now include an electronic parking brake in place of the old foot-operated pedal, electric power steering, and a terrain selector.

Depending on the variant, the Mohave rides on 18-inch wheels with 265/60 tyres or 20-inch rims with 265/50 rubber. At launch the revised Mohave will be available with five-, six- and seven-seat configurations.

The Mohave is available now in South Korea with prices starting from ₩47 million ($57,400). The just replaced model was produced solely in left-hand drive, and was available in the Middle East with a 3.8-litre V6.
