Korea’s 2021 Kia Mohave Becomes Smarter, Safer With New Amenities


Kia has presented the 2021 Mohave in Korea, an updated version of its body-on-frame SUV.

The vehicle has become smarter with the addition of a semi-autonomous driving system, which works on the highway and in congested traffic.

In addition to this, the Mohave also features a smart navigation-based cruise control that adjusts the speed for highway entrance and exit. The Forward Collision Avoidance Assist-Junction Crossing assists those behind the wheel at crossroads by automatically applying the brakes if it senses a risk of collision with other vehicles.

A new head-up display that has grown from 8.5 to 10 inches, is also part of the package for 2021. The system adds a new function that displays the road curvature information and the lane change indicators. Another novelty is the smart posture control, a system that automatically adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel and side mirrors according to the driver’s height. Wireless smartphone charging is standard across the range and the 2021 Mohave is now quieter, with the addition of the thicker front windows.

Power is still supplied by the 3.0-liter V6 engine, which meets the Euro 6 RDE emissions standard. The turbodiesel produces 256 HP (260 PS / 191 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque, and works in concert with an 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

The 2021 Mohave is offered in three trim levels, with Korean pricing starting at 48.69 million won (equal to $44,525) for the entry-level Platinum. The Masters starts at 52.86 million won ($48,338) and the Gravity can be had from 56.94 million won ($52,069).
