The Simplicity of the Straight Line

Design Direction

The simplicity of straight line is one of the core fundamentals underpinning Kia's design philosophy. Straight lines represent clarity, precision and distinctiveness, and these traits are fully reflected in the attitudes and vision of Kia designers. Our design efforts are focused on attaining long-term loyalty from customers with simple shapes, delicate interior and exterior details and the provision of experiences that are hard to find in other cars.

Kia created a visual symbol as powerful as its brand logo. The signature grill, headlamps and brand logo form a unique and consistent family look that has evolved over the years and is now so common on the roads that people can instantly recognize the brand from a distance or in the dark.
