The car features chrome garnish on the boot, high-mounted LED stop lamp with roof spoiler like cut-outs similar to the Tiago, colored dor handles, alloy wheels and chrome strip on the window. On the front the car looks exactly similar to the Tiago hatch.
The black dashboard gets a touchscreen infotainment system not available on the Tiago, automatic climate control (looks like borrowed from Zest),Piano black centre console, audio controls on the three spoke steering wheel.
The Kite 5 will offer class-leading boot capacity of 420 liters making it one of the largest in the compact sedan segment.
