Kia is providing a second sneak preview of its large SUV concept which will be exhibited starting next week at the North American International Auto Show.

While the first teaser offered us a glimpse of the side profile, this time around we get to check out the interior cabin. The dashboard features a clean layout with only a few physical controls in addition to a big touchscreen for the infotainment system providing access to most of the functions. There’s a secondary horizontal display mounted below to manage the climate settings and it appears to be touch-operated as well.

Moreover, the instrument cluster is entirely digital and it seems even the buttons on the steering wheel are also touch sensitive. Kia tells us the Telluride represents the company’s first ever vehicle to take advantage of 3D-printed components and these have been used for the steering wheel, dashboard, and door panels.

Little else is known about the concept right now, but we can tell you the styling represents the work of Kia’s California design studio. The appearance of the car will preview a “bold new direction” for the company’s styling language which is already very impressive compared to ten years ago.

The concept will show up next week in Detroit and will likely preview a large SUV acting as a successor of the defunct Borrego. We will have more details on Monday when the Telluride will premiere at NAIAS.
