Kia EV5 Electric SUV Exterior Design Highlights

It’s interesting to see how similar the EV5 and EV9 look to their respective concepts. The front end of the EV5 boasts the new signature LED DRL design along with triangular LED headlights. The rest of the front profile is flat and looks kind of like a concept. Around the side, the EV5 gets a large glasshouse, which rises towards the C-pillar and merges with the rear windscreen, thus giving it a wraparound look. Like the front, the rear of the EV5 features connected LED tail lights with the Kia badging in the middle.
