In 2016, kiboshes and the interior of Kia vehicles were on the minds of consumers, especially in the US.
At the time, kiwis were starting to see the value of home decorating and were becoming more inclined to buy into the trend, and the company was looking to fill a void in its fleet.
The idea for a kia interior was born.
The company wanted to create a car interior that could compliment the car and could be customized.
So, it took a few months of brainstorming, and a few iterations.
“It was like a series of steps, each step having to be more creative and different than the last,” kiboso Shingo Matsumoto, chief creative officer of kia, told Business Insider in an interview.
“There was a lot of room for improvement, but ultimately we came to the final design that’s really what we wanted to achieve,” he said.
“We wanted a car that would have that same level of quality and the same level to the interior, so we chose kia.
I was really proud of the final result.”
In the process, Matsumotos and his team built the first design of what would eventually become the interior for the 2017 Kia Soul, a car in its prime.
The car has the look of a classic classic car from the 1960s, with some contemporary touches like the Kia logo.
In the car, the interior has a slightly futuristic feel, with a modern dashboard, air vents, and more.
It’s an ambitious goal, but Matsumots said he was happy with the end result.
“In terms of the design, we felt it was really important for the car to have a modern feel and to have the same look of the car that you’d find in a modern day car,” he explained.
“The idea was to do something that had the same kind of feel of a modern car, but not in the same way.”
The interior is very modern in design.
It has a modern look to it.
It feels like a modern sports car.
It actually feels like modern kia design.
The dashboard is the same as the current model.
It does look very modern.
The exterior of the Kiosa car.
The interior of the new Kia interior.
The exterior of an old car with a different look.
The interior of an older car with different styling.
The design was so different from the current Kia design that the company didn’t want to create it until it had some more time to test it.
“Our goal was to have something that felt more contemporary, more contemporary,” Matsumotos said.
“We didn’t do any major design changes.
We just wanted to be able to make the design and the design was more modern.”
When he first saw the interior design of the 2017 Soul, Matsumsomo was skeptical about its chances of success.
“I thought the interior was really modern, but I had a lot more faith in the design team,” he recalled.
“And the car looks great.
I think we’re really excited to have this car and be able do it.”
In fact, the design has been so successful that Kiosabotaro Matsumets was hired to create the interior.
“I am a designer by trade, so I was the one who made the design,” Matsumso said.
Matsumotes has been the interior designer on a lot other kia cars and it’s not uncommon for designers to get the chance to work on a car.
In a way, Matsimotos and Shingos’ team is responsible for one of the most iconic interior designs in kia history.
In 2017, the Soul was redesigned from the ground up to be the best-selling car in the company’s history.
That car, called the Soul Platinum, sold about 10 million units worldwide, but the interior looks nothing like the current one.
That was because the interior had to be completely redesigned, Matsomotos explained.
“For the interior to look as good as it does, the team had to go through so much work on the car,” Matsos said, “and to do that, they needed to go to so many different areas of the vehicle, and then to bring in so many people to work with it.”
The Kiosas interior is unique in that it was a redesign that went against the traditional kia look.
“It was a very modern, modern look,” Matsimots said.
That meant, for the first time in kiosa history, the car had to look different.
“To get it to look this good, the crew had to come up with a lot different ideas,” Matsomots said, adding that the team worked on a variety of designs.
“They had to take different ideas from the interior and try to create something that would look more modern, and something that wouldn’t have the car look like
