Kia unleashes racy crossover concept

IOL mot jan24 kia concept a . Mystery Kia Concept will make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Kia has released the first teaser shots of a sporty new concept car that will make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.

As it goes with these previews, no concrete information has been provided, which means the automotive rumour mill has gone into overdrive again.

One theory is that many of its styling cues (such as front and rear design) will make it onto Kia's next Sportage.

It's also speculated that the concept could point towards a Nissan Juke rival that Kia may be preparing. But where would this leave the Soul then? Our guess is that Kia could be working on a sportier coupé version of the next Soul.

Kia describes the unnamed concept as being “provocative and racy.”

“With the company's signature tiger-nose morphing into a mischievous, yet friendly, grille and headlight arrangement, coupled with strong styling lines that exude speed and energy from every angle, Kia's newest concept vehicle is guaranteed to attract attention,” the media statement enthuses.
