Kia Releases Upcoming Concept Car Drawings in Fiery Red

January 25, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Kia has teased the autoworld once again by releasing images of its mystery car that is said to debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March. The South Korean car maker boasts that the design is “provocative and racy”.

But they left before saying anything further regarding the specs so as to maintain an element of surprise during the debut function. The design sketches reveal a compact two-door coupe design with a tall front apron, which hints at the vehicles crossover/SUV aspirations.

The new low-riding concept could be a preview of a niche vehicle akin to the Nissan Juke – or a hi-po imagining of the next generation Kia Soul or the Renault Captur for that regard.

Kia says the unnamed concept incorporates design boss Peter Schreyer’s signature tiger-nose grille, a mischievous yet friendly design that is coupled with strong styling lines that exude speed and energy from every angle.


The press release concludes that this new concept “is guaranteed to attract attention”. It’s possible that this next generation concept car could expand Kia’s use of the turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI (gasoline direct injection) engine, particularly as the sketches show twin exhaust pipes.

Though as with many concepts, a more exotic configuration is just as likely.
