2013 Kia teases new compact crossover concept for IAA

by SpeedLux

Kia has recently announced its plans to reveal a B-segment concept at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show to be held in September.

Described as a dramatic concept, the concept will serve as a preview for a possible upcoming competitor in the B-segment. In other words, we are dealing with a compact crossover which is pretty evident by the slightly increased ride height.

The company did not reveal any further details about the concept, but from these teaser photos we can clearly notice that the Nissan Juke rival will wear Kia’s corporate grille together with those “ice-cube” LED daytime running lights and fog lights that are also seen on the cee’d GT / pro_cee’d GT. Other features include a sculpted hood, bulging wheel arches, wraparound headlights and what appears to be a carbon fiber front lip spoiler.

In terms of interiors, the futuristic cabin adopts a minimalistic approach with only a few switches and knobs, along with a flat-bottomed steering wheel featuring paddle shifters. Judging by the green border of the front grille, the concept would probably have a hybrid or electric powertrain.

Further info about the concept is expected to be available on September 10 when the car will be unveiled at IAA.
