Default KIA Frankfurt show concept



except that it is destined for upcoming Frankfurt show, that could "fit" 5 persons and that it is a product of their EU design studio, no additional info yet... soon to follow, so to say

looks promising though... :)

Reportedly previews the Cee'd...except we've seen the spyshots so we know that ain't the case.

This could easily be previewing the next Optima greenhouse with the vertical metal looking thing. Air it up a bit and it would make a great look for a crossover. Hyundai-Kia is almost as bad as VWAG and GM in producing stunning concepts that never reach production.

Unfortunately, the cee'd will only be a refaced i30, which, far from being ugly or something actually wrong with it, is a bit too vanilla for my taste. So a far cry from this good looking concept.

Probably we can hope for a Stinger shooting break?

I like the overall look. The handles appear very Model S.

My only concern is that the cars stance seems to slope backwards. I prefer a cars stance that slopes forward...kind of giving it that jacked up rear end / muscle car look.

I agree 100%. The Mercedes saggy butt look is a bad trend.

I don't agree... backward sloping lines can be damn elegant...


btw: here's a photo of -I have to say, rather nice- front end:




and its side also works well...:




damn good and still more agressive than "sloping" :)

Looks really good, BUT, and unfortunately there is always this but with Hyundai/Kia concepts, I doubt too much of that will make it into production anywhere. And please don't ridicule us by telling this previews the next cee'd. Yes, both have 4 wheels. That's it.

That said this would make one nice Stinger shooting break....
