KIA’s Bold Concept Provides a Glimpse into KIA’s Future Design Language

Unless you have a chauffeur or takes public transport, commutes between work and home, and anything in between, can be hardly called “rejuvenating”, but that does not deter KIA from proposing that its concept car, Novo, can “establish a calming, focused environment in which drivers can refresh and rejuvenate as they transition from one life commitment to the next.” People, looks like we are witnessing the world’s first Zen car here, or at least we think it sounds pretty Zen anyways. Rejuvenating or not, we can’t say for sure, but one thing for sure is, this car is the boldest concept yet from the South Korean car maker and like it or not, it is the design language we will be seeing in KIA Motor’s next-generation compact vehicles.

KIA GT4 Stinger Concept

coupe is no stranger to KIA, but the Koup hardly has the sports car look (it is just a two-door car and that’s that) and that’s not to mention the pretty standard performance you get with most KIA’s rides. that leaves the Korean automaker a void to fill by the KIA GT4 Stinger Concept you see here. sporting a ‘traditional’ sports car styling with long bonnet and short deck (or a wedge-shape design, if you prefer), this 2+2 sports car is powered by a proven 2.0-liter turbocharged T-GDI four-cylinder petrol unit (as used in the Optima), tuned to put out a healthy 315 horsepower, and mated to a close-ration six-speed manual transmission that sends those raw power to its big, fat rear wheels. speaking wheels, the Stinger sits on custom 20-inch aluminum center-lock wheels (!) with carbon fiber inserts, wrapped in 275/35R-20 Pirelli P-Zero performance rubbers for the rear and 235/35R-20 items up front.
