Here are some new images of the all-new Kia GT rear-wheel-drive sports sedan concept vehicle!

Kia’s all-new concept car, which is scheduled to make its official premiere at the up-coming Frankfurt Motor Show, has been revealed further with some additional images that surfaced on to the world wide web yesterday.

While some automotive media previously reported that the stunning Kia concept car will be called “Verdus”, these latest shots indicate that the vehicle will bear the  GT nomenclature (as seen on the rear licence plate)! Further revealed are some unique design details such as suicide doors and B-pillar-less cabin, as well as interior layout.

Details on Kia GT’s drivetrain remain a secret for now. The full details will be released at the official unveiling ceremony in Frankfurt next week. Stay tuned!

  1. I think KMA is dropping the “Ball” by NOT putting the LED Daytime Running Lamps on (all) 2012 KIa Rio`s regardless of LX, EX, or SX Trim levels. I believe that UK and Canadian vehicles (may) get them as standard equipment. It can`t cost that much more and besides being an excellent safety feature, it gives this B- segment vehicle an upscale distinctive look. When you notice a Sportage or a Sorento in SX trim behind you in your rear view mirror, it looks sharp!

  2. I agree Philip. Same goes for the USA Soul. Only the top trim gets the LEDs in the headlamps. And the Optima could use them as well (I’ve seen pictures fromt other countries with the LEDs as the DRLs in the front fog lamp).

  3. If putting LED Daytime Running Lamps in (all) Trim levels of the 2012 Kia Rio5 and Rio Sedan is a “Cost” issue, at the very least, why not incorporate either the Front Parking Lights, Fog Lights, or Primary Head Lights with a regular DRL module to afford the added safety feature. In the U.S., only Chrysler, Mazda, and Nissan (do not) have DRL`s. U.S. Ford vehicles have the DRL module already and can be activated by any Ford Dealership.

  4. Something annoys me about Chrysler’s DRLs. When the turn signal is activated, the DRL on that side goes out. It annoys me to no end.

  5. Greg, Never noticed that odd situation with Chrylser DRL`s. Since I live in the U.S., obviously very few Chrysler Vehicles are ordered with this (option). Next time i`m visiting up in Canada, I`ll have to check that out. I agree, that would be an annoying distraction!

  6. I am in Michigan. We see some Canadian vehicles, but it is easy to tell them because almost everywhere in Canada requires front license tags. Michigan doesn’t. Being in Michigan I see a lot of Chryslers (GM and Ford too) ever since the local Kia dealer’s sales volume died out in 2008. My local dealer was in the top three volume dealerships for all of 2007, but then in 2008 the local economy died. There are still tons of Kias running around, but the newest ones are few and far between. The dealer went from 250+ cars per month to barely selling 35 a month.
