Kia Teases 2+2 Concept Car Ahead Of Its Official Launch
The Detroit Motor Show is still a couple of weeks away, but that’s not stopping Kia from whetting out appetites with a teaser shot of the 2+2 sports car concept they plan on unveiling.
The new 2+2 concept was supervised by head design Peter Schreyer at the U.S. design studio in Irvine, California.
The shot itself reveals little, as it is taken from above and heavily in shadow, but what is apparent is that the car will be somewhat inspired by the Kee concept.
That was a well-received sporty coupe that made an appearance at the Frankfurt show roughly 6 years ago, but never made it to the production phase.
KIA NEWS UPDATE: Kia releases another teaser image of their new concept, calls it GT4 Stinger!
Eye-Catching Design, Sporty Ride & Handling
What can be seen in the teaser shot is a long bonnet, a large wraparound windscreen, and beautifully sculpted wheel arches. The short tailgate and wheelbase make it clear that this is a sporty model.
With the 2+2 sports car concept study, Kia is targeting a younger demographic that likes a sportier touch. With that in mind, don’t be surprised if this concept car makes it all the way to production.
Besides the teaser shot, Kia is revealing little else in regards of technical specs. That said, we can probably expect a few more teases before it is officially revealed to the world on January 13th.
Concept Car Predictions
A closer look at a slightly enlarged teaser image reveals more more details about the carmaker’s latest car study.
Let us share with you what we have found out about it:
– this is a 2-door sports car. Take a closer look and you can only see one door at each side of the body.
– it’s definitely not a 3-door coupe similar to Hyundai Veloster!
– it may be of a similar size as the above mentioned Hyundai sports car, but not much larger than that. Some media suggested previously that this could be a sportier version of the GT sedan.
– it is possible that the model features a “shooting-brake” rear-end design.
