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

Kia 2+2 Concept Coupe PhotoKia says that their goal with this concept car is to turn heads, whilst also delivering a great driving experience on the road or at the track.

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.

  1. What is the Kia Provo a coupe or a CUV? This looks related to the Provo. And it also looks like the coupe like SUV concept they showed in Paris this year though I can’t remember the name.

  2. The Kia Niro. That’s it. It looks more related to those two (Provo and Niro) than Kee. Also add the Track’ster concept as well.

  3. I think this is the (provo) concept, which could be a coupe version of the (soul), a real hothatch to face the (mini)! maybe….But imagine this as an (suv) and this might be the next (sportage)..

  4. I always thought the next Sportage was going to take after the Niro cuv concept. They also wanted an SUV vetween the Soul and Sportage. I can see the Niro inbetween there.The Niro is just a stunning design. I hope that this 2+2 concept has a better looking from than the Kia GT. I Also hope the production version of the GT is totally different. I wonder if this 2+2 is FWD or RWD?If its RWD then it would be a Mustang Rival.

  5. I am looking forward to the RWD Kia GT 4-door sports sedan. The way Kia is rolling now one will get a great car at a fair price with a great Warranty. For sure.

  6. Actually, y’all, I loved my 1999 Kia Sephia and my 2001 Kia Sportage 4X4 both. For all the flak the 2nd gen Sephia has received from the American media and the American consumer, I really loved (not just liked) my ’99 Violet Mist Sephia and only traded the car in with only 82,000 miles on it because I could. I wanted the replacement Kia built for the Sephia called the 2002 Kia Spectra. My wife ran (literally!) over to a Pepper Red 2001 Kia Sportage 4X4 with a 5-speed stick. The rest is history. Although I traded the Sportage 4X4 in on March 21, 2007, to Avondale Mitsubishi(near Phoenix) for a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS(that I love)I feel that a new, fair-priced Kia GT sedan in RWD could pop me back in to the Kia fold. Can’t wait ta start researching the Kia GT’s development online. When you can test drive things get REALLY fun, eh?
