KIA Shows Off New Concept Car

KIA plans on revealing a new concept car at the upcoming International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September. KIA states that the vehicle will strictly be a concept car to show off the future ideas for a new small production car.

 Whether it will be a sports car or luxury sports coupe we are still unsure.  What would you like to see at Jim Butler KIA, a 300+ horsepower coupe or a big luxury coupe?

From what the pictures reveal, the new concept car appears to be a coupe with front LED lights and a stylish body frame. We are able to see a bit more on the interior that displays anodized paddle shifters mounted to a sporty steering wheel and molded seats. The interior also has icons on a row of buttons that suggest that the concept vehicle will have four-wheel drive.

Jim Butler KIA in St. Louis will keep you updated on the new concept car and don’t forget to let us know what your thoughts are on the new KIA coupe!
