Kia is in good shape and growing a lot … but not enough for the booming Korean brand. Its leaders want more, much more, and so set up some months ago and one roadmap full of great new features product. The goal is to get closer now in Europe to 600,000 units sold per year, and they know that the moment is impossible without further expand range to enter, stronger than ever, in major market segments. In 2017, in fact, it is estimated that close to 470,000 cars registered.

For now this new concept is being studied, but to evolve as the market is evolving is more than likely to be officially confirmed soon.

That is, gasoline can imagine thrusters 1.0 T-3 cylinder GDI Y 120 hp or the 1.4 T-GDI 4 and 140, while in Diesel 1.6 CRDi 95, 11 and 136 CV range conform. Do not rule out, though, a more powerful engine to marry this sports concept model.

For now, Kia engineers internationally ruled that the 2018 Cee’d family and new models arrive electric variants, but betting the sub-hybridization mild hybrid with 48V system to reduce emissions without firing costs. This SUV promises of course, but … what will be on the market?
