Kia will debut a new rear-wheel drive four-door sports saloon at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
The concept name hasn’t been revealed yet, but if it ever did go into production the sports saloon would go up against models like the BMW 5 Series GT or Audi A7.
It’s doubtful a production model would go on sale in the UK, but it does hint at the design direction for future Kia models.
Peter Schreyer, Kia Motors chief design officer, said: “No matter from which perspective you look at it – this concept car is roaring with energy and ready for take-off.
“I believe the car is a strong statement from Kia: we are ready to fast forward to an all new chapter.”
Kia will also debut the three-door version of the new Rio and a facelifted Soul.
