Kia has revealed a brand new urban concept car that it will unveil at the upcoming Geneva motor show in March.

Shown in several teaser-style images, the “provocative and racy” new two-door Kia concept sees the Korean brand’s signature tiger-nose – made famous by Kia’s chief design officer and now president, Peter Schreyer – morph into a narrow grille flanked by sharp headlights. A well-sculptured bonnet and deep, expressive front bumper, complete the front end looks.

Prominent wheel arches create a strong shoulder line that moves around to the rear of the car and into a rear tailgate and tail-light arrangement that mirrors the front end.

With twin exhaust pipes, slender wing mirrors, and wheels highlighted by a red ring surrounding a central Kia logo, the car maker says the concept will “exude speed and energy from every angle”.

While details on the car remain light, given a front-wheel-drive hot-hatch from the manufacturer has already being addressed – the Kia pro_cee’d and cee’d GT twins – and Schreyer himself making comments previously about building a genuine sports car, a rear-wheel-drive layout for the coupe could prove a possibility.

The Geneva motor show kicks off on March 7, 2013.

    Looks cool. Doesn’t appear to be anything like any Hyundais on the road. Thank God. But, I wouldn’t mind betting it will be built off the same platform as the Veloster.

      Does it matter? Car manufacturers share platform all the time. The last Clio was built on the same platform as Micra.

        It’s an observation, what’s the big deal?

          No biggie. Just the way you worded your post. You said “Thank God. But…”. Usually the sentence that follows has a negative meaning.

            Try reading it again, the “Thank God” referred to the previous sentence about the vehicles looks.

    Looks like a new Outlander from the front.
