The Kia Cross GT hints at the brand’s future design language, which the South Korean car maker says is “inspired by nature, driven by technology”.
A bold example of Kia’s signature ‘tiger nose’ grille sits prominently at the squared-off front end, with thin, piercing headlights flanking the top corners.
The concept’s chunky body and high shoulder line is contrasted by a shallow glasshouse and dramatic coupe-style sloping roofline. The roof itself features an intricate glass arrangement, while the rear comes to an abrupt end with a sharp edge and a vertical tailgate.
Kia is keeping details of the Cross GT close to its chest for now, although expect more information and official images to be revealed in the lead-up to its Chicago unveiling on February 7.
The Cross GT sketch follows a series of similar images of another even more secretive concept from Kia, a sporty urban coupe that will debut at the Geneva motor show in March.
