Two-doors? Forget them, says Kia

Kia may be billed as a youthful and ‘fun’ brand, but one thing it has no plans to offer along these lines is a mainstream two-door coupe or hatch. Two of its top designers this week said such a product was definitively off the radar. Case in point is the new ProCeed ‘Shooting Brake’ wagon launched in Paris this week to replace the pro_cee’d three-door. Head designer of Kia Europe, Gregory Guillaume, told the tale of how the car was axed, then revived once two extra doors were added.
