It doesn’t have a name yet, but Kia’s new concept model for the 2016 Detroit Motor Show is a sign for things to come in the Korean brand’s North American portfolio.
“Conceived at the automaker’s California design studio, the concept offers an abundance of advanced technology – including state-of-the-art health-and-wellness technology – and takes Kia’s design language in a bold new direction, suggesting styling of a possible future premium large SUV in the brand’s lineup,” said the carmaker in a statement.
Kia released a single teaser image of the study that appears to feature suicide-style rear doors.
The Korean automaker had pulled its largest SUV, the Borrego, or otherwise known as the Mohave, from the North American market back in 2011, only three years after it went on sale. It’s highly likely that Kia’s upcoming large SUV will share its underpinnings and mechanical hardware with the Hyundai Group’s upcoming Genesis SUV.
