“We wanted to create something similarly graceful, athletic and confident, but not aggressive or overbearing,” says Gregory Guillaume, Kia’s European design chief. And it’s abundantly clear with the introduction of the new Kia GT concept that they have achieved just that.
While almost every new Kia design has been created for a front-wheel-drive platform, the new GT concept design has expanded to the rear-wheel-dive realm.
While some may take issue with the exterior design of the new Kia GT concept (some displeasure has been voiced over in particular of the headlamp design) there can be no question that what is under the hood is sure to impress. The GT concept is powered by a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6, producing 389 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
