Kia has just announced that they will be coming up with a new car that will go up against theNissan Juke – perhaps trying to steal a bit of the success Nissan has had with the overly popular B-segment crossover model. Teaser images has just been released and what you are seeing above is just the first of the few images. While Kia has not decided on a name for the crossover concept, its official debut at the March Geneva Motor Show has been confirmed.

In a press release, Kia describes the new crossover concept as a new urban concept car that is as provocative as it is racy. However, this new car from Kia will not be the only new kid in the crossover block, as a whole list of affordable crossovers will hit the market soon – crossovers which have just been recently announced at the Detroit Motor Show like the Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur as well as a new Honda crossover based on the Jazz.
Based on the trend in the market (more and more car makers coming up with crossovers) and also Kia’s current line-up of cars, the new crossover looks very likely to make it into production. At the moment, Kia has a couple of B-segment models like the Rio and the Venga. However, as sales for supermini MPVs continue to decline and sales of compact crossovers continue to skyrocket, Kia has decided to venture into this new market.
While the headlights on the concept crossover may look very peculiar, the majority of the design can be clearly seen. The prominent features include a slender grille integrating itself into the headlights. The bonnet sports a couple of air vents, indicating that the car may come with some serious power (remember the GTR-powered Juke-R?). The rear is adorned by full width tail lights, giving it a nice, elegant touch. The concept reveals that the car has a three-door layout, but a five-door production model can be expected,
When the car is finally revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on the 5th of March this year, more details will be known. Until then, most of the details remain under wraps.
