Merry and bright Kia CUB Concept

Automakers in their press conferences often use such expressions that we can only scratch the head. Kia CUB concept went the same way. Kia CUB, as expressed automakers, is a 4-door coupe. Understand it as you wish! Of course, this expression has long stuck in our circles. And we understand that it means "four-door sedan with a profile and roofline as the coupe." But, it’s not so!.. This is not the sedan but hatchback. But if we say that the Kia CUB is a 5-door hatchback, then the manufacturers won’t agree with us. Because the abbreviation «CUB» stands for "compact four-door coupe."


The concept’s debut is scheduled for this week in Seoul (2013 Seoul International Motor Show Exhibition runs from March, 28 to April, 7). The design of this “baby” has been developed at the studio in Kia headquarters in Seoul under the direction of Peter Schreyer.


Hatchback turned out to be not more than 4 meters in length, it rear door opens backwards and you can easy access to all parts of the interior due to the absence of the B-pillars.


According to the manufacturer, the inspiration for Kia CUB’s creation served 2007 Kee 2+2 Concept.


Under the hood of this model with four seats is a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine, which produces 201 hp. Unfortunately, Koreans don’t have plan to put Kia CUB into the mass production.
