This Kia mini SUV maybe use the same engines than his brother. The ix25 is currently available on the Chinese market with two petrol engines (Gamma MPi 1.4 and 1.6 with 90 and 126 hp, the 2.0 MPi is top-spec variant).

Probably also include two diesel CRDi engines, from the U2 family, the 1.4 & 1.6 with 90 and 110 hp. The concept uses a 1.6 Turbo GDi delivering 201 hp.

Looking at the pictures, the car looks like a small Sportage, using same style-designed taillights, fenders. Any details transcend about the markets where it will available. Stay tuned for more details soon!

    Uff.. viendolo me gusta aunque la ”Tiger nose” me recuerda mucho a la boca del Guasón, no a ningún otro modelo ni nada, el trabajo que se realiza en KIA es impresionante e increíble también se ve el esfuerzo y las horas para que nos deleiten con su primer B-SUV aunque por cierto lleva el apellido Concept nada más. Pero de seguro que mas de uno querra tener este modelo en su Garage durante el año que viene digo yo. Saludos desde Paraguay The Korean Car Blog!

      Hey Osvaldo! Pues si, este modelo tendra un modelo de produccion y bastante parecido al concept, quitando faros led y demas. El modelo definitivo ya lleva un tiempo rodando por Corea del Sur con camuflaje. Pincha en el Tag “KC” y veras mas sobre este modelo! Saludos y gracias por leernos!

    Awful. It’s like Citroen cactus. But uglier. And we all know how that worked out for Citeoen. I really hope the next Sportage takes zero cues from this.

    Not bad looking. Kia gets more and more perfect. I grew up with Kias development. Ist getting the best brand in the world in my opinion. Practical sharp looking cars for reasonable prices.I only wish Optima Kombi and Kia Cargo for European market.
    And dont dare to compare european waste with Asian King.

    • Carlos Caramujo

      So do I. Kia >>>> rest.

      • Kialover

        What did you mean Carlos? Kia rest or Kia best. I hope Kia best.
        Because KIA is in my opinion the most practical car . You have much place inside , the technology gets more and more reliable,outside all models are beautiful and finally the prices are also reasonable. Tell me one brand (especially in Europe) that offers you the things mentioned above. You wont do that because they got greedy and lost passion for building cars for the people. They just build for their profit. Therefore in my opinion KIA is the best brand. Keep going Asian Kia. Im with you forever. Greetings by the Turk from Germany for all Kia supporters.

            OH OK. Thanks. I did not know that this signs have meaning. This Kia site is good for learning, too.
            This shows that you can find rather Kia friends than haters which is realy a pity because I realy want to bring them to the right path.

    Please be aware that this is just a concept car. The real KC will surely be Gangnam Style. And the concept is definitely not like Citroen Cactus.
    Cactus is only one example for the upcoming End of European automotive. And im afraid that they already know it and arent able to do something against it. Long live rising Asian Power.
