Kia Cross GT concept CUV for the Chicago Auto Show

Kia already announced they were going to show a new concept at the Chicago Auto Show, but at that time they only released one (bad) image. Today more images and information was revealed to the public. And like most concepts this one serves as a hint for the brands future design language.

At least it will be the base for the brands larger vehicles, and with 4897mm (192.8inches) it is big. Compared with the Sorento it is longer, wider and lower, making look more aggressive.

The powertrain used by the Cross GT is a 3.8 liter V6 hybrid drive with an eight-speed automatic transmission and torque-vectoring all-wheel drive. Combined, the petrol engine and the electric motor produce over 400hp and 677Nm (500lb/ft), while the batteries have a range of 32km (20miles).
