Exterior-wise, the concept adapts a futuristic design which seems to be exclusively designed for young car buyers. A long hood, wide stance and semi-floating roofline all exude a youthful and sporty vibe. However, the most distinguished part on the outside is the front face.
It looks rugged and aggressive with a bigger tiger-nose grille with more flair. Flanking that grille is now new pair of headlights with distinct LED DRLs, making the façade more eye-catching together with a refined front bumper.

The side profile features big 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in bulky tires, sharp character lines and plastic wheel lip moldings while the rear is prominent with new stylish bumper.
Sadly, we have no images of the inside, but Kia says that the SP Concept will come with a modern, ergonomic and “sensually-designed” cabin. Likewise, it will be replete with high-tech elements which have not been disclosed. Perhaps those are digital displays, a touchscreen infotainment system supporting wireless connectivity or something just like that.
We are unsure of a production version of the Kia SP Concept
