The Seoul Motor Show from 2015 hosted the presentation of a new concept coming from the Korean manufacturer – Kia Novo. This is an urban coupe based on the global platform for the C segment of the brand.
The Kia Novo concept represents the brand’s vision of the future compact cars, the name Novo standing for “new”.
The Cerato sedan has lent its chassis for the Novo concept, which has been adapted to suit the new car. Novo has always a brand new short frontal console, oversized side skirts and the back doors are opening opposite to what we have been used to.
The headlights have leaser and the exhaust system is chromed.The interior of the Kia Novo concept preserves the minimalist design, with as few as possible buttons and mechanic shifts.
Most of the car’s controls are present on a touchpad on the right side of the steering wheel.The controller has a digital fingerprints scanner, recognizing the car’s owner and customizing the car to his preferences.
Kia Novo runs on a 1.6 liter turbo engine working on fuel, with a robotized six phase transmission. Besides that and the fact that the car has 20 inch aluminum wheels, no further data has been made public.
Kia Novo will not get into production, but it will strongly inspire the future Kia cars.
