SEOUL, South Korea - Kia will debut a radical new concept, the SportSpace, at the 2015 Geneva auto show on March 3 2015.

According to Kia: "Created for long-distance driving, the SportSpace has been designed for fast and efficient travel with maximum comfort and minimal stress, in the best grand touring tradition of the weekend getaway."


Images of the SportSpace reveal it be a long-wheelbase estate concept which likely previews the automaker's next-generation Optima. The concept sports a low roof, large bonnet, vents along its flanks and "ice cube" headlights. It has slender side-mirrors, new alloy rims and dual chromed exhaust tips.

Inside it has a huge touchscreen, leather seats, sunroof and chromed accents. Kia hasn’t revealed dimensions of its concept but viewed in profile it could be quite large.

The SportSpace was designed at KIA’s Frankfurt design studio, under the direction of chief designer Gregory Guillaume.

Guillaume said: "We set out to design a car that is a totally new breed of grand tourer – one for active people who need reasonable cargo space on the weekend, but don’t want to compromise moving around in style, comfort and with an element of sportiness."

More details will be revealed at the 2015 Geneva show - Wheels24 will tell you all about it then.
