GENEVA, Switzerland - Kia has unveiled its Sportspace concept at the 2015 Geneva auto show, hinting at the automaker's next-generation Optima estate.

The Sportspace was designed at KIA’s Frankfurt design studio, under the direction of chief designer Gregory Guillaume. It measures 4.8m long, 1.8m wide, and 1.4m tall with a wheelbase of 2.8m.

The concept sports a low roof, large bonnet, vents along its flanks and "ice cube" headlights. It has slender side-mirrors, new 20" alloys with carbon-fibre insets and dual chromed exhaust tips.


The Sportspace is powered by a 2.0-litre T-GDI (turbocharged gasoline direction injection) capable of 185kW sending power to front wheels.

Inside it has a huge touchscreen, leather seats, sunroof and chromed accents. It has 28 rolling balls in the boot as part of an innovative loading system. The balls are automatically lowered by 3mm when the car is started as a safety measure to keep stored items in place at all times.
