Kia Sportspace Concept readied for Geneva

By Bob Nagy on February 17, 2015 8:37 AM

Earlier this month, Kia teased the front half of a concept it will present at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show. Although specifics on this D-segment offering remain undisclosed, we have a better picture - pictures actually, and official ones at that - of this concept's shape, character as well as its name: The Kia Sportspace. This elegant wagon is a product of its European design team charged with developing a vehicle that excels at long-distance driving. That means serving up speed and efficiency in a package that delivers maximum comfort and minimum stress on the driver and all aboard.

"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," noted Gregory Guillaume, Kia's Chief Designer Europe. Based on prototypes of the 2016 Optima Sedan that have been spotted testing in Europe, we suspect this 4-passenger wagon with a decidedly production-ready look of its own embodies a good deal of engineering, feature and design that  will define the upcoming Optima remake.
