|   Thursday, April 11, 2013
Kia has also showcased the CUB Concept at the Seoul Motor Show along with the much talked about Cross GT Concept. This four door, four seat coupe design could be the future flagship model of the company in the near future. Kia has designed the vehicle in line with the much talked about Provo super mini and this could make this vehicle highly successful.

The Kia CUB has been designed at Kia's Seoul designing studio and was personally supervised by lead designer Peter Schreyer.
The CUB has patent Kia design cues such as the front grille, wraparound intake up front, conventional B pillars as well as rear suicide doors. These design touches are expected to up the style quotient of the ride and this plan has been fairly successful. Kia claims that the CUB has been designed aerodynamically and the sleek mirrors and side panels have been added accordingly.

The CUB could very well be the most aerodynamic vehicle from Kia till date and the vehicle sports standard 19 inch wheels which enhance performance as well as looks good on the vehicle. The CUB Concept is powered by a 1.6 liter turbo charged TDI engine lifted off the hatch backs from Kia and this engine displaces 201 BHP along with 195 ft lb of torque.

Kia claims that the CUB Concept is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH in under 7.7 seconds and this is quite fast considering the engine capacity of the vehicle. Although details regarding the drive train or interior have not been disclosed as of yet, the CUB could be an instant hit if Kia plans on launching it in the mass market.

Kia has installed the Driving Information System in the CUB to replace the traditional switch gear and this could mean a completely new experience for the people hoping to purchase the CUB as and when it is available. Kia claims that by using this technology, the driver can set his own configuration and the system remembers his settings whenever he logs in to the main frame.

The central console is the biggest control unit on the CUB which displays all the important functions of the vehicle for the current moment. This could be the way Kia designs it vehicles in the future and this could bring about a revolution in its own terms. Kia is quite hopeful of the CUB attaining mass following post launch and the hype around the vehicle has been high since being unveiled.

However, Kia is firm on the point that the CUB is not for sale and will not be sent to mass production anytime soon. However, it is a fairly successful design and this could be used on future models from Kia quite soon.
Although no such reports have been confirmed so far, speculations are doing rounds in the market. This vehicle has the zing factor around it and is expected to be well received in the market if launched. The future of Kia rests on the current launches.
