2007 Kia Sports Coupe ConceptEnlarge Photo
The Kee is
a four-passenger, two-door coupe that could be easily mistaken for an
advanced concept from a European manufacturer. The influence of the largely
continental workforce is clear — the Kee looks like nothing we’ve seen on
The most distinctive design elements lie in the fascia where the strong headlamps and unique use of LEDs give it a menacing, animal-like face. The side profile and rear end are less aggressive but combined produce an overall attractive package.
Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer for Kia Motors and a longtime design luminary in the German auto industry whose portfolio includes the original Audi TT, commented that the design of the Kee is a strong representation of what is coming from Kia Europe and a realistic interpretation of what they have in store for their target market.
The Kee is powered by a 2.0-liter V-6 and a six-speed automatic.
