Kia Track'ster concept: latest pics


Kia has previewed its new Kia Soul - based Kia Track’ster concept ahead of its launch at the 2012 Chicago Motor Show next week. The concept previews how a sporting three-door version of the Soul crossover could look, and it could end up being made as a third Soul variant alongside the five-door and a convertible.

According to California studio Chief Designer Tom Kearns, the study is an extension of the Soul’s "rebellious, individual and urban character".

Kia says that the Track'ster is envisaged with a 247-horsepower (250PS) petrol engine, which we assume would be based on the 1.6-liter or 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder units shared with its parent company Hyundai.

Although Kia insists there are no plans for Track’ster production at this stage, such a model would make sense for the Soul line-up, particularly in the US. Kia sold more than 100,000 Souls in the US last year, and the convertible version – previewed by the Soul’ster concept, another Californa-designed model – remains under evaluation for production.
