Kia Niro concept SUV targets Nissan Juke, has gullwing doors

Kia has revealed its Niro concept SUV ahead of its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.


At the moment the company isn’t saying very much about what’s underneath or inside the Niro, but from what we can tell the Niro is roughly the same size (or slightly larger) than the Nissan Juke mini-SUV.

The initial photos show that Niro is a 3-door SUV with gullwing-style passenger doors, has LED head- and tail-lights, a large pop-up widescreen entertainment and nav system, another widescreen LCD screen adjacent to car’s instrumentation, automatic transmission with flappy paddles behind the steering wheel, front seats that are moulded together with the centre tunnel, hill descent control, and all-wheel drive.
