Kia Track'ster unveiled at Chicago

Thursday, 2 February 2012

  • New Track'ster concept car created in the California Design Studio
  • Envisaged with a 250PS Petrol engine
  • More than 102,000 Souls delivered to US customers last year

Kia today (Tuesday 2 February), unveiled its latest concept based on the Soul city car at the Chicago auto show.

Powerful, dynamic and aggressive, Kia's new concept car displays yet again the distinctive design direction that the South Korean manufacturer is taking.  Track'ster is intended to be the ultimate sporting representation of Kia's Soul B- segment SUV.

Kia's innovative and hugely successful urban crossover, the Soul, was originally created in the California Studio, the birthplace of the Soul'ster convertible concept that is currently under final assessment for production. Soul has been a hit with US consumers and in 2011 more than 102,000 were delivered to owners. 

California studio Chief Designer Tom Kearns and his team have designed the Track'ster concept car in keeping with the Soul's rebellious, individual and urban character.

Currently, there are no plans for Track'ster to enter production.
