KIA KND-4 concept
CNET Car Tech looks at the KIA KND-4 concept vehicle shown at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show.
KIA, which showed off new concept cars at the recent Frankfurtand Tokyo auto shows, brought another one out at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show. The KND-4 shows off KIA's exploration of what a future compact SUV might look like. The front of the car, with its raked windshield, is reminiscent of the Mazda CX-7, and uses LED headlights in true futuristic concept car style. The rear of the car is squared off, maximizing cargo room. The entire vehicle sits up high on 20-inch wheels, but it is less than 15 feet long. It seats four in individual seats inside its high-tech cabin. It has two organic LED screens in the dashboard for navigation, video, and Bluetooth-connected cell phones. The KND-4 uses a 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine sending power to all four wheels.
