At the 2011 North American International Motor Show in
Detroit, Kia Motors unveiled the KV7 concept car.
The Kia KV7 concept is a versatile MPV concept with multi-configuration
seating and a complicated door arrangement.
The interior of the Kia KV7 is accessed through a combination
of conventional front doors and gullwing rear doors. Kia's
engineers have also eliminated the B-pillar, meaning that
when both front and rear doors are open there is a tremendous
amount of access room.
The seats of the Kia KV7 can be swiveled 360 degrees on
their base, allowing the occupants to sit facing each
other when the vehicle is parked up for a more comfortable
and informal atmosphere.
Although the Kia KV7 is being introduced as a concept
car, in the official press release Kia made sure to mention
the fact that most of their recent concept cars have made
it to production in one form or another. Considering the
Kia KV7 displays a production feasible design (excluding
the fancy doors) it could pave the way for a new MPV model
in the next few years.
The KV7 concept is powered by Kia's new Theta II 2.0-liter
GDI turbocharged engine, which is capable of delivering
up to 285 horsepower. It is mated to a six-speed automatic
