Kia GT sports sedan for 2017

KIA has dropped hints it will introduce a production version of the GT Concept it showed at Frankfurt 2011 (right). The Euro-developed, rear-drive fastback is slated to be the brand’s most overtly premium sports offering to date, with performance to match its low-slung styling. “This car is a very important milestone in the development of the brand as a whole,” said Europe design chief, Gregory Guillaume.

Using the Hyundai Genesis DH platform, the GT is expected to hit showrooms in 2017 with turbo four and six-cylinder engines.
