Kia to unveil KCD-1 ‘Slice’ concept in Detroit
Irvine, California – Kia will unveil a sporty, car-based SUV called the KCD-1 ‘Slice’ at the Detroit auto show in January. Describing it as “an alternative to clumsy, fuel-thirsty sport utility vehicles,” the KCD-1 Slice has flexible seating for six adults, a V6 powertrain, sport-tuned suspension, and a “fun-to-drive personality”. Kia says the Slice’s long wheelbase and wheels-at-the-corners stance give it an aggressive feel, while its airy cockpit groups controls in easy-to- access quadrants to limit driver distraction. The concept vehicle will make its debut on January 7th.
