KIA "KND-4" CONCEPT FRONT VIEW

Los Angeles Convention Center

With its high ride height, aggressive-looking rubber on all four corners and a two-door, sport-coupe configuration, Kia's KND concept caught the attention of those few show-goers who managed to at least find the Kia exhibit. Inside, KND-4 has one of those wildly-futuristic cockpits wihch might see production in, we'd say, about 2170 and on a flying vehicle at that, or at least one which disappears into thin air. The company says that "KND-4 is powered by a 2.2-liter Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) diesel engine featuring Kia's Active Torque Transfer (ATT) system, which, in severely slippery conditions, automatically distributes torque to the wheel or wheels with the best traction."
