Kia has released the first teaser photos of is new urban concept car. Kia offered little official word on the unnamed concept, saying only that it was designed to be "provocative and racy."

"With the company’s signature tiger-nose morphing into a mischievous, yet friendly, grille and headlight arrangement, coupled with strong styling lines that exude speed and energy from every angle, Kia’s newest concept vehicle is guaranteed to attract attention," said Kia in a statement.

Kia’s new baby will rival the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur, and a new Honda Jazz-based crossover.

Even though Kia already sells the Rio and Venga, it is clear that the new concept will influence future Kia’s, especially since compact crossovers sales are going through the roof.

In this pictures we can see most of the design, including the narrow grille blending into the headlights at the front, a pair of sporty bonnet vents and full width taillights at the rear, too.
