Kia preparing Audi TT rival
Kia is preparing a rival for the Audi TT. A concept of the sports car will be unveiled at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, and could hit production by 2009.
The new model has been codenamed Project Snowflake. This is a clear indication of Kia’s ambition; the TT project under Schreyer was known within Audi as Raindrop!
The new Kia will be a front-wheel drive, although a 4x4 version won’t be offered. It will use an all-new 2.0-litre turbo, which is being developed in conjunction with Hyundai and will also feature in a hot hatch version of the Cee’d.
Also Kia is working on a Ford Fiesta rival, which is expected in showrooms by 2009.
