Earlier this month Kia announced it will bring a new concept car to Geneva, that it called, "a great looking MPV".

We were skeptical about reporting on MPVs, but we had to post this one again when we saw the windshield. The No 3 Concept features a windshield that is continuous piece of glass that isn’t supported until it is out of the driver’s sight line. Of course this is only for the concept and won’t make it to a production car. Still, that’s a cool little innovation that we wouldn’t mind in a car, that is until a rock cracks it; and we have to pay the replacement costs.

Press release after the jump.

Designed by Kia’s European design team, led by Peter Schreyer, the No 3 also features the new ‘face of Kia’ with the front grille, head lamps and brand logo in a new constellation arrangement.

The 4045 mm long concept is finished in matt Titanium Grey with contrasting gloss-white accents and will be unveiled at 12.15pm on Tuesday 3 March at the Kia stand in hall 4/5.
