The attention generated by the Kia Provo Concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show wasn’t an accident. Neither is the Korean automaker’s follow-up concept, the CUB Concept.

Scheduled to make its debut at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show, the CUB Concept is described as a compact four-door coupe whose styling reflects the attitude of "trend-setting urban dwellers".

Although it doesn’t have the same revolutionary concept design as the Provo Concept, the CUB Concept does have a whole lot going for it, at least as far as what the lone teaser of the concept is showing us.

The most striking deal of the teaser is the headlight design of the CUB Concept, which looks a lot like what the automaker has on its Quoris luxury sedan. There’s also a distinctive strip running the length of the concept, which usually equates to a car with a sporty and racy character to it.

Not much else was divulged, but fortunately, the Seoul Motor Show is fast approaching and we’ll have all the details of the CUB Concept when they become available.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The new Kia ‘CUB’ is less than four meters long and is styled to appeal to trend-setting urban dwellers.

CUB is both sleek and small, with a super-smooth exterior, a cheerful face, a daring character and headlamps that feature two-point LED lights – similar to those on the Kia Quoris flagship sedan.
