KIA Motors is one of the fewest manufacturers which miraculously remained unaffected by sales crisis. So they feel confident enough to run a stage at SEMA with four of their models which they are a bit exaggerating about them in the press!!! These are the models coming to SEMA:
this is what KIA says about their cars, funniest part for me is where they called Borrego ,sexy!!! All of them are craps, really!
KIA America Press Note:
On November 4, from 8:30 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. artist Pnut will be on hand to custom-paint pairs of Vans shoes, while visitors seeking the ultimate experience also can adorn an airbrushed tattoo while listening to music spun by DJ Sparx. The DJ will be back for more on November 5 and 6 with the tattoo artist returning on November 6. "We always enjoy attending and displaying at the SEMA Show as it really lends us the creative and artistic license to push the envelope of our 'Power to Surprise'" mantra, said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing, KMA. "The vehicles displayed this year represent not only possible directions for design evolution of the Kia brand, but also express the passion we pour into both our concept designs and production vehicles." Borrego Limited SEMA Concept An extension of the all-new Borrego midsize SUV, the Borrego Limited SEMA concept offers a stealth-looking version of the midsize SUV with a monotone black exterior enhanced by limo-tint windows. Lowered for a sleeker profile and outfitted with flashy 22-inch Avarus Chrome Wheels and Spec-X 285/45R22 tires, this Borrego concept projects an assertive and sophisticated stance fit for a motorcade as much as cruising down the Vegas strip. SEMA Rio5 Concept Prepared by Mobis Parts Los Angeles (MPLA), the Rio5 concept vehicle based on the 2009 production model is a tuner's dream. The Rio5, featuring Kia-genuine accessories currently available from dealers, also is intended to function as a test bed for potential accessories being considered for future Kia vehicles, including exciting audio and performance-related equipment. Evoking the true spirit of customization, the sporty hatchback is complete with a custom Kia-genuine body kit featuring: a revised front mesh grille; blackened headlamps; custom rims; revised strut brace and cold air intake system; a cat-back exhaust and stainless steel door sill plates. The lowered frame sits wrapped around larger wheels and tires by TSW and Goodyear. Soul Burner Concept Soul Burner is designed for the aggressive-at-heart. Dubbed the "bad boy" of the three concept characters, including Soul Diva and Soul Searcher, the exterior of the Soul Burner offers a "mean" edge with sparse flashes of scarlet amidst the black-on-black paint job. The paintwork is a nearly matte satin finish while the wheels are matte black. The only other exterior color present is a bit of red -- around the lower front air intake, the wheel rims and door mirrors.
