Kia’s California Design Studio has come up with a new concept car to be shown at the 2012 Chicago Autoshow, called the Track’ster.
Based on this teaser rendering they released, it appears to be something like the Nissan Juke, a city crossover. It is based on the Kia Soul, the brand’s B- segment SUV, and according to Chief Designer Tom Kearns it inherits the Soul’s rebellious, individual and urban character.
Kia has come up with pretty cool concept cars in recent years, and has made – or will make – almost all of them. So although they say there’s no production plans for this one, you can expect to see it out in the wild in a couple of years by now.
Kia’s innovative and hugely successful urban crossover, the Soul, was originally created in the California Studio, the birthplace of the Soul’ster convertible concept that is currently under final assessment for production. Soul has been a hit with US consumers and in 2011 more than 102,000 were delivered to owners.
