The Kia K2 hatchback will debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show early next week and this indeed is a true world debut. For those who can’t wait that long; here we have the new car from all sides including a pleasant surprise in the shape of a K2 Sport.
The K2 hatchback is based on the Kia K2 sedan that debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show in April and was listed in July. The Kia K2 is made in China by the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture. Engines: 1.4 with 107hp and a 1.6 123hp mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Price of the hatchback will start around 70.000 yuan.
K2 hatchback will get a sportier image than the sedan. But if a standard K2 hatch ain’t sporty enough there is this:
Yez we like it very much. Spoilers, big wheels, fast alloys, black with orange racing stripes!, good Kia. Not sure yet whether this is just a show car or for real, we will know more about it next week.
This we do not like. Kia K2 Sport comes with a automatic gearbox. Bad Kia…
