Kia unwrapped its KOUP concept at the New York Auto Show. The car is a coupe (hence, the ‘KOUP’ name) that sports a rather aggressive styling, which is not what Kia is known for. The KOUP concept is outfitted with front and rear carbon fiber diffusers, carbon fiber side view mirrors, two-tone seats, panoramic glass roof, and Brembo brakes. Engine-wise, Kia has plans for a 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged engine with direct injection pushing 290 horsepower and 289 lb-ft. of torque at 2,000 rpm. The car also gets MacPherson struts up front and a dual-link arrangement in the rear for a nice balance in handling. The KOUP is also blessed with Continuous Damping Control (CDC).


It kinda reminds me of the Honda Civic Si:
