Kia No 3: surprise star for Geneva Motor Show?

Kia is set to reveal a new concept at the next week, and it’s named the No 3.

Don’t worry, it’s not a bizarre three-seater. Rather it looks like it offers generous space for four in a vaguely -sized package. More importantly, it debuts the new 'face of Kia' in its front-end design.

To us it seems Kia has been taking inspiration from Ford in the new headlamp, grille and badge arrangement. And the No 3 may in fact be a pre-emptive strike against the forthcoming Ford 'B-Max' – a more passenger-friendly replacement for the Ford Fusion.

The Kia No 3 is just over four metres long. The most striking aspect of its attractive appearance is the enormous windscreen/panoramic roof with its diagonal supporting spar. This incorporates an automatic sunvisor.

Finished in matt titanium grey with white accents, the No 3 could well be one of the surprise stars of Geneva. 

Which? car experts will be at the on 3rd and 4th March to report their first impressions of all the new cars on display, including the Kia No 3.
