Category : Concept Cars
Every year, the SEMA show gathers the best in aftermarket automotive equipment out in the desert of Las Vegas. Of course, the Sorento generally isn’t the first vehicle that people think of for off-roading, so Kia did have something to prove with the concept. But this year, Kia has a car that should put you in mind of an entirely different part of the country: the Pacific Northwest. ” The concept is a shot at imbuing the Sorento with a bit more off-road credibility, and truthfully, Kia did a very thorough job with it.

The exterior is inspired by the vibrant colors of South Beach and features a custom turquoise paint scheme. The artists at LUX Motorwerks have created a show car that is road trip-ready. HRE S104 wheels and Tiarra Luxury upper and lower grilles give the A1A Optima a contemporary aesthetic that’s completely at home in the simmering South Beach scene.
