Designed “in Europe with European tastes and expectations very much in mind”, the Niro concept hints at a possible future B-segment contender. In other words, the Niro could spawn a Nissan Juke rival.

“Accepting any challenge that the assured modern motorist may throw at it, Niro combines a mischievous character in a clearly robust and substantial yet stylish bodyshape featuring a mix of contrasting materials – including stainless steel elements – in compact, purposeful dimensions,” Kia said in a statement.

The company has yet to reveal actual details about the crossover study, but did say the Niro features “intriguing elements not always associated with smaller cars”. Stick around for more info from the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, which is scheduled to commence on September 10.
