While it's unknown whether Kia's new "urban concept car" will ever make an appearance in the U.S., a statement from the Korean automaker this week teased its appearance at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March. Kia's brief release on the concept car used titillating terms like "provocative and racy" to describe it, though the announcement was otherwise cryptic.

"With the company's signature tiger-nose morphing into a mischievous yet friendly grille and headlight arrangement, coupled with strong styling lines that exude speed and energy from every angle, Kia's newest concept vehicle is guaranteed to attract attention," the automaker stated in the release.

The news aroused speculation that Kia could be angling to compete with the Nissan Juke, the smallest crossover in the Japanese automaker's lineup.
