9. Kia Cross GT concept

 

Serving as a demonstration for what Kia sees as a premium crossover, the Cross GT concept car debuted in the brand’s booth.

At the heart of the system is a familiar 3.8-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission. That’s not all, though. Kia built the car to be a “parallel hybrid” by putting an electric motor between the engine and gearbox for a combined 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.
