Having already released a profile image of its upcoming KV7 concept, Kia has now provided an additional teaser of the van-ish model ahead of its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

Taking inspiration from the Soul, it’s not clear from this image or from the one already released exactly how large the KV7 is. It could be deceptively large like the Ford Flex and the 7 in the name would seem to indicate the number of passengers the car is designed to hold. That being said, it could still be as large as a full-sized minivan, or perhaps something closer to the Mazda5 MPV.

In an earlier press release Kia stated that its recent production models have stayed very close to the original design concepts that preceded them and so there’s no reason to think that will change with the KV7.

Check back for the KV7 Concept’s reveal with full Detroit Auto Show coverage starting January 10th. Until then, get more info on all the debuts at our Detroit Auto Show Preview by clicking here.
