Vehicles that make an appearance at SEMA are often out of the ordinary and rarely make it to production lines. That said, there have been some pretty unique creations in the past and this year, Kia looked to top that list. This year the automaker packed six vehicles in its holster.
To start things off, the ever popular Kia Optima lost its roof and got custom teal paint and rear suicide doors. The ride height was lowered and the entire thing sits on 20 inch wheels and Ksport coilover suspension.
Under the hood is the same engine as the average Kia Optima, a turbocharged four cylinder capable of 245 hp, but the automaker also threw in a high-performance exhaust.
The most interesting of Kia’s SEMA vehicles was the Forte Koup Mud Bogger. Equipped with 28 inch off-road tires, the Forte Koup Mud Bogger also received a four inch lift to take on tough terrain.
The carpet was removed and replaced with Line-X protective coating. The front seats were upgraded to Sparco Evo II Red Race Seats. To finish it all off, a powder white roll cage matched the wheels.
We here at Kia of Augusta were thrilled to see what Kia brought to SEMA this year!
