Kia’s not just dreaming big(ger), it’s taking giants steps towards that goal.  As proof, behold the Kia Cross GT concept CUV debuting at the Chicago Auto Show this week.  Kia Motors Coporation president and global chief of design Peter Schreyer allows that the Cross GT, “with its raised stance and large cargo area, allows us to envision the GT in the form of a full-size luxury crossover.”  The GT Schreyer refers to was introduced in 2011.  The Cross GT takes the fluid lines of the low-slung GT (see photo below) and pumps them up for the SUV crowd.  While the Korean automaker insists the Cross GT is “purely conceptual” the company allows that some of the vehicle’s “thought-provoking ideas… may one day find their way into a production vehicle.”
