We're sure there are going to be plenty of eyes on Kia at the Auto Expo. The South Korean automaker is making its debut at India's largest motoring event, and boy do they have the perfect party piece. 

The vehicle in question is Kia's "SP Concept." Now, there's practically no information about the concept save for a few teaser images. But Kia says it is "inspired by Indian heritage and driven by advanced technology."

The images give away quite a few styling elements, which we think will click with Indian audiences. The sharp body lines, the floating roof and the dual-tone paint scheme should make the concept looking striking. Of course, there are more wow ingredients in there, including all-LED headlamps and a sweet set of connected tail lamps. The concept features flush-fitting door handles (a la Jaguar F-Type) as well! 

Han-Woo Park, President of Kia Motors Corporation, commented: “All of us at Kia Motors are extremely proud to take our first steps into one of world’s largest automotive markets. And we are here to build more than just great cars. We aim to set a new standard in the Indian auto industry by providing consumers with world-class products and services, while engaging with and giving back to the local community.”

"Bold and stylish, the SP Concept combines sophisticated beauty, breakthrough technology, and high functionality in a SUV form," says Kia. What the SP Concept eventually evolves into, remains a mystery for now. But we're placing our bets on a Brezza-sized SUV. What do you think it'll be? Let us know!

Alongside the SP Concept will be Kia's full range of cars. The automaker has confirmed the Stinger's attendance alongside some electric and plug-in hybrid models from its global lineup at Hall 7 of the Auto Expo.
