Kia is hitting SEMA as hard as ever this year with a new crop of cars to work with, including the stylish little five-door Rio hatchback. These two concepts, the Hockey and Surf, demonstrate not just the tuner-worthy basis the Rio provides, but its utility as a hatchback as well. Both cars are customized by Antenna.
The Rio Surf, the copper-toned car in the gallery below, features a custom body kit, a surf rack, waterproof vinyl interior and woven floormats, and a custom rear compartment designed to hold all of the gear you'd need for a day at the beach--right down to a vinyl record player.
The Forte Hockey hatch sports a Kia Koup front bumper, carbon fiber-wrapped roof and rear diffuser, lowering springs, black vinyl interior with a black suede headliner, two 7-inch monitors in the rear headrests, a rear hatch area converted to house all the hockey gear you can imagine, and a range of other interior tweaks.
