With echoes of the Kia Soul, Scion xB and other modern compact crossovers, the GMC Granite Concept takes the professional grade brand in a new urban direction. These live shots show the blocky yet sleek proportions come off as well in person as they do in studio shots.

With a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, the GMC Granite Concept stands to be a fun little car too, even if it only rates at 138 horsepower. A rotation-shifted six-speed automatic adds a novelty factor as well. But the real task of the Granite is carrying five people around in efficient style, and the engine is sure to help in that regard.
