  • Kia Habaniro concept leaked

    It appears Kia's surprise debut for the 2019 New York International Auto Show has been spoiled. The South Korean brand plans to show off the Habaniro concept at the upcoming show and a photo has dropped ahead of time. The sole low-quality image of the Habaniro comes from a New York show newsletter sent via email. Either Kia purposefully wanted to create some buzz, or it was a major slip-up. Nonetheless, the photo doesn't reveal the entire concept car, just the front fascia and side profile.

  • Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter concept
