Proving the 2011 Kia Sportage compact CUV can be both all business and all pleasure, Kia has again teamed with fashion and lifestyle magazine, Antenna, showcasing two custom Sportage concepts, created by Antenna, in “The Duel.” One of the customized Sportages is aimed at the recreational enthusiast and the other toward the on-the-go professional with cool gadgets, technologies, features and materials to fully appeal to all sides of the everyday male.
The matte red “Play” Sportage concept presents the fun, active side of the everyday male with a vehicle perfectly designed to pursue his personal interests. With new 20-inch MRR HR4 wheels, a custom Yakima roof rack outfitted with a red and black Cannondale QuikFX Bike with unique bike pedals and seat, drivers are able to stay active even at a moment’s notice. An iPod Touch was molded into the center console for easy access to today’s latest news and music, while the cargo area was transformed into a tailgater’s dream with a custom-painted locker, motorized stainless steel barbeque grill and 22-inch LCD television.
For the tech-savvy professional on-the-go, the metallic blue “Work” Sportage concept is the perfect vehicle for business. With a full closet and dressing station fitted nicely within Sportage’s spacious cargo area, the professional male has the option of up to two suits, five shirts and five belts for any work situation.
