FRANKFURT, Germany — Kia's B-segment concept, which is set to debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, is a compact crossover that takes aim at the Nissan Juke.

The unnamed concept features a dramatically sculpted hood and a high-tech interior. The Korean automaker has not released any technical specifications.

Kia said there are "no current plans for production."

"The vehicle's unveiling in Frankfurt will be used to gauge potential customer response for future showroom models," said Kia in a statement on Friday.

The B-segment concept was designed in Europe "with European tastes and expectations very much in mind," Kia noted.

Although no powertrain details were disclosed, the B-segment concept features a green outline around the grille, a hint that it may be an electric or hybrid model.

The concept is set for a formal unveiling on September 10.

Edmunds says: At the very least, Kia's B-segment concept suggests that the automaker is still embracing edgy design.
