One thing Kia has never been accused of is being on the cutting edge of style. That may change with news that the Korean automaker has hired on Volkswagen's advanced design chief, Peter Schreyer, to head up its global design operation. Schreyer is the guy responsible for Audi's Bauhaus flava and has lately been laying low over at Volkswagen designing such shapes as the Concept-R roadster. Word has it that Schreyer has been unhappy at VW/Audi for some time due to differences with VW's design chief Murat Gunak. What does this mean for Kia? We can expect future designs from the automaker to include copious amounts of style along with their trademark value.
