The Kia K9 has been revealed in its first official photographs featuring the sedan. It will be launched in its home market this summer. Initially referred to it by its codename "KH", Kia confirms that the Korean market version will be named K9.
The K9 appears to borrow many styling elements from BMW, very closely to its 7 series flagship model. Some of the things that stand out are the headlamp eyebrow accents, the low forward bend in the C-pillar and the rear end design. It is better looking than the 7 series? There'll be a debate on this for sure.
Kia's Director of Overseas Marketing Group Soon-Nam Lee commented : "K9 is our first rear-wheel drive large sedan, created without compromise in its design, driving performance and new technologies. K9 sets a whole new level of standards and values in the large sedan segment, and its design will be another Kia demonstration of our brand's power to surprise the world."
There's no other information on the car except that it could most likely share its platform and engine range with the Hyundai Genesis.
