Kia has dropped the first renderings of its premium sedan due to go on sale in Korea at the end of this year. Currently known by its code name VG, the premium Kia Sedan will make its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and will replace the existing Opirus model in Korean, North American and European markets.
“VG clearly demonstrates the next stage in Kia’s design evolution and showcases our new design principle of ‘sophistication by simplicity’. The exterior is a seamless blend of powerful front, sleek profile and sophisticated but simple rear lines to create an elegant and luxurious appearance,” said Hyoung Keun Lee, Senior Executive Vice President and COO of International Business Division at Kia Motors Corporation.
Power for the production model will come from a 3.5L V6 making 277-hp. A 2.4L 4-cylinder model is also expected to be made available.
There are no current plans to bring this model to the UK market.
