Kia has officially dropped the first official images of its new flagship sedan that will be launched during the first half of 2012 in its home market.
The sedan will be known as the Kia K9 in Korea – internally it is codenamed the KH. Kia will reveal another name for the model when it makes its way to international markets.
Technical details are still being kept under the wraps but we do know that the K9 sedan will share its platform and mechanical hardware with the Hyundai Genesis sedan. With that in mind, it may get the Genesis’ 3.8 liter V6 and its 4.6 liter V8 – however, we doubt Kia will use the 5.0 liter V8 as its Hyundai sibling.
We’ll have to wait and see.
