Kia K9 flagship luxury sedan first photos released
Kia has released the first official photos of their all-new flagship sedan to be launched during the first half of this year in Korea. Referred to by its codename ‘KH’ until now, the company also confirmed that the Korean-market name will be K9, while the name for other markets as well as overseas release dates will be revealed later this year.
The Kia K9 is the company’s first rear-wheel drive sedan, having finally received their own version of the Hyundai Genesis platform.
No other details about the car has been released, other than the fact that it has LEDs front and back. While the Optima is known as the K5 and the Cadenza is known as the K7 in Korea, it is speculated by some that the K9 will take the Opirus name for non-Korean markets, though that remains to be seen.
