Kia K9 flagship becomes Kia Quoris
When Kia launched their all-new flagship, a rear-wheel-drive fullsize sedan based on the Hyundai Genesis, they named it the Kia K9 for the Korean market, but held off on releasing its international name. Now they have, and it’s called the Kia Quoris.
Supposedly derived from “core” and “quality” somehow, the name will take time to settle in, and is certainly better than naming it a woof-worthy “K9”. Incidentally, the car has been spotted at random places around the UAE, such as at the entrance to the Dubai Mall cinema, making passers-by do a double-take as they think it’s a BMW 7-Series.
The Kia Quoris is expected to reach the GCC market in 2013.
