The australian auto news magazine “The Age” is reporting that Kia may bring its new first class premium sedan to this year’s on Frankfurt AutoShow in September. The K9, is ready to slot right into the market void between the Hyundai Genesis Sedan and Equus with styling penned by none other than Peter Schreyer.
According the source, Peter Schreyer said that a rear-wheel-drive layout is the most exciting for designers, but that he couldn’t speak about products that are “probably” in development. When it lands, the K9 is expected to draw inspiration from the BMW 5 Series, though that’s not exactly what we’ve seen from spy shots so far.
From the spy photos that we’ve seen of the big luxury sedan, the K9 looks like a Maserati. With side ports on its fenders, a set of aggressively LED headlights and a vertical grille, can’t wait to see the definitive version.
