China-only Kia K4 Sedan 1.6 T-GDi Photo Gallery

The Kia K4 is a new China-only mid-size sedan, based on the same platform of the Hyundai Mistra sedan, and ready to take a place between the K3 (Forte/Cerato) and K5 (Optima) and today we can show an extensive gallery of the new sedan.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Remember that the Kia K4 will be made in China by the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture. There will be two engines available at launch: a 1.8 with 146 hp and 175 Nm and a 2.0 with 162 hp and 194 Nm, both engines will be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.

Looking at the final model, we can see a mixed-car with a clear inspiration on the K5 (also called Optima in overseas markets), K7 (Cadenza), plus an interior close to the Sedona MPV and 2015 Sonata too.

The will come with a choose of three different range, LX, EX and T-GDi turbo model with more sporty front grille, alloy wheels and panoramic sunroof (the same you can see on the pictures). The sporty version will be fitted with a 1.6 T-GDi engine delivering 201 hp and 265 Nm. Alongside with the all-new 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.

The rear tailpipes looks like we’re saw in the recently scooped 2016 Hyundai Tucson. Also the rear tailights looks closer to the next-gen Sorento.

    Looks like an ’08 Magentis. Schryer is slipping.

      Agree, Schryer has to do better than this.

    If the k5 optima looks like this, they’re going to lose sales.
