Long ago, we were talking about that Kia Motors will add a “K8” to its flagship lineup of the K series, to feature a new vehicle that would be sportier and more casual in its appearance than the K9 (also called Quoris or K900 in overseas markets).
[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]While the sources said that “Kia has already asked suppliers to provide the auto parts for the Kia K8. This new car is expected to be a sportier sedan coming between the Kia K7 and K9 series,” today we can share with you a sketch showing how this K8 could be.
Considering the sluggish sales of the K9 luxury sedan, the new K8 — featuring an unprecedented even-numbered model name — could bring a breath of fresh air into Kia’s K series sales.
The ”K8“ is expected to share the platform and transmission with Hyundai’s latest generation luxury sedan, the Genesis, while succeeding the family look of the K series, which currently consists of the K3, K5, K7 and K9.
The specific launch schedule of the K8 has yet to be revealed, the source said. Peter Schreyer, Kia’s former design chief and currently the head of design at both Hyundai and Kia, was the architecture behind the signature ”tiger nose“ radiator grill for the K series.
PS: This car should be a fan art.
