We got the very first and exclusive spy shots of the Kia K7 Facelift (also known as Cadenza in overseas markets) while has been caught in South Korea.

This prototype has been caught testing in South Korea, where probably they’re starting the first real life test for the updated luxury sedan. According to the sources, the K7 was testing alongside a Genesis G80.

Released on January 2016 in South Korea (fall 2016 in US as Cadenza), is probably that the facelift model will arrive in mid-2019 and at the end of the year fopr the US-market, but this first spy pictures told us that a mid-life facelift isn’t that far away.

The pictures reveal small changes in the front and rear bumper as well as a new graphic in the head and tail lights, but the car has a high level of camouflage that not allow to see more.

Following the refresh of the Cadenza, the Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid variants will also be improved in order to accomplish Hyundai & Kia Eco Car Plan for 2020.
