Kia Motors has released official sketches of its all-new luxury sedan, which the carmaker says will define new standards for design and flair in the large car segment.
The ‘KH’ as it is currently known as, will be Kia’s first ever rear-wheel drive sedan, and boasts an advanced design with high-tech features.
Although the company has only released a few sketches of the KH, the car will be launched in Korea in the first half of 2012.
Based on the Genesis platform, the key attributes of the design concept behind KH are ‘distinctive, modern and classic’, which when combined with Kia’s current design language, are said to create a car that will stand out amongst its competitors.
The new car features a bold design at the front end and clean lines incorporating a modern headlamp assembly, front and rear, with a semi-fastback style rear three-quarter look.
“Our all-new flagship sedan integrates all of our key capabilities such as design, performance, high-tech features and infotainment into one-striking model.
“Although launch timings for overseas markets are yet to be confirmed, this all-new rear-wheel drive large sedan will definitely become the leading model of our line-up around the world, showcasing the best of Kia”, said Soon-Nam Lee, Kia’s director of the Overseas Marketing Group.
That said, there is currently no right-hand drive program scheduled for KH.
