All new Kia K9 seen without camouflage

By SYF77 on 08 Mar 2012



In the internet age, it is getting very difficult to hide secrets from the public. Politician’s private lifestyle gets exposed and images of pre-launch car model flood the world wide web. After Kia has released teaser sketches of the all new K9, the car was filmed in all its glory on a highway in South Korea.

Although the video is not in High Definition, it gives us a clear view of the front and rear styling. As mentioned in my previous article on the K9, it bears styling cues from the very successful BMW 5 series. However, according to Kia’s Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, he once admitted in an interview that the K9 will have styling inspired by the Maserati Quattroporte but I can’t see the resemblance.

The new Kia flagship model is based on its parent company’s Hyundai Genesis. Engine line will most likely include a 3.8L V6 with 333 bhp; 4.6L V8 with 385 bhp and a 5.0L V8 that churns out 429 bhp. The Kia K9 is expected to be revealed for its domestic market during the fall of this year. The rear-wheel drive model will be launched in Kia's domestic market towards the end of first half of 2012.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The only resemblance to the Maserati family is perhaps the giant tiger grille.
