In the network appeared the first spy shot of the new model of the Kia, which is likely captured a pre-production version of the rear-wheel drive sedan. Its official premiere to be held in January 2017 at the motor show in Detroit. On the South Korean market, this model will be sold under the name K8. Photographed sedan appeared similar to the concept of the Kia GT, Koreans who first revealed five years ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Approaching the series version of the model has lost a futuristic design, but its clearance lamps (especially the line of lighting, the setting on the rear wings), as well as the air intakes in the lower part of the front bumper and front fenders are similar to the prototype GT. It is expected that Kia K8 is developed on a platform that Koreans used for premium models brand the Genesis. As for the powertrain lineup, the sedan will be available 3.3-liter V6 and 5.0-liter “eight”. In addition, the European version of the model will be offered with a diesel engine, and eventually at the K8 may receive and hybrid modification.
