Kia's all-new extravagance leader, the Kia K9, has gone at a bargain in Korea, acquainting Kia with a new section of the worldwide car market. The striking new back-wheel drive will be propelled in various key abroad markets beginning in the final quarter of 2012.
"K9 is all about elegant simplicity, balanced proportions, and simple surfaces," says Kia's Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer. "The class-leading long wheelbase, the prestige distance, large wheels, sharply upright short overhangs and a long sweeping shoulder line all work together to give K9 a sporty, athletic proportion and a confident stance quintessential to a premium large rear-wheel drive vehicle."
"K9 is a clear signal of our intention and determination to compete head-to-head with European luxury brands. And for Kia, our customers, and for me - this car is like a dream come true,"
