A few weeks ago, Kia released some teaser sketches of their new K9 RWD flagship. The sketches revealed a lot of BMW influence along with some cues from the Optima and GT Concept.
Now, two videos showing a uncloaked Kia K9 running around South Korea have appeared.
The videos show the K9's design having a lot of BMW influence. The side profile of the K9 looks like a 7-Series. The comparison of the 7-Series continues with the back end. The front end is a mix of 5-Series GT and Kia's GT Concept.
The new K9 will use the Hyundai Genesis' platform and likely share engines.
The K9 will go on sale in South Korea later this year.
