But, K7Is blocked by a large wall called Grandeur.. To find a way to kick Kia K7Is developing a full-change model of, The spy shot is also appearing one after another.. Through expected K7 I looked at the changes in the full change design..
K series starter
K7silver 2009In years OneThe first generation model was released, It is a semi-large sedan that is currently under the hands of Hyundai Schott Group’s general manager of design, Peter Schreier.. At that time, Kia Motors, who could not find its identity, made the leap forward again. K I am the starter of a series.
OneEven at the time of generation release, it was shocked by the progressive and disruptive design., Currently on sale 2Even when going through a full change with a generational model, it surprised many consumers with a sporty design that does not look like a semi-large sedan.. Engraved radiator grill and, Z typeDaytime running lights are the biggest feature..

Existing K7Customers who have purchased are already showing uncomfortable planting of becoming an old car.. In addition, Hyundai Kia Motors’ new car launch cycle has been very short recently., There are reactions asking whether to launch the market without catching the defect..
Wrapping the front of the vehicle
Tiger Nose Grill
Specializing in the recent new car forecasts ‘Wow‘in Via spy shot K7 Full change prediction. The first thing that stands out is the Kia’s signature Tiger Nose radiator grille that covers most of the front..
The length of the existing headlamp extends horizontally enough to invade the place where it was located., Vertical also extended to the number plate. Also, the original engraved form is maintained..
Detachable turn indicator
The headlamp is designed to be thin and slender for the extension of the front radiator grille.. Existing Z type The character appears to have disappeared. In addition, a direction indicator light is applied separately under the headlamp to show that it is separated from the headlamp..
The lower bumper K7 Trimmed a little further from the figure to show the detail.. Instead, the fog lights on both sides of the lower bumper are removed., Only air intake remains.
Apply new emblem
Another big feature in this forecast is the application of Kia Motors’ new emblem.. last year 12In May, Kia Motors filed a patent for a new logo, 12In the beginning of the month, it is said that it has been approved for trademark right, and it is only necessary to decide when to introduce a new logo.

Here K5It is expected to show a silhouette in the form of a fastback as.
Full change 3Generation K7Will be released in the first half of next year.. As well as a new platform, advanced power trains and various advanced equipment will be applied., I am looking forward to seeing how the competition with Grandeur will flow in the future..
