A picture of Kia’s new semi-large sedan K8 was released from a very close distance.
On the 19th, a number of real K8 photos taken very close were uploaded to the Naver K8 club’K8 Owners Club’. Many of the detailed features of the K8, which were difficult to check with just three official photos, stand out.
First of all, you can see that the area of the radiator grill is very large. In the picture taken from the front, the grille covers most of the front bumper. For this reason, the diamond-patterned daytime running lights and headlamps are protruding from the side of the car body.
The grill is elaborate and three-dimensional, as if it was jeweled. It is expected to create a very luxurious and sophisticated feeling by reflecting light in various directions.
The edge of the headlamp and under the bumper were also decorated with diamond patterns to give a point.
The tail lamp looks like a thick red plastic bulging out. It gives a unique impression different from the tail lamp line of Hyundai Avante (CN7), which is being discussed as a’like car’.
There is a fairly large step between the Y-shaped part of the tail lamp and the horizontal line. You can see that there are quite a lot of gaps between the trunk and the rear bumper and between the trunk and the body. The assembly quality at the boundary between the tail lamp and the body also doesn’t look so good.
However, the car in the picture is a test car. The actual K8 is not expected to be as severe as the vehicle in the picture.
Meanwhile, the K8 is expected to be released around early April after a pre-contract was made in March.
