A spy shot of the Kia flagship sedan K9 (export name K900) facelift (partial change) was captured. Kia pursued big changes everywhere, as if trying to overcome the failures of the second generation.
The front part of the photo uploaded on the Internet community has changed many places, such as bumpers, radiator grills, lights, and fenders, and the rear part is a new logo, a solid LED line connecting the tail lamp, and a reflector under the exhaust port. Also, the rear license plate has moved between the rear bumpers rather than the trunk lid.
The new K9 can choose between a 3.8-litre V6 engine and a 3.3-litre turbocharged engine, and the production of a 5.0-litre V8 is still unknown. In addition, we still have to wait for the release of the hybrid model.
The official debut is expected to take place within the next few months.
