Kia Motors has released the first renderings of its new premium sedan - codenamed 'VG' - with an exterior design based on the new principle of 'sophistication by simplicity'. It will go on sale at the end of the year and will replace the Opirus/Amanti model.
The new model, currently known by its code name VG, was shown in concept form (KND-5) at the Seoul Motor Show earlier this year and is set to replace the existing Opirus model (known as Amanti in North America) in Korean, North American and European markets.
Hyoung Keun Lee (Senior Executive Vice President and COO of International Business Division at Kia Motors Corporation) commented: “VG clearly demonstrates the next stage in Kia’s design evolution and showcases our new design principle of ‘sophistication by simplicity’. The exterior is a seamless blend of powerful front, sleek profile and sophisticated but simple rear lines to create an elegant and luxurious appearance.”
