The new Kia Cadenza sedan is the production version of the KND-5 Concept unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show. The model, which will be named K7 in Korea and Amanti in the US market, maintains the dynamic and sculptural exterior design and features LED position lights.
The distinctive ‘tiger nose’ front with its signature grille and headlights are evidence of Kia’s new self-confidence, and the traditional three-box sedan shape was retained, but was morphed into a more flowing design with a drag coefficient Cd of just 0.29.
The innovative treatment of light is a constant design theme.
At the front, second-generation LED position lights are used to define the width of the car and the shape of the headlamps.
At the rear, the combination lamp clusters also feature LED position lights which, together with the dual mufflers integrated into the bumper, enhance the new Cadenza’s sporty appearance.
Although the new Cadenza is shorter than the Opirus, the extended wheelbase (up by 45 mm to 2,845 mm), additional exterior width and more compact rear suspension come together to ensure that the interior offers occupants more space than the old model.
Body & Chassis: Four-door, five-seater sedan, with all-steel unitary construction bodyshell. Powered by transversely-mounted V6 gasoline engine driving the front wheels.
