Kia has revealed the first illustrations of the production version of its upcoming premium saloon codenamed VG. Shown as a concept at the Seoul Motorshow, VG features a new designline which has been implemented on other new and facelifted models as well. This car will replace the Opirus model as Kia’s luxury saloon, and will go on sale at the end of 2009.
“Kia 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,” commented Hyoung Keun Lee, Senior Executive Vice President and COO of International Business Division at Kia Motors Corporation.
