Kia K9 Sedan begins sales in South Korea image

The South Korean based automaker Kia has recently announced that the K9 Sedan has begun selling in its local auto market.

The all-new Kia K9 is 5.09 meters long, 1.90 meters wide and 1.49 meters tall, riding on a wheelbase of 3.045 meters, which is offering generous front and rear occupant space. The all-new Kia K9 sedan should offer an alternative on the local auto market, for the moment, and the rest of the world, eventually, to the “classic” choices of BMW, Audi or Mercedes-Benz. The interior design of the Kia K9 is similar to the one used by BMW on its vehicles, starting with the center console and the button which is operating the car’s main features and ending with the gauges.

Under the hood, the new Kia K9 is coming with an upgraded 3.8 liter MPI V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 290 PS, but another unit, the 3.8 liter GDI, with its 334 PS, will also join the lineup starting next year. The petrol burner is mated to the company’s new eight-speed automatic transmission. Features available for the K9 include the 9.2-inch twin monitors for the rear seats, 17-speaker Lexicon sound system, 12.3-inch full size TFT LCD cluster, head-up display, Smart Cruise Control, front ventilated and heated seats, Lane Departure Warning System, adaptive headlights, Around-View Monitor with 4 cameras, radar-based Blind-Spot Detection and a lot of other “goodies”.
