Kia Motors Corp has released pictures of their first ever rear-drive car. The K9 is set to be introduced in its home market of South Korea later this year and will not be sold in Western Europe or China.
Kia spokesman Michael Choo confirmed that “The name for export markets will not be K9”.
Soon-Nam Lee, Kia’s Director of overseas marketing said, “K9 is our first rear-wheel-drive large sedan, created without compromise in its design, driving performance and new technologies. K9 sets a whole new level of standards and values in the large sedan segment, and its design will be another Kia demonstration of our brand’s power to surprise the world”.
