Mystery Kia (or Hyundai) Prototype Spied Testing
Did we just see the production version of the Kia GT 4-door sedan for the very first time?
Published here are exclusive spy photos of a mysterious car prototype, which has been spied testing on public roads in South Korea earlier today!
Spotted running in a small group of Hyundai vehicles, the heavily-camouflaged 4-door sedan appears to be an upcoming vehicle of Hyundai-Kia Automotive Group.
At this point, it is not known whether the vehicle belongs to Hyundai or Kia brand.
Both options are possible, though!
Kia, Hyundai Spy Shots
Option 1: Hyundai’s BMW 3-Series Rival
Hyundai has been rumored of being in the process of developing a sub-Genesis sedan, which will take on premium rivals, such as BMW 3-Series, M-B C-Class and Lexus IS.
Codenamed RK (internal development code), the automaker’s upcoming entry-level RWD sedan is expected to incorporate Hyundai’s latest “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” styling DNA and will make its official domestic market premiere in the first half of 2015.
A few weeks ago, Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski confirmed a third premium sedan could be joining the Genesis and the Equus in as little as two years!
Option 2: Production-Ready GT 4-Door Sedan
These could also be the first photos of a production-ready Kia GT sedan, which was a huge hit of the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011
The latest rumors coming from the sources close to the Korean automaker suggest that the GT will finally become a production model.
The reports go as far as claiming that the production version of the GT will hit the showroom floor within the next 12-15 months! [Photosource: bobaedream.co.kr]
