Kia Cadenza / K7 makes its early debut

Kia Cadenza / K7 makes its early debut ahead of its official domestic sales launch scheduled for November 24th!

Kia has released the very first official imges of its stylish upper-end sedan in Korea. In addition to that, the company has also revealed the official export market name of the production version of its KND-5 concept car – an all-new sedan designed to satisfy drivers’ desire for refinement, safety and emotional satisfaction by creating ‘ideal’ driving conditions.

The Cadenza name is derived from an Italian musical term used to describe an elaborate, ornamental flourish for a concerto or aria. It perfectly symbolizes the dynamic sedan’s striking design philosophy and upscale image.

Sporty and sleek in appearance, Cadenza features a bold headlamp design with attention-grabbing LED surrounds and a purposeful, athletic character line. The prominent front grille and stylish taillights emphasize the car’s high-tech feel and are a continuing expression of Kia’s dramatic design DNA.

On the inside, there is a futuristic “floating” dashboard that highlights Kia’s uniquely innovative design approach. The welcome system turns on the exterior puddle and interior lights to “greet” the car owner, while the interior mood lighting strip, which runs along the dashboard to the door trim, creates a warm atmosphere within the vehicle.

Kia Cadenza’s dynamic design and driving performance, allied with a raft of competitive passenger-friendly high-tech features, will make it a leader in the large, luxury sedan market segment.

Available new technologies will include a heated steering wheel (for winter driving in cold markets), powered extendable seat cushions (for extra thigh support), automatic defogging of the windshield and ventilated front seats (for cool comfort in hot markets).

Soon-Nam Lee, Director of the Overseas Marketing Group, Kia Motors Corporation, said, “New Cadenza will showcase the continuing evolution in Kia’s striking design language through the harmonious blend of light and lines. It will also present a new concept in luxury sedans in terms of performance and technology.”

  1. Okay, is there anyone else that is getting tired of just seeing the odd looking face of this car?? I want to see the back!!! I don’t give a shit about the front or the sides anymore. I want to see the taillights and the integrated exhaust pipes.

  2. this is a nce clean look….now the inside look would be nice…..a 360 look would be nice….the hearth of the car,like the “engine”and details of it will also be nice…..so i guess for all these answers,we will have to wait until NOV.24th…ok….

  3. Yes Kia’s best car so far! They just don’t stop do they!! I am so eager to see the next Optima now =) – oh and official interior shots of the K7.
    I agree with the above comments, some rear shots would be nice.

  4. OK GUY’S ….DO A “GOOGLE”…..KIA CADENZA….THIS WILL REPLACE THE “AMANTI”…CHECK OUT THE VIDEO IT SHOWS IN/OUT AND 360….BUT STILL NO ENGINE, LIKE I WOULD LIKE TO SEE AND HEAR ABOUT….

  5. CHECKED MANY SITES,ON GOOGLE….THE ENGINES THEY SAID WILL BE…..171hp 2.4 LITRE(4) AND 273hp 3.5 LITRE V6…..

  6. I cannot find the video of the Cadenza anywhere. where did you see it? All I find is the Kia KND-5 concept video with a title of ‘Kia Cadenza’…

  7. Well I’m glad we’re not getting that vehicle down here in Australia, as large, 6 cylinder and even V8 sedans are a dime a dozen down here, just too many here now, and I couldn’t stand another Kia failure here in Australia. So Kia, don’t bring it here!!

  8. BJD,

    The vid is on the Autoblog site, but it’s of the KND-7 from the Seoul auto show, not of the final K7/Cadenza.
