Spy shots: 2014 Kia Cadenza / K7 facelift
Ahead of its official Korean-market unveiling, we are bringing you the very-first photos of the all-new 2014 Kia Cadenza (known also as Kia K7 in Korea)!
Kia released the K7 near-luxury sedan in its home market of South Korea in 2009 to replace the Opirus/Amanti.
The same semi-luxury sedan was supposed to hit the North American soil as Kia Cadenza about a year and a half later, but the South Korean carmaker postponed its launch due to the unknown reason.
Three years later, the K7/Cadenza appears to be ready for its U.S. market arrival. The model has, however, received a mid-cycle styling makeover and we have a proof of that.
These latest spy shots reveal Kia has given the car a whole new front-fascia which incorporated a heavily re-styled “tiger” signature grille, new set of headlamps and completely re-designed front bumper.
Along with styling tweaks up front come some subtle styling changes at the rear-end of the sedan. The facelifted Cadenza sports a new set of LED tail-lamps and re-styled rear-bumper.
Scheduled to go on sale in the USA next year as a 2014 model, the all-new Kia Cadenza will go head to head with Buick LaCrosse, Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima and just recently-launched Hyundai Azera.
