The Kia Company is very successful, and they have so many remarkable models. One of them is certainly the K9 model also known as K900. Now, we have some excellent news for all the enthusiast of Kia. According to official information, the Kia Company is working on the next generation of this remarkable. 2018 Kia K9 should be the very luxurious model, and as we know this vehicle is a flagship. Despite the fact that we can certainly expect the introduction of the Stinger, the K9 model will remain the most expensive model and the most luxurious vehicle in the Kia lineup. We’ve received some spy photos from the Testing at the Arctic Circle, and despite the fact that vehicle is heavily camouflaged, we will try to introduce to you this model as best as we can. Unfortunately, there are no so many reliable pieces of information. However, let’s start with the exterior design.
2018 Kia K9 Exterior design
As we wrote in the introduction, some spy photos are provided. However, on the testing, this model was almost completely covered with the camo and we are unable to see some specific details. The whole front fascia of this model will be completely wrapped in the camo. That just means that we can expect some changes here, but unfortunately, we don’t know where to expect it, and also we don’t have information about that. If we have to assume we would say that the grille will be changed. Also, entire hood is covered, which maybe means that there will be some changes here as well. The rear side will be also wrapped in the heavy camo, which certainly means that we can expect modifications here just like in the front side. Also, according to pictures, this model will provide some kind of a coupe-inspired roofline. Despite the fact that coupe roof looks very nice, the rear passengers will have a little bit less headroom.
Kia K9 2018 Interior design
The interior of this vehicle is very mysterious, and we don’t have photos of the cabin. We know for certain that the cabin will be very spacious and that the wheelbase is generous. Also, considering the fact that this is a flagship model, we can expect a lot of premium materials inside, and in general, very luxurious cabin. Unfortunately, we don’t have so many information about the systems that we can expect inside the cabin. The safety will be probably on the high level, just like as before. Also, maybe we can expect the newly infotainment system. However, these pieces of information are just our assumptions, and as soon as we receive some newly data, we will update this review.
Beneath the hood
The recently developed model will be equipped with a choice of V6 or V8 gasoline engine, and as we know the current configuration is the same. This model will provide a rear-wheel-drive setup for V8 and V6 engines. We don’t have information about the performances of the engine. What we know for certain is that we can expect hybrid variant with all-wheel drive setup. Also, we don’t have the performance of the Hybrid engine. As soon as we receive more official information from the Company, we will let you know.
Price and Release date
The release date of the recently developed model will be most likely by the end of 2017. When it comes to prices, Company didn’t announce official info.
