Interior of the 2011 Kia VG
Hyundai's sister company, Kia Motors, has a new premium sedan currently in development. Codenamed VG, the all-new Kia is scheduled to hit the Korean market in November this year, while international sales is expected to commence in the second half of 2010.
The all-new Kia VG will be based on the concept car which has been first showed at the 2009 Seoul Auto Show. It's exterior styling will not be far from attractive exterior design of the concept car. Kia's flagship model will feature Kia's latest design elements such as new "tiger nose" grille. It will also be equipped with LED technology in front and rear lights.
The VG sedan will be powered by a 275-horsepower 3.5L V6 Lambda engine. Other engine options will include a 2.4L Theta II engine and a 2.7L LPi engine (Korean market only). Powerful engines will be coupled to Kia's new six-speed automatic transmission.
Kia's VG sedan rides on a new front-wheel-drive platform that will also be used with next generation Hyundai Azera.
