New pictures of the all-new Kia Cadenza, or K7, in Korea, leak online

The new generation of the Kia Cadenza, also known as K7, has been officially presented in November 2015, but new images of the car have emerged. They do not present any news about the car, apart from a new perspective, very different from the studio images released a couple of months ago.

Set to be sold this year, the D segment sedan from Kia is said to be roomier and more refined.

From its pictures released in November, it is possible to say it will be equipped with a V6 3.3 engine, but it is not clear if it will be turbocharged as the one used by the new Genesis G90, with produces 272 kW. Nor if it use the same rear wheel drive platform present in its cousin, but it should. Besides being a must in the D segment, rear wheel drive was a feature the hideous Opirus, the car Cadenza replaced back in 2010, ever owed to its clients. While the new Cadenza does not go on sale, all that is left is waiting for it to happen in order to get all technical specifications on the new luxury sedan.
