Here's the first official pics of the upcoming K9, Kia's take on the Genesis sedan.

Front end looks very Beemer-ish. Rear end looks like a mini-Bangle-butt, again a Beemer style cue. Tail lights and side profiles kinda remind me of the Jaguar XF. Good looking car, but I wish it looked more closely related to the Optima. I think the Optima is a great looking car and should be the hub of the Kia family stylistically.

Gut reaction was Jaguar meets Buick. I did see the BMW shapes when I went back to look too.

Looks like a cross of Jaguar, BMW and KIA. Funky looking, not as pleasant to look at as other Hyundais and Kias.

Hey-This model is intended to compete with the Hyundai Genesis, BMW 5, Mercedes-Benz E, Jaguar XF, & other similar class cars, so it's designed with styling cues common with those cars. Looks pretty good to me.

I wish they kept the K9 name vs. K900 (sounds like the old school stuff), but anway I hope it's only standard with the V8 and no V6 to be offered. On their site so far they are just advertising the 5.0 for North A. ;D

Can't wait to see an M5 version lol j/k but still twin turbo V8 still waiting Hyundai come on you can do it wink.gif
