K8: Kia’s new avatar personified

25

A modern take on a classic, the Kia K8 is a contemporary take on a sedan, reflecting the new transformation that the brand has undergone. The first model to be launched following the recent renaissance of Kia, K8 is an intelligent illustration of the brand’s new purpose and ambitions for the future. 

The futuristic sport sedan impresses with its sleek looks, bold new design, advanced automotive technology, and progressive engine. It is also the first sedan to wear the all-new Kia logo, with elegance from the front to back, making it a delight to witness. 

Taking the sports sedan space by storm, K8 builds on the success of the K7 and carries forward the journey of the brand towards excellence in this niche segment. The car is engineered to emphasise contemporary, premium and dynamic performance, blending the magic of sportiness and functionality with a striking exterior. 

The K8 has some prominent features, including a new signature frameless ‘tiger nose’ grille, which is crafted to emit a sense of dominance and integrated within the front bumper to give the car a spacious look, dotted with intricate diamond lattice. Adding further to the front elegance are the front lamps that include a star-like turn signal. 

The look is also enriched by the K8’s rear-end that grants the sedan a modern ‘fastback’ passenger car look, in addition to its tailored low roofline that consolidates the car’s exemplary sportiness. 

The 3D vertical clusters at the corner of K8 give it an angular look, adding depth and width to the rear of the car and making its presence more effective. What is also special about K8 is the fact that despite being stylishly dapper and high performing like a typical sports sedan, it is comfortable and offers a driving experience that complements its ergonomic, first-class interiors. The new model is a collection of the best in design, technology, and modernity, successfully redefining the modern sports sedan.

The Kia K8 was launched in the Middle East in September and has enjoyed steady growth and demand in from regional customers. It is available at Al Majid Motors across KIA showrooms in the UAE.
