A reworked version of the Kia K7 saloon will be unveiled for the North American market at the Detroit motor show, with a revised interior and tweaked styling.
Known as K7 in its home market, where it has been on sale since October, the car is to be rebadged Cadenza for the US. It is a large saloon designed to compete with the likes of the Acura RL and Toyota Avalon – at 4965mm long and 1850mm wide, it’s slightly longer and narrower than a BMW 5-series.
The Cadenza uses a front-drive platform, which is also used in the Hyundai Azera. There are currently no plans to bring the Cadenza to Europe.
