Here we have the very-first spy shots of the new generation 2017 Kia Cadenza near-luxury sedan.
Spied in Korea, the Cadenza prototype wears some heavy camouflage that doesn’t allow us to see many styling details.
The new generation Kia Cadenza is expected to receive significant styling changes compared to the outgoing model, with the most obvious ones being the lower roofline and larger “tiger nose” grille.
As evident from these latest Kia spy shots, the future Cadenza model will also adopt the striking “cube” LEDs up front.
Little else is known about Kia’s upcoming near-luxury sedan, but there are some reports indicating that the model will be offered as standard with a front-wheel drive layout, while an all-wheel-drive set-up could also be offered optionally.
The current Cadenza is also available as a hybrid, although, the model is only on sale in South Korea.
The new model, however, will continue to offer a hybrid drivetrain and will also be put on sale globally.
New Cadenza release date
The new generation Kia Cadenza will likely be introduced early next year and will go on sale as a 2017MY. Photo surce: bobaedream.co.kr
