Mystery Kia (or Hyundai) Prototype Spied Testing


Did we just see the production version of the Kia GT 4-door sedan for the very first time?

Published here are exclusive spy photos of a mysterious car prototype, which has been spied testing on public roads in South Korea earlier today!

Spotted running in a small group of Hyundai vehicles, the heavily-camouflaged 4-door sedan appears to be an upcoming vehicle of Hyundai-Kia Automotive Group.

At this point, it is not known whether the vehicle belongs to Hyundai or Kia brand.

Both options are possible, though!

Option 1: Hyundai’s BMW 3-series rival

Hyundai has been rumored of being in the process of developing a sub-Genesis sedan, which will take on premium rivals, such as BMW 3-Series, M-B C-Class and Lexus IS.

Codenamed RK (internal development code), the automaker’s upcoming entry-level RWD sedan is expected to incorporate Hyundai’s latest “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” styling DNA and will make its official domestic market premiere in the first half of 2015.

A few weeks ago, Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski confirmed a third premium sedan could be joining the Genesis and the Equus in as little as two years!

Option 2: Production-ready GT 4-door sedan

These could also be the first photos of a production-ready Kia GT sedan, which was a huge hit of the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011

The latest rumors coming from the sources close to the Korean automaker suggest that the GT will finally become a production model.

The reports go as far as claiming that the production version of the GT will hit the showroom floor within the next 12-15 months! [Photosource:]

    My bet is on the 3 Series rival. I just can’t comprehend as to why KIA would use the same tailights as the current Genesis.

  2. hisham says:

    It’s a Genesis rear lights, also the interior, look at them and make a comparison with new Genesis sedan and Hyundai’s latest “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0″ styling DNA.

  3. Andrew says:

    It could also be the R Spec variant of the Genesis that is said to be an AWD V8.

  4. attaboy says:

    look more like future BMW 3 serie killer from Hyundai
    it is definitively not current Genesis just bkuz of the distance of the wheel pitt and the fron door is too small or, it just a facelifted Azera! look similar to Sonata!

  5. Edgar says:

    The New Kia K4

  6. bd says:

    It’s Hyundai’s ES/MKZ competitor (a little bit bigger than the Azera but more luxurious).

  7. Bryan says:

    Great news on the introduction of the production of the Kia GT sports sedan. That is one fine looking sporty sedan and I long for it to be unleashed on us!
