Kia K9

Kia developed the K9 model and it seems that it will soon go on sale. This is why the carmaker revealed some of the specifications. The new sedan is powered by a 3.8-liter MPI V6 engine capable of developing 290 PS. It seems that one of the plans is to introduce a 3.8-liter GDI version of the K9 in 2013. If they really do it, the car will be capable of developing 334 PS. All the output of the K9 is being sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission and it also has shift-by-wire technology. In terms of safety, the carmaker offers a radar-based Blind-Spot Detection system, a Lane Departure Warning System, a Smart Cruise Control and an Around-View Monitor. LED headlights are also offered as standard. The K9 will go on sale this year.
