Kia VG Saloon revealedThu, 30 Jul 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Kia has previewed the Kia VG - a replacement for the Kia Opirus
And there are no plans to bring the big, luxury Kia to the UK – at least not yet. Kia would have to shell out a pretty big chunk of change to convert the VG/Opirus to RHD, and at the moment they don’t perceive there would be sufficient demand. But that could change. Hyundai and Kia are rapidly moving up-market, but still managing to retain the budget prices that have made them a success. And they’re doing that by offering more European-oriented cars – something the market clearly wants. The recently facelifted Kia Cee’d is a good little car, and you can see the style-lead future in the Kia No. 3 Concept that showed at Geneva this year.
But the Kia VG/Opirius probably give us a clear indication of where the next generation Magentis will be going. Kia are keen to adopt a strong family theme in their cars, so the clearly elegant looking VG augers well for the next generation Kia Magentis.
