Kia 7 sedan is heading to the U.S. as Cadenza


The Kia K-7 is already sold in South Korea, and it looks that Kia will be bringing it to the U.S. soon. A few of the Kia K-7, which will be sold under the Cadenza name in the U.S., has already been spotted in Southern California roads.

The Kia Cadenza is currently powered by a range of gasoline engines from a 165-hp four-cylinder engine to a 295-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine, and we expect the similar offerings in the U.S. as well.

Kia has recently take the first step provide much more luxurious cars to the U.S. market, and the Kia Cadenza is the first “better” designed sedan that will be offered in the U.S. If you’ve noticed, the Cadenza has many styling cues from the German sedans since its chief designer, Peter Schrever, used to be with VW/Audi.

The Kia Cadenza is expected to go on sale in the U.S. by the end of 2011.  It is good to have a few more Korean car options besides the Hyundai’s cars.
