Kia Motors officially released the first renderings of its new premium saloon which will go on sale in Korea by the end of the year. The new model comes from a Kia concept shown at the Seoul Motor Show earlier this year and it is code named VG. The new Kia VG is about to replace the Opirus model in Korea, America and Europe.

"VG clearly demonstrates the next stage in Kia's design evolution and showcases our new design principle of ‘sophistication by simplicity'.  The exterior is a seamless blend of powerful front, sleek profile and sophisticated but simple rear lines to create an elegant and luxurious appearance," commented Hyoung Keun Lee, Senior Executive Vice President and COO of International Business Division at Kia Motors Corporation.
