Purposeful design for all-new KIA Cadenza
Cadenza: a virtuoso solo passage inserted into a movement in a concerto or other musical work, typically near the end.
KIA Motors has revealed the new exterior styling of the all-new Kia Cadenza (known as ‘K7’ in the Korean domestic market) in the first official photos of the new model. The all-new Cadenza boasts a purposeful new design and will feature high levels of interior quality and contemporary luxury when it goes on sale in overseas markets in 2016.
The next-generation Cadenza maintains the progressive, contemporary image of the current model, and the sharper, more defined lines and wider, lower stance give the new model a modern and thoroughly distinctive new look – with key design elements ensuring the new Cadenza remains recognizable as a KIA.
Inspired by European luxury sedan styling, the all-new Cadenza’s long bonnet, gently rising shoulder line and swept-back roofline give the car a sleek, elongated silhouette. The window-line tapers slightly as it draws towards the back of the cabin, and kicks up sharply as it meets the C-pillar, giving the Cadenza a more purposeful, ‘lean-forward’ stance.
At the front of the car, a new reinterpretation of KIA’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille, sharp wraparound LED headlamps, and muscular fenders give added confidence and definition to the design. Distinct lines characterize the rear of the car, with squared-off bumpers, wide LED lamps joined by chrome detailing, twin exhausts and bold styling lines serving to emphasize the car’s width and convey a more assertive appearance.
