Not even a few days have passed since the spy photos of the KIA K8 interior appeared on the Web, as the automaker shared the official images. The interior can now be seen in great detail: the flagship sedan has two 12-inch displays combined in a single curved body, expensive materials and the best in the industry, according to Kia, the Meridian audio system.
There are many attributes of premium cars in the KIA K8 interior. For example, the perforated seat upholstery here is made of expensive nappa leather, and decorative inserts are made of natural wood and metals. On the front panel there is a panoramic curved display, the left part of which is reserved for “tidying”, the right – for multimedia. The sensor unit on the center console manages the air conditioning system and the infotainment system at the same time, and you can switch between modes at the touch of a button.

The K8 Sedan is the first KIA to feature a 14-speaker Meridian audio system. Another characteristic feature of the model is the backlighting, which the company calls “Star Cloud” – it is positioned in such a way as to illuminate decorative inserts on the doors and dashboard.
The exterior of the KIA K8 was shown back in February. The four-door received an unusual frameless radiator grille with a diamond pattern and decorative patterns on the sides, and a single horizontal lantern was installed at the stern, visually divided into two segments in the area of the rear fenders.
The K8 sedan will replace the K7 model in the KIA lineup. It is expected that the novelty will be equipped with a 3.5-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of about 300 horsepower or a hybrid power plant.
The premiere of the model will take place in the near future, and sales of Kia K8 in South Korea will start before the end of 2021.
