K9 teasers highlight advanced features and technology new to Kia April 25th, 2012

We’re only one week away from the official Korean market launch of the Kia K9, our new flagship luxury sedan (export name yet to be announced). The anticipation is reaching a fever pitch here at Kia’s global headquarters in Seoul, Korea, especially with our domestic launch team teasing the local market with videos calling out special features and technology new to Kia.

We’ve embedded a few videos below, and even though the captions are in Korean, you can still get a good grasp of the advanced new features. Check them out, and be sure to let us know what you think.

Adaptive Full LED Headlights

The two videos below feature our new adaptive full LED headlights, which are comprised of 16 individual LEDs that bend and adjust automatically to changes in steering, car speed and road incline.

    This car deserves a name that not only represents the car but the whole of Kia as a reputable brand. This car should also represent Kia customers as individuals who know exactly what they want; that of preference, good taste and knowledge of great value. The 2013 “Kia Prestige” is that name.
