Seoul Auto Salon: Kia KDN-5 Concept

One of the major draws at this year's Autosalon in Seoul (2nd- 5th July) is bound to be the KND-5 concept car from Kia. A luxury saloon squeezing into the gap between Magentis and Opirus, it is due to arrive in the showrooms this autumn – Korea first, of course. Kia obviously want their slice of the flourishing luxury market and, in the KND-5, they have come up with a virtual Hyundai Genesis look-alike.

The special features of the KND-5 are its large, glass sunroof (seamlessly integrated with windscreen and pillars), LED main beams and 20-inch aluminium wheels. Several striking design details underline the concept nature of this Kia which, according to the manufacturer, represents an innovative approach to the design and technology of high-end luxury vehicles.
