Based on the VG, the Kia KND-5 features an exterior with a newly interpreted line and the striking LED headlamps of a luxury sedan.

KND-5 employs the same color for its body on the door handles and has a powerful, muscular profile.


The panorama sunroof extends seamlessly from the front windshield to contribute to its open and sleek facade.


The Kia KND-5 measures 4,945mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,475mm high with a wheelbase of 2,845mm. The concept car is outfitted with a 3.5L V6 Lambda engine.


Hyoung-Keun Lee, Senior Executive Vice President & COO, International Business Division, said, ???The aggressive and sophisticated KND-5 exemplifies Kia???s futuristic design and values. As a concept car that presents the new direction of luxury sedan design, KND-5 will likely generate a lot of buzz at the Seoul Motor Show.??
