Behold the all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza!

The all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza was revealed yesterday in South Korea, less than two weeks after sketches of the full-size sedan hit the web. Known as K7 in Kia’s domestic market, it will look exactly like the model you see on these pictures when it goes on sale next year.

Kia says 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 look. Key design elements such as the Tiger Nose grille ensure the new Cadenza remains recognizable as a Kia. Notice the sleek LED headlights, long hood, and dual exhaust, too.

Unfortunately, the interior and powertrains are still a mystery at this point. Look for the 2017 Kia Cadenza to make an appearance at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
