Kia has quietly announced the 2013 K7/Cadenza during a special event in South Korea.
As you can see from these images, the new K7/Cadenza comes with a whole new front end look, similar to the 2014 Forte, Cee’d, Carens MPV and K9 / Quoris luxury sedan. The changes includes a lower-mounted and sleeker looking front grille, revamped headlamps and a re-styled bumper. There's also new mirrors, front fender air vents borrowed from the K9 and added chrome detailing.
At the back, the sedan sports new tail lamps, a re-sculptured bumper and oval exhaust pipes. Meanwhile, interior pictures have not been released.
The Kia K7 is expected to launch in Korea next month, while the North American debut likely in the first half of 2013.
