- Kia previews interior design for new flagship sedan
- Wrap-around cabin, sophisticated materials combination
- Advanced cabin tech, new human-machine interface
SEOUL, South Korea – Kia Motors has issued preview material covering the cabin of its upcoming new K900 flagship luxury sedan – and very cool it looks, too.
The cabin, for instance, is said to have been created in a collaboration with the brand’s design HQ Korea and the American studio in California. ”It’s elegant by design, with a minimalist layout, so the interior provides driver and passengers with a peaceful retreat.”
The intention, Kia says, was to create a wraparound design to ”create a refined and luxurious cabin with a sense of being cocooned”.
”It flows from the centre of the facia toward the doors,it surfaces trimmed with a sophisticated combination of materials – soft surfaces, tactile wood and metal veneers, and leather throughout.”
The minimalist concept includes new information screens and technology – intelligent lighting control handles ambient mood lighting. The 30cm screen has – Kia’s description again – ”is integrated to enhance the sense of calm and serenity” and only comes to life as a human hand approaches a switch.
The ambient lighting offers 64 colours and seven themes.
The all-new Kia K900 will be assembled in Korea and reach global markets (we assume that includes South Africa) in the next few months.
