The Kia Quoris full-size luxury, rear-drive sedan has been confirmed to go on sale in America starting next year.

The Korean automaker plans to price the Quoris between $50,000 to $70,000 for the U.S. market as Kia tries to break into the luxury sedan segment. Of course, the big question is whether or not the Quoris will attract customers at that price range, considering it also has real cheap cars in its lineup starting at around $15,000.

In addition, while Kia wouldn’t officially comment on a redesigned Sedona, the automaker teased for us to wait until the end of the year to hear some news about it. Recently, Kia introduced its 2014 Sedona after a one year hiatus with subtle changes. According to Kia Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Michael Sprague, the minivan market is still important to the automaker and its sales decline this year could be attributed to the lack of a minivan in its lineup. Part of that explains why Kia was so quick to bring it back to its dealerships, despite not conducting a major overhaul on the model.

    Looks good everywhere but the front. Looks like a decent 35-40k car. They might find some Hyundai buyers, I doubt Merc, Audi or BMW buyers tho.

    Kia Cadenza looks upscale enough for me, and is MUCH cheaper.
    And how about putting a name on it that I can spell and pronounce?
    DUMB marketing!!!

    Looks good but KIA needs to do like Toyota (Lexus) and develop a different symbol for distinction. That may help pull in the folks that don’t want KIA on the front and back.

    You’re 100% right. I drove the Cadenza the other day and couldn’t get over how cheap that badge looked on it.

    To be in that price range, I would expect at least Lexus quality standards, although styling is way way ahead of the ugly Toyota/Lexus designs. Don’t know yet until I feel the actual car if the quality of build is up to Lexus standard or not. Current K5 and siblings don’t have the solid build feel. Doors close with a lot of rattling noise like something inside is loose. Should close with a muffled thump like Lexus. Exhaust note should purr like Lexus too. The engines need refinement as they are little noisy and vibrations can be felt inside the car. Road noise and ride also need improvement. Those are my expectations.

    The Equus is no Lexus LS, so it’s unlikely this will be.
