Kia ha just released several renderings of a new full-sized sedan, with the code name VG. Shown as a concept at the Seoul Auto Show earlier this year, these renders are intended to give a better idea of what the new car will look like.

Kia has also confirmed that the new model will replace the Opirus (known as the Amanti in North America).

“VG clearly demonstrates the next stage in Kia’s design evolution and showcases our new design principle of ‘sophistication by simplicity’,” said Kia’s Senior VP Hyoung Keun Lee. “The exterior is a seamless blend of powerful front, sleek profile and sophisticated but simple rear lines to create an elegant and luxurious appearance.”

We can certainly say this new model is a huge step forward from the less-than-attractive Amanti.

There are no specifics for a launch date but the VG is expected to debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next year.
