The market start is intended for Septembers.
The Kia Opirus, the luxuriöse flagship of the mark, is introduced on the AMI in fundamentally revised form: The new Opirus, which is available immediately in the trade, has more balanced proportions, a still high-quality Interieur with new Hightech elements as well as a stronger and at the same time more economical V6-Benzin-Triebwerk. Were optimized also travelling comfort, handling and safety equipment somewhat longer of the 5-Meter-Limousine become, whereby the weight be reduced and the power ratings could be increased: The new 3,8-Liter-Triebwerk carries 266 HP out and accelerates easier the Opirus become around 122 kilograms in 7.5 seconds on 100 km/h.

Already after approximately 40,000 kilometers the armament has itself - which is accomplished by the enterprise of ecoengines - amortizes. The environment however profits from the outset: Those almost sulfur and soot-free burn make themselves the autogas drive in view of the aggravating fine dust problem a promising alternative. Beside that cee' D should be convertible in the future also all other Kia models on liquid gas.
Beside these four novelties Kia presents a sport execution of the popular small car Rio on the AMI in addition: The Kia Rio VSR has front and tail apron (including completely new bumper) as well as a salient radiator grille, Seitenschweller and headlight screens.
