2018 Kia GT Specs, Price And Release Date
We saw the concept of 2018 Kia GT in 2011 and it means we have been waiting for it to come true in five years. We have to admit that we forget everything about the concept, but when we saw a photo of a camouflaged car on the internet, it reminds us of the car. Some moments later, another model with heavy camouflaged was caught for test mule in Orange County. It can be said that this car is finally developed and soon will hit the market. It will be the strong rival for Audi A4.
2018 Kia GT Exterior
Our reliable sources mentioned that it will go with rear-wheel drive platform. The company will design it with a shared platform to Hyundai’s Genesis G70. As you can see, the new 2018 Kia GT was captured with heavy camouflage and it is still hard to predict about its new change. But, we notice the suicide doors that are gone and replaced by conventional doors. The front part is completed with chrome finished grille. The visible improvement is the C-pillar design in intricate look. The rear part has quad exhaust tips. Kia will add rear styling in a unique look that is in “Kammback-type” for a more attractive look than before.
2018 Kia GT Interior
2018 Kia GT is still hard to predict for its cabin design because all pictures that are available right now only could tell us about the outer part, we only found a picture of the cockpit. But, the hint is that its rival will be the Audi A4. Then, it should be completed with advanced technology. Even our reliable sources claimed that the cabin of this new car is better than the rival. So, the spy photographers revealed that the comfortable, luxurious and convenient cabin design will be their prior. If it happens, what we believe is its leather upholstery for the seats will come as standard as well as leather dashboard cover and leather door panels. It is even possible to see leather steering wheel cover. The dashboard and door panels might go with real wood for its exclusive look and the seats should be equipped with heated especially for the front.
2018 Kia GT Engine
Speaking about the engine technology, we expect that they will keep the same engine as the concept. It should use turbocharged unit 3.3 liter and V6 engine to produce 389 hp as well as 394 lb-ft of torque power. It will be paired to the eight-speed auto transmission that is the same as Kia Cadenza and Genesis G90. The optional is manual gearbox and it will come out with rear-wheel drive configuration. Rumors mentioned that buyers can alternate it with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinders. It is possible to see the hybrid engine with the combination of 2.0-liter four-cylinder and electric motor of 2018 Kia GT.
2018 Kia GT Release Date and Price
It will be the close rivals to German sedans and it will be more affordable with the starting price about $35,000 based on our estimation. The release date of 2018 Kia GT might be around the beginning of 2017.
