Kia confirms $40K rear-drive sports sedan

Kia will launch a RWD sports sedan in Oz next year. Wheels has learned the car, codenamed CK, could be here in July and will boast styling taken from Kia’s well-received GT4 Stinger and four-door GT concept cars. Kia Australia is eager to run a two-tier range, with a more powerful, performance-focused version priced around $50,000. Kia’s 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 is the likely power source. “Engines are yet to be decided, but our strategy shows those two entry points are where we need to be,” said Kia Oz chief Damien Meredith.
