Kia Motors has revealed interiors of its upcoming Super Sedan, Kia K8. Kia K8 interior has been designed with high-end luxury in mind and its beautifully detailed wood materials help create a feeling of calm and natural wellbeing while state-of-the-art tech connects the car to the modern world.
A contemporary panoramic curved display links a 12-inch digital cluster and a 12-inch infotainment system. The display is clean, ultra-modern and easy-to-use as stated by Kia. The K8 is the first-ever Kia vehicle to feature industry-leading audio from Meridian. The 14-speaker premium sound system from the world-renowned British audio pioneer delivers the finest quality in-car surround sound.
The K8 has an open, comfortable and luxurious space and the sleek, contemporary and minimalist style creates a wide cabin effect that is light in both touch and look. The materials used on the inside of the K8 have been carefully selected to create a complete high-class and high-tech cocoon. Beautifully intricate and detailed finishing on the wood surfaces – stylistic elements directly inspired by modern yachts – add depth and sophistication to the cabin. The luxurious use of wood is complemented by exposed high-quality metals that creates the feeling of youth and industrial chic.
The intricate diamond lattice design that expresses the movement of light on the exterior of the K8 flows into the interior of the luxury sports sedan, creating elegantly stitched patterns on Napa leather. Kia’s innovative ‘Star Cloud’ lighting graces the K8 interior, projecting glittering and interactive ambient lighting on the door trim and dashboard areas.
At the bottom of the curved display sits the infotainment system and air conditioning control, which is operated via touchpad, further reducing the number of physical buttons. The touch pad allows for the switching of operation modes between the two systems with a centrally located button.
Optimally positioned for the driver and front passenger is an ergonomic center console that features wood-based cupholders and glossy soft-touch switches, the latter sitting on a raised profile alongside the shift-by-wire transmission dial.
The K8 interior also debuts a new steering wheel design from Kia and the company’s contemporary new logo that expresses ‘symmetry’, ‘rhythm’ and ‘rising’ elements.
Due for market launch later this year, more information on the all-new K8 will be made available in due course by the company.
