You know Kia for its consistent portfolio of sleek, safe, and highly functional vehicles, but something you might not have seen coming is in the works. The South Korean automaker just made a lot of noise at this year’s New York International Auto Show, which took place around the corner in New York City, New York.
The big news? Kia will roll out four all-new models for 2019.
Dying to see which ones are getting a makeover? You’ll have to keep reading to find out.
Watchlist: The 4 New Kia Models Debuting in 2019
The first generation of this full-size luxury sedan was impressive enough, but the creative geniuses at Kia are kicking things up a notch with the reboot. The 2019 Kia K900 will look even more dignified than its predecessor, thanks to sweeping lines and a signature quadric-patterned grille.
Spacious, leather-trimmed seating will await both driver and passengers. So will a Human Machine Interface that displays navigation, entertainment, climate control, and more. But none of these upgrades come at the expense of power. The new Kia K900 will pack a 365-horsepower twin turbo V6 engine.
Other midsize carmakers are sweating after seeing the rejuvenated Optima — and they should be. The 2019 model of this sedan will pair available Stinger-like LED daytime running lights with an athletic matte-finish grille. But it doesn’t just look sporty. With a 178-horsepower engine option, the new Optima will be more than capable of holding its own.
Standard push-button start, available Smart Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, and a smart trunk are just a few of the perks come with the new Optima. And if you’re one of those people who likes a lot of options, you won’t be let down. Four trim levels will be produced.
The new and improved Sedona will impart some trendy, CUV-like flavor into the minivan segment. The 2019 model looks to boast fresh design elements like a signature tiger-nose grille with a highly-detailed mesh pattern and an available dual sunroof.
But don’t worry — the Sedona won’t lose any of its functionality. This minivan’s V6 engine can now be mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission. That’s good news for drivers. But the option of Slide-N-Stow seats or second-row “First Class” reclining lounge seats is good news for everyone.
Stinger GT Atlantica
Exclusive doesn’t even begin to describe this limited-edition sports car. Only 500 units of the 2019 Kia Stinger GT Atlantica will be produced. For those lucky enough to get their hands on one, a Surround View Monitor, wireless phone charger, and heated rear seats will always be at their fingertips. So will the original Stinger’s ferocious engine and sure-footed all-wheel drive system.
And the Kia Stinger GT Atlantica won’t just perform like a winner. With an Espresso Brown Nappa-leather-appointed cabin to complement a unique Chroma Blue metallic exterior, this high-performance sedan will look like a champion, too.
