Koreans on the rise<br>KIAs everywhere
Korean rising star KIA has launched brand new models to take on the world, and they look pretty good on paper.
The Cadenza is aimed at the sport luxury market and is equipped with the most powerful V6 engine in KIA's production history, a 3.3 litre putting out almost 295 hp. Designed for Europe and the US, the sportiest, fastest KIA sedan yet might not make it to our shores in the Premium trim, but a downgraded version might come by, although chances of that happening are little.
On the SUV front, the brand new KIA Sorento is an alternative to the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Sportage is a big hit in Dhaka mainly because it's a well-equipped but cheap entry level SUV. Will its bigger brother fare better when the brand new Sorento reaches Bangladesh? We'll have to wait and see.
