Updated versions of both the Kia K5 and Carnival will be introduced by the parent brand early this year.
In early September, Kia announced its global sales results. However, one extremely interesting “attached” piece of information to that edition is the car launch plans for the rest of 2023.
First, the mid-size sedan Kia K5 (formerly Optima) will be updated in mid-life later this year, almost 4 years after the launch of the current 5th generation. Following this, the Kia Carnival minivan line will also be refreshed, even though the new car will only be launched in June 2020.
As for the Kia K5, the car is rumored to have a significantly upgraded cabin with a dual curved screen like the newly launched Kia models. Meanwhile, the Kia Carnival could add a hybrid powertrain option, the aforementioned new screen, and a few other equipment options.
In the near future, the international version of the Kia EV5 will also be available after the car’s launch in China in late August.
In the first eight months of 2023, Kia had excellent results and global sales increased by 8.9% to 2,092,200 vehicles. Of the above, Korea contributed 354,275 units (up 7.8%), while 1,565,838 vehicles came from export markets (up 9%).
