• Rendering of the Kia VG-Sedan released

The VG is in and the Amanti is out. That’s the word coming out of Kia Motors where the company recently released images of its brand-new VG-Sedan, a highly sophisticated top-end vehicle that is set to roll out on U.S. soil in the not-so-distant future. The VG-Sedan’s entry in American means that its predecessor, the Kia Amanti, is on its way out of Kia dealerships in Korea, Europe and North America.

First introduced at the Seoul Motor Show – where else – the VG Sedan drew a lot of attention because of its rather, upscale look, something Kia isn’t necessarily known for. In any event, Kia is putting their eggs on the new VG-Sedan, which is expected to be based on the Hyundai Azera platform that comes with a 3.5 Liter V6 Lambda engine making upwards of 250 HP, with the hopes that it can hold its own against its more established domestic rivals like the Buick LaCrosse and the Ford Taurus.

Based on what we’ve seen and heard so far, it seems like Kia is pretty confident with the VG-Sedan package and how it can compete with the rest of the field and give them a run for their money. The only question is: how will the new car translate to the tastes of American consumers?

Only time will tell.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
