Default Kia Luxury Flagship Will be Called Quoris



Kia has confirmed that when its rear-drive luxury sedan is exported, it will be called the Quoris.

The name originates from the combination of the words quality, and core, meant to hint at the main attributes of the vehicle.

Kia released two videos today that detail a contest held by the company where two fans were brought to South Korea to be the first to drive the new car, and it was in these videos that the name was revealed. While not officially confirmed for the U.S., the Quoris is almost a sure thing for our market.

In its home market of South Korea, the car is called the K9, and is already on sale with two engine options; a 3.3-liter V6 delivering 296HP and a 3.8-liter V6 producing 329 hp. Other features on the luxury sedan include advanced smart cruise control, blind-spot detection, lane departure warning, 360-degree around view monitoring and advanced vehicle safety management.

It was previously thought that the car would be called the Cadenza, but Kia wants the car to stand out, and is hoping the name Quoris will help it do so. ”Our decision to give this striking new sedan an unconventional name means it will stand out even further from the established crowd,” said Thomas Oh, Kia’s executive VP & COO of the international business division.

I like the name, Quoris. It's a really unique and uncommon name that is really catchy. Ever since hearing it I could never get that name out of my head!
