We already know what Kia's new flagship sedan will look like, but the automaker has finally released a handful of images showing the car in its Quoris-specific guise. While Kia still hasn't said when the 2013 Quoris will be available here in the U.S., these new shots of the car have us eagerly anticipating the car's arrival.

One new aspect of the Kia Quoris that we haven't seen before is the heads-up display screen. It's not clear what the availability of the HUD will be on the Quoris, but it is a feature that will help set it apart in a crowded luxury sedan market. From the picture, we can see that the full-color HUD screen will display information for the adaptive cruise control, navigation and vehicle speed, and we'd imagine there's more.

This latest round of images also gives us a better idea of what the interior will look like in a more natural light, as opposed to stylized images of the Kia K9 we've seen before, and they show the cabin in a different color combination. Outside the car, we still see full LED headlights and we also get a look at a new set of stylish, multi-spoke wheels with painted inserts.

      Kia should go and give Honda some pointers on interiors, since it's obvious they must've bumped their heads and developed a serious case of amnesia.

      Very attractive, but the steering wheel...eh.

      Needs more buttons.

      Looks a little busy to me with all the buttons, but otherwise nicely styled. If you had told me 5 years ago Kia would be building something with this interior I would have laughed.

      Apart from the BMW style shifter and other BMW derived bits, all that plastic trim looks so cheap. I feel like if you left the car in the sun for a while they would all melt.

      From the double kidney esque grill to the shift knob to the iDrive esque knob and screen, to the Bavarian looking dash, etc. THIS IS ONE BIG BMW KNOCKOFF. That isn't to say that I don't like it...because I do but thats probably because I'm a fan of bimmers

      Everything looks very BMW-ish to me... And the exterior isn't as good as the Optima's in my opinion. But my god the rear leg room looks epic.

      The shift knob kinda reminds me of what current BMWs have and it's probably my least favorite interior part in my X3. And seat adjustment control location is placed where I would not have expected. And I am not digging the pseudo aluminum center console. But somehow it seems to work overall. Great job.

        It was a dumb idea when BMW introduced that shifter. It's even dumber that Kia copied it.

      The first photos looked more BMWish. These seem to have more personality. Some things could be improved. That grey plastic around the shifter and the MM controls looks cheap. It's a bit too large for aluminium or wood but perhaps in the same colour as the dashboard it would look better. Still, all in all a pretty good job.

      The poor mans BMW or the intelligent/value minded mans BMW? Selling KIA's for only the past 4 years I have seen KIA go from a brand that middle class adults replace their Camrys/Accords/Malibus or upper middle class folks are buying for their 16 year old kids to a brand that upper middle class/upper class folks are trading their Lexus/BMW's and especially Infinitys in for. This is with the top of the line vehicle being the Optima SXL (which if you havent seen yourself, the Napa leather makes the leather fromthe previously mentioned brands look like dish towels!) which dominates with dependibility, efficiency and of course the stunning good looks endowed by the talented Mr.Schreyer. Im in a more affluent toen in St.Louis and thesde folks arent embarrassed to be seen driving a vehicle with the KIA monniker on the hood any longer. I can only imagine the droves of customers that will partonize my brand happily when the Cadenza then the flagship Quoris finally arrives. Watchout Germans/Japanese we have a 100k mile warranty , value and good looks that cannot be ignored!

        Exactly what I came here to say. I don't understand how they can make the rest of the interior nice and then they make the steering wheel so ugly.

      Wow, this interior screams F10/F30 BMW knockoff. Even that guage cluster looks ripped right out of a new BMW.

        What are you talking about? BMWs have plastic seats. This one has leather seats.

        It looks NOOOOTTTHIIINNNGGG like the BMW's interior. http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/Vehicles/2013/5/535iSedan/5SeriesSedanMediaGallery.aspx Go there now, look at the gauge cluster, it looks nothing like it other than the fact it has ROUND gauges. Neither does the rest of the interior. If you are going to troll, at least try and do a good job.

          You're right it's nothing like a BMW interior because if I were BMW, I'd be appalled if this is what I looked like inside.
