KGP spy photographers caught new Kia VG Sedan out testing in the desert recently, it won’t be session out of the near-luxury segment for much longer.

Our newest shots disclose some more basics of the VG’s nicely nuanced shape, plus its interesting fencing, the elongated headlights, striking LED tail-light, and nicely integrated exhaust tips. The VG Sedan is projected to reach Kia showrooms sometime behind 2009 as a 2010 form.
