The 2024 Kia K8 is not currently available in India, as Kia hasn’t announced plans to introduce this luxury sedan to the Indian market. Positioned above the K5 in Kia’s global lineup, it features a sleek design with a large tiger-nose grille and distinctive LED lighting.

While specific details for India are unavailable, the global version offers various powertrain options, including a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, and boasts premium interior materials and advanced technology.

If launched in India, the K8 might be priced between ₹40 lakh to ₹55 lakh (ex-showroom) to compete with models like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, this pricing is speculative, and actual figures would depend on various factors if Kia decides to bring the K8 to India in the future.
