Kia will unveil its all-new saloon, likely to go on sale in the UK in 2011, at the New York Auto Show in April.

Kia will bring the new saloon, currently known as the Kia Magentis, to market with new styling to bring it into line with other models in the Kia family.

The new Magentis is longer, wider and lower than outgoing models, displaying the current vogue for coupe styling on modern saloons with a low profile.

Kia says it will confirm a launch date and a name for the new model closer to launch in 2011.

The Korean manufacturer has enjoyed success over 2009 and 2010, with strong sales due to government scrappage schemes and new models such as the Sportage, Venga and new Kia Soul.
