More specifically, it revealed the Korean-market K7, which is basically the exact same car we get here with a different nameplate on it.

The new Cadenza-K7’s front end is dominated by a larger, concave chrome grille, flanked by thinner, sleeker headlights; while out back the taillights now reach across the full width of the car, joined by a sort of dashed-line bar that will make for one interesting light signature.

The interior sees updates in the form of a new 12.3-inch touchscreen and re-positioned venting; the gear shift lever and button layout below the center stack has been refreshed as well. A digital gauge cluster lends the car a more premium feel than its predecessor.

Available drivetrains are a mystery for now, since North American and Korean engine offerings aren’t always the same.
