Kia claims that the second-generation K900 has been so radically redesigned that it's hardly the same car except for its name. While this is debatable, there is no reason to believe that the K900 is better than ever.
Kia's full-size luxury barge has a new exterior. The headlights have two-stage LED running lights that are reminiscent of the tail lights of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Both the grille and the lower air dam are impressively wide and the side has no sharp angles that do not scream "luxury". It's a bit longer and wider than before.
The inside emphasizes the width, with long horizontal lines on the dashboard and a piece of plaster that is almost level with the ground. Damn, even the trim in the steering wheel is a bit like the lower part of the front bumper. All lines on the door panels direct the view back to the dashboard. Buyers have the choice of several suitable wood veneers, and what is not covered with wood or metal (or plastic) is wrapped in leather. Traditionally, there are a lot of physical switchgear for controlling infotainment and climate control. Speaking of Infotainment: All K900 get a 1
If there is one thing that Kia knows best, it's like stuffing a car full of standard equipment than its competitors. The K900's standard kit includes a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, electric rear seats, a 17-speaker audio system and a new 64-color mood lighting system. Optional features include HVAC controls for the rear seats, heated and ventilated rear seats, adaptive dampers, the previously mentioned HUD and a 20-way adjustable driver's seat.
Hey, I'm not even on the engine. Under the hood is a 3.3-liter, twin-turbo V6 that outputs 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. It comes to an eight-speed automatic and standard four-wheel drive.
The 2019 Kia K900 will be available in the US in the fourth quarter of 2018, and prices will be announced closer to the sale date.
