Let’s not mince words: Kia isn’t a luxury brand (at least not yet – more on that in a second). The company has largely experienced success amongst amongst a younger generation that seek a practical, yet fairly well equipped car. So what business do they have entering the luxury market? Arguably, none. But that’s exactly who they’re targeting with the K900.
So all in, with a fully loaded 2015 Kia K900 – this includes reclining back seats, a V8 engine that kicks out 420hp and all the other bells and whistles you could probably think of – costs $65,000. That’s a far cry from a comparably equipped BMW and Audi (the A8 and 7-series to be more specific). So you see, the K900 is the bargain choice, and while it won’t attract a large audience, proves that the “budget” car company (one that has showed tremendous growth and a brand recovery of sorts) can produce a vehicle that can share a garage with its German counterparts.
Sure, it lacks the prestige and handling of its German counterparts. But for the average driver, one that seeks a roomy sedan with just about every feature, and for a price below $70,000, will that matter?
So hit the video above and checkout Kia’s all new 2015 K900.
Excellent powertrain, a great value buy considering the features, room and more room
A fair bit of body roll in the corner or during sudden maneuvers, blind spot monitoring is too sensitive during lane changes and produces false positives
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
