The Kia K900 is a brand-new vehicle for 2015. It is the first pure luxury car to be sold by Kia and represents the brand's attempt to push up-market. The K900 represents a breakthrough for a company that was not long ago defined entirely by their inexpensive economy cars.
Copious interior space; strong performance; opulent interior features
The K900 competes with other full sized luxury cars from manufacturers like BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Infiniti and Audi. With plenty of space, a big V8 engine and rear wheel drive, the K900 follows the same basic format that luxury cars have been using for decades. However, the K900 brings several of Kia's classic traits to bear on the segment, including a 100,000 mile warranty, top notch reliability and clean, fresh styling. With a starting price of just under $60,000, Kia is serious about getting into the luxury car game.
