Making its debut into the world market at the 2018 New York auto show, the 2019 Kia K900 is the perfect picture of a luxury automobile. Coming in as a second generation car in the K900 line which was started with the 2015 model year, this luxury sedan though less powerful than its predecessor, has unique design cues and dimensions.
When compared to its predecessor, the 2019 Kia K900 is notably longer and has some distinctive design cues which set it apart. The tiger-nose grill featured on the front portrays a wonderful ripple effect with the aid of its 176 jewel-like cells. It also comes with standard 19-inch alloy wheels that are finished in chrome, same as the grille, windows, and exhaust pipe. The exterior design also features an active air flap, full underbody panels, and wheel air curtains that work in synergy to give the car a 0.27 drag coefficient.
While the exterior features may not portray the sportiness or luxury some customers may want in their ride, ultimate luxury lies in the car interior. There are multiple options for leather upholstery and open-pore matte wood trim to choose from, as well as heated and ventilated front and back seats. The interior mood lighting system is nothing short of spectacular and is inspired by different aspects of nature such as skies, forests, auroras, and oceans. Finally, the car comes with an infotainment to die for. It consists of a 12.3-inch touchscreen paired with a 9.7 head up display; it comes along with the powerful 900-watt 17-speaker Lexicon/Harman Kardon audio system.
The K900 also features multiple safety and driver assistance features in its fold. These include automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, and forward collision warning. Kia also offers automated steering, driver attention warning, safe exit assist, and a 360-degree camera system on the 2019 sedan.
The 2019 Kia K900 is big on technology. Its infotainment system comes standard with navigation enabled for maneuvering the most unfamiliar streets you will encounter. Additionally, it comes with the UVO Luxe app that allows owners to locate their automobile from a smartphone, adjust temperatures, and remotely start the car’s engine. Also worth noting is the electronically controlled transmission system that helps eliminate the car’s wheel load variations and chassis movement.
When it comes to power the 2019 Kia K900 is a little bit less powerful than its predecessor which featured a 420-Horsepower 5-liter V-8 engine and rear wheel drive. This current model features an impressive 365 hp 3.3-liter twin turbo V-6 engine, 8-speed auto transmission, and four-wheel drive capability. The car claims to reach top speeds of up to 149mph and an acceleration of 0-60mph in just six seconds.
