Kia Motors America (KMA) unveiled the next-generation of flagship sedans---K900---at the 2018 New York International Auto Show at the end of last month.
The completely redesigned Kia K900 sedan made its global debut at the New York Auto Show, which was held on the 28th of March, bringing a new definition of premium luxury to the Kia portfolio.
Establishing a wide array of world-class amenities that befit an upscale flagship sedan, the all-new second-generation model touts sophisticated materials, stately exterior design, and high-tech features.
Offering superb ride quality and confident comfort, K900 makes it the most technologically advanced Kia ever.
“The all-new 2019 K900 is much more than a generational redesign, as it takes on a whole new look, feel, and character over its predecessor. Only its name – K900 – is carried over,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, Product Planning, KMA. “Our designers and engineers have done an extraordinary job of reimagining the K900 to fully meet the needs and desires of consumers shopping in the luxury sedan segment with the promise of a tremendous value proposition that only Kia can deliver. The all-new K900 is a push into new territory and serves as further evidence this brand is moving in a forward direction.”
Based conceptually on the ever changing shape of condensed energy, a new ‘quadric pattern’ signature grille is the focal point of the K900. There are 176 jewel-like cells within the grille, and natural flowing lines emanate from the frontal area. The rear of the K900 also shows off a wide stance decorated with eye-catching details. The duplex rear combination lights reverberate the design language of the headlights with the integrated exhaust housings finished off with chrome.
Apart from the exterior stuff, what else? Technological features are up. As expected, the all-new K900 comes equipped with a wide array of advanced technology, connectivity, and infotainment features. This tech-savvy flagship K900’s Surround View Monitor utilizes four cameras providing a 360-degree perspective with stitched images that provide a seamless view. A Blind Spot View Monitor provides the driver with a live video feed of adjacent lanes in the instrument cluster and is activated via the turn signal. What’s even more amazing is that the K900 brings Lane Keep Assist System, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, and Driver Attention Warning, the latter of which is designed to advise the driver to stop the vehicle and get rest if it detects drowsiness or fatigue while monitoring driving behavior and patterns.
Outputting 365 horse power and 376 pound-feet of torque, this world-class engine---the K900---, which has evolved into a truly sophisticated driving machine powered by a 3.3-liter twin turbo V6, was recently named to Ward’s 10 Best Engines list for its exceptional responsiveness and refinement. The K900 becomes the second application of this in-house built system and elevates traction and handling to help the K900 compete against its premium European competitors.
Overall, the K900 is equal parts prestige, power, and presence, embodying an appearance reminiscent of a finely tailored suit over an athlete’s well-proportioned physique. The new K900 is slated to go on sale in the U.S. during the fourth quarter of 2018. Pricing will be announced closer to the K900’s on-sale date.
