When you think of a luxury sports sedan, you may think that brand history is an important factor. However the open-minded will take a second look at the 2015 Kia K900; this is a premium car that will change your opinion of KIA.

Model — 2015 KIA K900
MPG — 15 City / 23 Hwy
Engine — 5L V8, 420hp. with an 8-speed transmission for quick shifting and response.
Price — Starts at $60,000. We test-drove the VIP version that adds a 12.3″ media screen, rear reclining seats and more for $65,500.

The V8 VIP package comes in $20,000 less than its competitors and includes a 3-year complimentary scheduled maintenance package.

The all-new KIA K900 offers a premium driving experience, a modern design that’s distinctive and timeless and a rear-drive platform. The long wheel base sedan is built with ultra-high strength steel and offers a luxury ride that’s both comfortable and has good balance. The K900 rides on 19″ wheels with a multi-link suspension and large brakes and offers confident handling.

The interior was very quiet and blocked out wind noise, so passengers could enjoy the technology and sound system. Some of the unique technologies include16-element headlights that mimic natural sunlight and self-adjusting quad beam full LED lighting. Inside, the multi-media screen is easy to use and offers UVO eServices. The remarkable Lexicon sound system has 900 watts and is perfectly balanced.

Safety features include a lane departure warning system, smart cruise control, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, surround view monitor, parking guide system and a color heads up display that allows you to adjust the information.

Inside, the K900 was all luxury; it boasts a modern, sophisticated design with a warm, inviting ambiance. Notable features include Premium Napa leather with natural wood accents, 16 way adjustable seating, full length sunroof, Tri-Zone climate control, rear seating with privacy sun shades, controls on the center rear arm rest and reclining rear seats, and heated and cooled seats.
