2015 Kia K900
2015 Kia K900

New for 2015

The Kia K900 is an all new model for the 2015 model year.

Vehicle Overview

The Kia K900 is a rear-wheel drive flagship sedan that sits above the Cadenza in the automaker’s lineup.

Summary

The 2015 Kia K900 is a rear-drive sedan that comes with an eight-speed automatic and a V-8 power. For now, the standard engine is a 420-hp 5.0-liter V-8 makes 376 lb-ft of torque, and is EPA-rated at 15/23 mpg. A lower-priced and more efficient V-6 model with a 311-hp 3.8-liter V-6 is expected to arrive for the 2016 model year.
The 2015 K900 has the kind of rear-seat space that the more expensive competition might only offer on long-wheelbase models, as well as plenty of options to keep rear-seat passengers happy, such as HVAC controls, power-operated outboard seats, heated and cooled seats, and plush carpets. The interior is wrapped in an exterior design that's conservative, but looks sufficiently premium.
Some noteworthy K900 features include a full-color head-up display (a first for Kia), blind spot and lane departure warning systems, a 900-watt Lexicon audio system, rear cross traffic alert (another first for Kia), adaptive cruise control, and an advanced vehicle safety management system (also a first for Kia) that can alert the driver to danger, pre-pressurize the braking system, and pre-tension the seatbelts. The 2015 Kia K900 has not been tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS.

What We Think

Twenty years ago Kia entered the U.S. market, and even five years ago we would have doubted the automaker could produce a credible full-size luxury car. Kia has boldly taken a step, alongside Hyundai with its Genesis and Equus sedans, into the premium sedan segment.
One editor said, “Every relevant creature comfort and safety feature we can think of is included in this harbinger of Kia’s future.” The chassis is rigid and feels solid, while the direct-injection V-8 is eager to shift smoothly through all eight gears in the transmission. The K900 is more of a luxury cruiser than a corner-hustling sedan, but it is equally comfortable in either role. The interior is decked out in Nappa leather, and things like the beautiful analog clock speak to the attention that has been paid to the small details. The ride is isolated and smooth, as one editor noted in a review of a 2015 K900 VIP, “this is pampered motoring”.
For buyers not seduced by famous badges, the 2015 Kia K900 is a compelling entry -- and an impressive first step.

High-Performance 2015 Kia K900 Teased Before SEMA
Kia has proven with the 2015 Kia K900 that it is fully capable of executing a luxurious premium sedan. But visitors to the 2014 SEMA show want to see a brasher, wilder, less buttoned-down character, so Kia will shoot the executive cruiser full of adrenaline with the High-Performance K900.

2015 Kia K900 V8 VIP: Around The Block
With more than a few pundits and onlookers rolling their eyes, the premium-luxury-sedan fray -- the elevated domain of such icons as Audi, BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz -- now includes Kia. Yes, that Kia, the same South Korean automaker whose U.S. showrooms hawk $14K Rio econoboxes and $15K Soul crossovers. But walk right in and, there on the same floor, its adaptive LED headlights irradiating the steel wheels of a nearby base Forte, can now be found the 2015 Kia K900 V8 VIP -- a high-tech, Nappa-leathered, four-door flagship more than quadruple the entry price of a Soul.

Santa Barbara, California--The sleek center fielder Curtis Granderson added power hitting to his game in mid-career, the Clash started as punks but attained some elegance and sophistication, and, of course, Thomas Edison groomed his filament to perfection. Welcome now the 2015 Kia K900. Entering the American market twenty years ago, Kia was reviled for its crude cars, and earned customers who were eagerly sought by payday loan companies.
