    CORRECTION! The K900 is only offered this year with a turbocharged V6, with no V8 option. Big thanks to C&D and Motor Trend for getting this wrong. Last time I rely on them for info!

      The V6 also has 365 horsepower. The last generation had 311.

      Doug, I like your presentations, but I think you were kind of out of line on your pin. Don't blame Car and Driver and Motor Trend. Blame yourself. You were right there at the Kia dealership. You were going to present something to the world, it was completely on you to verify your facts. Car and Driver and Motor Trend will take their own lumps for their own mistakes. You take your lumps for yours. It was your mistake. Yours. Also, you take authority away from yourself by begging at the feet of car magazines for data on new cars. Brother, make a few calls, talk to the dealership people. Look at the online configurators. Being sloppy is one thing, but then doubling down and trying to blame others made it worse. Seriously.

      Booooo, V6 is my least favorite engine! No matter how powerful, how fast, they sound terrible!

    Kia needs to come out with a separate brand name for its luxury cars like
    Acura, Genesis, and Lexus

    Hi. These are examples (Lexus is in this too) It's best when creating a company that's got a formidable competition (Henry Ford and Ford is different, it didn't have any big competitors, it was the disruptor), it's best to start and position yourself as the most high-end as possible. It's easier to position a series lower, than come up and be seen as high-end.
    For almost the same amount, people would just get the naturally, luxury brands. Kia and VW (Phaeton) can make this successful if it's 1/3 the price, perhaps.

    Doug I believe u were a little ridiculously granular and a bit critical. This is a tremendous machine with a ton of features. You are kinda over analyzing stuff and a somewhat hypocritical

    The lock control in the back seat is so you can have the armrest down and not change settings accidentally.

    If I win the lottery, I will buy a K900 for confort and a Stinger GT for sportiness. I don't think you need anything more than these 2 cars!

    How does it look at night? The signal cameras.

  • nazirdjon
    nazirdjon 13 days ago

    That blind spot camera is not practical. When changing lanes very often you have like 2-3 seconds to take quick glance at your mirror. You won't have enough time to manage all three views. In a stressful time this 3 point of view will only doyble your workload

    Very, very similar to Genesis G90 for $15,000 less. Silly to go Genesis if you want Kia/Hyundai luxury

    • Spike64
      Spike64 22 days ago

      Doug doesn't realize that Maurice Lacroix is a maker of luxury Swiss timepieces which makes the clock perfectly appropriate in a luxury car.

    Apparently no one at KIA had heard about another South-Korean car company called HYUNDAI. Because if they did, and after what has happened to the Equus and Genesis line, they would not have bothered with this crazy model. Let me see now -- USD $65,000 -- for a KOREAN sedan that comes with a 6-yilnder powerplant and one that nobody has even heard about? Yeah, right.... I take three of these, please.

    Analog clock next to “futuristic” gauge cluster with a goodbye chime is just plain tacky. But then it’s an Asian car...

  • Emīls Oto Ģipters

    Is it just me or it’s looks like Nercedes, outside is reaaly similar to Mercedes, interior looks realy similar to Mercedes, they just change something so it dosen’t look like 1 to 1 Mercedes!

    Reason why it's unknown is because nobody wants a Kia... You can't just make shit cars for eternity, and suddenly expect people to start being interested in your more expensive models. Even though, modern Kias are actually very decent. It's the stigma. It won't just go away. I have to say though - turn signal blind spot cameras is a million dollar idea.

    Mercedez wood interior is also fake. I have driven an S class and I was not impressed by its quality materials honestly. For an100 thousand dollars car I was expecting better materials. I think KIA did a great job with this car for $65,000.

    The exterior is rather boring; however, the interior is so gorgeous. The matte wood trim looks very nice - it reminds me of the wood used in Land Rover vehicles.

    Lock button seems kind of obvious for me, it's just to make sure that you don't change anything by mistake if you're a passenger there just by moving your hand or placing it on buttons.
