    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!

      Hey Doug Demuro, I'm glad you reviewed this true underdog luxury car, but it has more output than was stated in the video. Great review always a great car show. www.kiamedia.com/us/en/models/k900/2019/specifications#k900

      In addition, that engine is the exact same one found in the Stinger GT, including the 365 hp
      I heard that the 0 to 60 time of this car was somewhere around the mid to low 5 second range

      DD -Your credibility has taken a severe shellacking due to your bogus engine choice info, and blaming it on the car mags didn't help your case any. There have been numerous other USclip reviews of the 2019 K900 going back to last March, and they all got the engine right. Maybe you should watch Alex on Autos before you post any more vids on cars. And tell the truth - are you Jay Leno's love child? Same lantern jaw, and same vocal inflections.

    The convex/concave indicators on the paddle-shifters, are on other cars too. I would have thought Doug would know this. It's in my 2018 E-Class Cabriolet. But what's not in my car is that awesome blind-spot feature! Now that's something I'd like in a car! This Kia is very nice!

    i think it should've get the 9-10/10 on features, there's everything + more than in some mercedes or so... you said it yourself, wireless charging, extra configurable screen and so on... everything that it doesnt have is far more superior that what you'd get in any car that price range (aiming here at rollce royce and so on)

    Brand cache is a notion that is going out the window. Firstly , BMW, Merc, Audi, Lexus are so common they are no longer exclusive. Most importantly, brands like KIA, Hyundai, Mazda, Honda, Toyota etc are so much more premium than days past that the gap between these cars and the traditional premium brands has closed dramatically.

    Hate how he talks down about Kia. I have one and love it. I'd buy this for sure! BMW and Mercedes are money pits anyways. Visit Scotty Kilmer 's channel. He'll tell you all about the mechanical issues those things have. This is like a new dream car for me! Kia wasn't great years ago, but now they're looking great and becoming a little more popular.

    Looks like a cool car, but I cant see myself spending 50k+ on a damn Kia, the name alone will make it depreciate faster than I could make payments. Nope nope nope.

    On the other hand, GM had a $50k 400+ HP sedan that would have been a great competitor to this, until they decided that Holden needed the chopping block. Fucking idiots. Ill never forgive GM for killing Pontiac, and now Holden. Bring back the SS!

    Tbh idk why Kia is selling the K900 here in the us. It’s designed for the Korean market where businessmen and important ppl tend to buy domestic luxury cars. That’s changing a bit tho cuz the younger generations r buying more imports, but a lot of the older brainwashed generation still like to buy these. The K900 and the Genesis G90 are kinda like the Toyota Century of Korea.

    In my opinion the tech in cars is cool and all but that's why we are having more crashes and smashes these days because people rely on technology if you seriously need a little camera to tell you when to change lanes you shouldn't even be driving thats the same with automatic park assist dont Get me wrong it's cool but if you cant park you need to go back to driving school

    @Doug DeMuro, FYI, Maurice Lacroix is a premium brand of Swiss watches. Maurice Lacroix experienced a "rocket-like ascent" with the launch of their high end "Les Mécaniques" line, later renamed the "Masterpiece" line. During this time, the company elevated itself to the high ranks of Swiss watch manufactures, by both maintaining traditional 'Swiss watch-making art' and by creating their own movements for its Masterpiece Collection.

    Pretty sad commentary on Cadillac when Kia is building better Cadillacs than Cadillac IMO. And this coming from somebody who likes Cadillacs and has owned 3 of them in the past.
    Also I think the Genesis G90 is a more handsome design, plus you can get it with the V8 for a similar price. Once again Koreans are making better Cadillacs than Cadillac.

    The reason they don't sell many of these is because part of the experience of owning a luxury car is the dealership experience. Nobody wants to drop that kind of cash on a car and sit in the same shitty lobby as the guy who paid $12k for his Kia Rio.

    Doug: at 19:05 to 19:50 when you complained that the K900 handled like a luxury car and "not like a high performance sports car" what mode were you in -- eco, normal, comfort, or sport? Can we assume you were in Sport mode?
    Also, I trust that you mis-spoke when you compared it to "a high performance sports car" when you should have been comparing it to a "luxury sports sedan". KIA seems to be positioning the K900 to compete with cars such as the BMW 5 series, not the Corvette or a McLaren.
