When the first-generation KIA K900 came to the scene in 2013, it wasn’t expected to make a huge impact but it surprisingly did. Carrying a 3.3-liter V-6 engine the luxury utility vehicle was priced from $50,000 and recorded sales that were worth writing home about.
The second-generation 2019 K900 is a fresh combination of several things and more so technology that is attractively competitive.
Start off with the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, standard 12.3-inch tablet-like infotainment screen conveniently placed atop the dashboard and you will see a car that is not leaving anything to chance. The other good thing about this system is that this infotainment and even climate controls are greatly simplified for easier maneuverability
For driving safety, there is the Lane Follow Assist(similar to Volvo’s Pilot Assist) which, among other things is able to read lane markings and assist the car to remain centered in its lane. The fresh K900 is on the league of the Genesis G80 and G90. It is longer and wider, sensibly adding a little space for the driver and passenger spaces.
It will be available only with all-wheel drive in the United States with an eight-speed automatic. KIA has also recognized like its contemporary competitors that many of its target buyers look more into aesthetic capabilities such as ambiance than they care about performance.
With this in mind, the K900 has made the vehicle more quieter and the interior generally cool. But, you can still crack up the volume unto your favorite song playing on the 17-speaker Harman/Kardon stereo.
The target market for the K900 is continuously looking for alternatives that can offer a wide range of performances. The enhancement of the KIA K900 makes it gives the executive class yet another option.
