The 2015 Kia K900 is available in Premium and Luxury trims. Standard features for the Premium trim include-  a 9.2-inch display screen, adaptive xenon headlights, a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, LED foglights, 19-inch alloy wheels, heated rear outboard seats, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, driver memory settings, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, an iPod/USB interface and satellite and HD radio, a power trunk lid, front and rearview cameras, front and rear parking sensors, UVO, Bluetooth, a navigation system, front and rearview cameras and a 14-speaker audio system with a CD player, full power accessories, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 8-way power front seats with driver four-way power lumbar, heated and ventilated front seats, a ski pass-through opening in the rear seats, a power rear sunshade, and automatic wipers.

The front and rear cabin is spacious, providing ample head/leg room for taller passengers and cargo space is very good measuring 15.9 cubic feet, which is somewhat average  for its class.

Driving kinetics of the K900 is quite impressive offering a genuinely delightful ride and the technology features are some of the best and most advanced that I have ever seen. The majority of bumps and uneven surfaces are absorbed, making sharp turns feels effortless, and acceleration is quick going from 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds.

One of the most prominent issues for some consumers may be the Kia emblem, but if that element is overlooked, the Kia K900 is truly a wonderful, luxurious sedan that looks and drives like an Audi A7, but with a lower price tag.

The new 2015 Kia K900 is a serious competitor in the luxury vehicle segment with a sleek style, brilliant interior craftsmanship, technologically advanced features, and solid on the road performance with a starting MSRP of $54,500.  Kia is truly changing perceptions of luxury and the K900 is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a full-sized luxury vehicle that is like no other.
