2015 Kia K900 Release and Review
2015 Kia K900 Release and Review. – Unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles auto show, the Korean automaker says the Kia K900 2015 is poised to challenge the full-size rear-drive luxury sedan segment. Size-wise the K900, leapfrogs the Hyundai Genesis sedan to share its 119.9-inch wheelbase with the larger Equus.
Meet the 2015 KIA K900 Luxury Sedan, the new flagship from the Korean automaker that has it sight aim squarely at the luxury sedan segment and it is rear wheel driven. rear wheel drive is hardly a forte of Korean automakers and the same goes to luxury. i, for one, never view any Korean ride as luxury, sporty yes, but never luxury and with respect to a car, to me, a real car is marked by left-hand drive and rear-wheel driven, and i guess i could say we finally see a real car coming from KIA. aesthetically, the K900 is a pretty handsome and has a somewhat Jaguar-ish front end and a Lexus-cross-Beemer rear end, and a very BMW-isque silhouette.
As we have told you, what separates Kia sedans from other manufacturers is that each of them offers something completely different. That fact will remain true when the new rear-drive K900 hits the market next year. While the exact 2015 Kia K900 release date has not been announced yet, the manufacturer expects the newest member to the Kia family to be made available during the first quarter of 2014.
