It's incredible how much is standard, such as 365 hp.
If you’re in the market for a big luxury sedan but don’t feel like paying Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz money, then you’re likely not alone. And fortunately, Kia has an alternative solution many will find quiet appealing. The Kia K900 is back for the 2019 model year completely redesigned inside and out. It also rides on the same rear-wheel-drive platform that underpins the hot Stinger GT. But the K900 appeals to a different type of buyer, one who seeking a large and comfortable cruiser with ample power. How much will this cost you?
Kia has announced 2019 K900 pricing will begin at $60,895, which is still less than one of its closest rivals, the 2019 Acura RLX, which starts from $62,895.
However, the new K900 is quite a bit more money than its predecessor. The outgoing 2017 K900 began at $50,850. But the new K900, based on our own time driving it in its home market of South Korea last April, is a wonderful leap forward from the 2017 model. For example, instead of the previous rear-wheel-drive system, the new model is equipped standard with a rear-biased all-wheel drive system, thus making it a more attractive vehicle for buyers living in regions with harsh winters. The sole engine available is the same twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 found in the Stinger. In this application it produces 365 hp whereas the old K900’s V6 offered up 311 ponies. No V8 will be offered, but we also don’t think it’s necessary. The sole gearbox will be an eight-speed automatic.
The 2019 K900 comes equipped with an impressive list of standard features, among them Nappa leather seats, heated rear seats, 64-color interior ambient lighting, 9.7-inch head-up display, and even a rear seat ski pass opening. There really aren’t that many optional features, aside from the VIP package which, for another $4,000, gives you, among other items, ventilated rear seats, 12.3-inch full LCD instrument cluster, tri-zone climate control, and rear wireless phone charging. Sales of the 2019 Kia K900 are underway at dealerships across the country.
