Here's Our First Look At The All-New Kia K900 Luxury Flagship Sedan


It even has a Swiss-developed analog clock. Slick.

Set for its official live debut next week at the New York Auto Show, the first official photos of the all-new Kia K900 luxury flagship sedan have been released by the automaker. We’ve already seen a couple of teasers and spy shots, one of which is a drawing of the fancy schmancy interior, but we’ll reserve final judgement until we get a look at the new K900 in the flesh in the Big Apple. But based on this pair of exterior shots, it's so far, so good. Kia says its designers were inspired by the ‘Gravity of Prestige’ design concept with its rich details and solid surfaces.

Take note of what Kia describes as the new ‘Quadric pattern’ signature grille, shown for the first time here. Apparently, the grille contains 176 jewel-like ‘cells’, “suggestive of released energy accelerating away from its center.” The front LED headlights feature what’s described as a “Duplex” look. There’s also a chrome strip running along the base of the front and rear doors and around the lower rear section. And because its rear-wheel drive platform allows for it, the K900 benefits from shorter front and rear overhangs. Official images of the new interior have yet to be released, but Kia describes the layout as “minimalist…with a refined and luxurious cabin which wraps around the driver.”

Along with high-quality materials like wood and metal veneers, there’s also an analog clock developed specifically for the car by Swiss luxury watch brand Maurice Lacroix. More modern interior technologies include an integrated 12.3-inch HMI screen with a bezel-less display. It can also be controlled manually by the driver via a dial located on the center console. Full details and plenty more official images are expected in the coming days, and Kia has already announced all-new K900 sales will get underway globally this summer.
