2015 Kia K900

When this luxury sedan was introduced few years ago, it was huge surprise. Although everyone was aware in that time that Korean automakers aren’t making cheap small compacts anymore, but compact and mid-size models that are competitive in their segments, no one expected to see a full-size luxury sedan which is on the same level as, for example, BMW 7-series. On the other side, one thing stayed unchanged about Korean cars. They are still much cheaper than European and U.S. competition, so you can buy 2015 Kia K900 for the price of much smaller BMW 5 Series, which is amazing.

This model shares many similarities with its relative called Hyundai Equus. The 2015 Kia K900 uses not only the same platform as Equus, but also shares many other technical solutions. On the other side, the look is pretty much different. Like every luxury car, 2015 K900 tries to balance between conservative elements, but when you see front fascia you will have no doubt that it is a Kia. It features company’s signature “tiger nose” grille and recognizable headlights. It features 19-inch wheels, while rear end is characterized by dual exhaust outlets and LED taillights. All lights on this vehicle are LED. The interior of this luxury sedan is just amazing. It looks very stylish, just like S-class or something like that. Everything in the cabin is covered with leather or soft plastic, except wood steering wheel. The 2015 K900 is also full of latest technology features. For example, it is equipped with 12.3 inches LCD screen that replaces all of the vehicle’s typical analog gauges.
