2015 Kia K900 to Test Requirements of Luxury Sedan Status

Must a full-size luxury sedan wear a familiar luxury badge to be successful in the market? Kia intends to find out with the new 2015 K900, a big, rear-drive luxury car that's offered with a choice between a V-6 and a V-8 engine, and which offers numerous convenience, comfort, and technology features that are often reserved for models from BMW, Lexus, or Mercedes-Benz.

"Kia's rise over the last five years has been fueled by a willingness to challenge the status quo," said Michael Sprague, executive vice president, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America. "The K900 is the next logical progression for Kia. It demonstrates what Kia is capable of and will help redefine what the Kia brand stands for."

When the car goes on sale during the first quarter of 2014, it will offer a standard 3.8-liter V-6 engine making 311 horsepower and 293 lb.-ft. of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission with Eco, Normal, Sport, and Snow driving modes delivers the power to the K900 V6 model's rear wheels. The K900 V8 is equipped with that same transmission and drivetrain layout, but the engine is a 5.0-liter V-8 making 420 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. torque.

Each model is equipped with a long list of standard features. Selected highlights include genuine wood trim, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a power rear window sunshade, power-closing trunk lid, and front and rear park-assist sensors and cameras. A Driver Information System (DIS) with a center control knob and primary function buttons is designed to make it easier for the driver to use the standard 9.2-inch color touch-screen infotainment system, which includes navigation, UVO (Your Voice) eServices technology, and a 17-speaker premium audio system with HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth music streaming capability, and more.

Choose the K900 V8 model and the car adds a heated wood-and-leather steering wheel, extra wood trim for the cabin, a panoramic glass roof, adaptive LED headlights, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot detection, and a lane-departure warning system. This model also rides on larger 19-inch staggered-width wheels finished in chrome.

A Luxury package adds many of the K900 V8 model's standard features, plus premium leather seats. A Technology package installs 16-way power front seats, soft-close door latches, head-up display, and the K900 V8 model's safety technologies. An Advanced Smart Cruise Control system can bring the car to a complete stop and then accelerate when it is safe without the driver having to touch the brake pedal or accelerator, and an Advanced Vehicle Safety Management system with Pre-Safe Belt, pre-charged braking, and 3-stage collision warning features is included in this package.

The VIP package is reserved for the K900 V8. It adds elements of the K900 V6 model's Technology package plus reclining outboard rear seats with adjustable head restraints and power lumbar support, ventilated rear seats, a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster, and an AroundView Monitor System.

Pricing for the 2015 Kia K900 will be announced closer to the car's arrival in showrooms.
