Kia Ready to Shake Up Luxury Car Market with K900 (K9)



Kia K900 is confirmed for US dealership with estimated price range of $50,000 to $70,000.  Kia officials are saying "a BMW 7-Series value for a 5-series price", which also means Mercedes S Class value for E Class price.

K900 is expected to hit US dealerships sometime early 2014 with the promotion starting just in time with Super Bowl game in January 2014.

Kia's first-ever rwd production sedan to be sold in the U.S. market, is the same vehicle sold as the K9 in South Korea and as the Quoris in other overseas markets. It will come with advanced safety technologies, luxury features and up to 420 hp, in a package similar in size to a BMW 7 series, according to dealers who attended Kia's national dealer meeting in Las Vegas.

K900's engine lineup will include V-6 and V-8 engines, with the V-8 producing 420 hp. The K900's V-6 will likely be the 290 hp, 3.8-liter mill used in the version sold in South Korea. With 420 hp, the V-8 should be the 5.0-liter V-8 from Hyundai-Kia's Tau engine family. The eight-speed automatic transmission used in overseas models is also expected for the K900.

Other features of the model sold overseas and expected to be on the K900 include adaptive LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, a 17-speaker premium audio system and a head-up display that displays cruising speed, turn-by-turn directions and other information.

It's great to have more choices for the buyers in the full size luxury sedan market, but we will have to wait and see if anyone is willing to spend over $50,000 Kia branded car.
