Are You Ready for $60,000 Kia? It's Called K900.



Yes, it is finally here and the wait is over.  The 2015 Kia K900 is the first full size luxury vehicle to enter the U.S. market.

It is available with a boatload of standard features and a list of super luxury option all available under $70,000 fully equipped.  The incredibly smooth engine rated at 420-horsepower V-8 is more powerful than what you'd get in the Lexus LS460.

There's also a modern, eight-speed automatic transmission, three drive modes, 19-inch wheels, soft, Nappa leather seat trim, three-zone, automatic climate control, navigation system and a 900-watt Lexicon Logic 7 surround sound audio with 17 speakers.


There are front and rear camera, parking sensors, panorama sunroof and even power opening and closing trunk that made to its standard equipment list.  The K900 should qualify as semi-limousine for its size and luxury features for its rear passengers.  The car is in fact almost 17-foot long!

The buyers in the luxury car segment are used to paying a huge sum of money for optional premium packages to really enjoy all that high-end features.  With K900, you even get heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, power rear window sunshade, rain-sensing wipers, light-emitting diode (LED) headlights and fog lights, lane departure warning system, blind spot detection system, rear cross traffic alert and eight air bags, all included in it's base price of $60,400.

By comparison, Lexus LS 460 with significantly underpowered (368-horsepower) V-8 starts at $73,065, and it will easily top $90,000 by the time you add all the features to match up to K900's standard equipment.  That will make the price gap of nearly $30,000.  Opt for the German luxury, you will see even bigger price gap.

Another shocker is Kia's warranty; 10 years/100,000 miles on the powertrain and five years/60,000 miles limited vehicle coverage.

So the question is, are you will to give Kia a chance without any history of reliability and reputation?
