2019 Kia K900
Kia Motors has revealed its all-new Kia K900 flagship luxury saloon. The result of a collaborative effort by Kia’s global design headquarters in Namyang, Korea and the brand’s U.S. design studio in Irvine, California, the K900 combines beautifully balanced design with elegant, organic lines and geometric details. First unveiled at the New York International Auto Show, the K900 demonstrates the breadth of capability of Kia Motors on a global scale.
Although there are no plans to bring the car to the UK, the K900 introduces a modern air of elegance and gravitas to the full-size premium sedan segment. Inspired by the effect of ripples flowing across the surface of a calm water, the ‘tiger-nose’ grille acts as the focal point, with 176 jewel-like ‘cells’ within the grille, suggestive of released energy accelerating away from its centre. Natural, flowing lines emanate from the grille, rise over the bonnet, sweep through to the rear flanks and culminate at the rear.
First introduced in Korea in 2012, the K900 was the first Kia saloon to adopt a rear-wheel drive system developed in-house by Kia engineers. The K900 has helped to elevate Kia’s brand value in key markets around the world, notably in Korea and North America. More than a generational redesign, the new model only carries over the K900 name from its predecessor.
The K900 is built on a new platform, with an extended wheelbase and elongated proportions. Both front and rear overhangs are shorter, while its wheelbase has grown, creating an even greater sense of spaciousness on the inside.
