As we showed last month, Kia will introduce a brand-new flagship luxury sedan in America next year. The automaker has actually now verified that this range-topping 4-door will have its official unveiling next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show and go on sale at some point next year as the 2015 Kia K900.
Positioned beyond the automaker’s recently presented Cadenza, the brand-new Kia K900 will be a U.S.-spec version of Kia’s domestic-market K9 sedan, which is called the Quoris beyond Korea. It’s thought the starting price for this super-premium full-size rear-drive model will be someplace in the $50,000-$60,000 array.
Kia offered no extra info about its newest offering, however like its K9 alter-ego, the brand-new K900 will share of good deal of its basic platform architecture with the Hyundai Equus. Riding on a 119.9-inch wheelbase, the home-market K9 includes a mega-load of features from leather-made furniture, a head-up display and an adaptive air suspension to corner-following LED headlamps, radar-based Blind-Spot Detection/Lane Departure Warning and adaptive cruise control.
Most, if not all, are expected to turn up on the K900. Although U.S. powertrain selections stay unpredictable, it’s believed the K900 will be provided here with the 3.8-liter V6 used in the Cadenza and 5.0-liter Tau V8 from the Hyundal Equus, each teamed with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2015 Kia K900 Review
Images of the domestic-market Kia K9 (Quoris) are revealed above. We do expect that the 2015 Kia K900 will be rather comparable in both interior and outside but for the final variation we will have to wait bit longer since it will be formally presented at the LA Automobile Program.
