The Kia K900 comes with a new-for-2016 3.8L V6 that makes 311 horsepower. A 5.0L V8 is still available. The only transmission available is an 8-speed automatic.
Though the K900 is no sports car, it handles respectably, thanks to all-independent suspension and rear wheel drive. Kia has taken pains to ensure that the car is balanced and smooth in the corners, though drivers looking for sports car stiffness should look elsewhere.
Luxury is the name of the game in the K900 and nowhere is this more obvious than in the list of standard equipment. The base Premium V6 K900 comes equipped with Napa leather seating, a heated, leather wrapped steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping functions, dual-zone automatic climate control, 18-inch wheels, HID headlights, a 12-way power adjustable driver's seat, an 8-way power adjustable front passenger seat, a 14-speaker stereo, front and rear-facing parking cameras, a panoramic sunroof, heated and vented front seats, a navigation system with a 9.2" display.
The Luxury V6 K900 offers additional luxury features such as heated power-folding mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, a 900-watt Lexicon Logic 7 audio system with 17 speakers, a heated steering wheel and 3-zone climate control.
The Luxury V8 trim upgrades to the 420-horsepower 5.0L V8 engine and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Optional equipment on both Luxury trims include rear-seat adjustable lumbar, a lane-departure warning system, rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot warning systems, rear reclining seats, adaptive cruise control and a surround-view monitor.
Safety is paramount in the K900 and many of the standard features available work towards this aim. Airbags include dual front, dual rear, front and rear side airbags as well as side curtain airbags. Electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, traction control and brake assist programs are all standard.
