New for 2019

Kia's K900 flagship sedan has been completely redesigned for the 2019 model year with a new powertrain, additional technology, an enhanced chassis, and more luxury.

Trim Levels

The full-size K900 is Kia's largest sedan, positioned above the smaller Cadenza, Optima, Forte, and Rio sedans.

2019 Kia K900 Luxury V6: The K900 is offered in one nicely equipped trim that includes 19-inch wheels, adaptive suspension, LED headlights, power-folding side view mirrors with puddle lamps, 20-way power driver's seat, quilted Nappa leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a 17-speaker Lexicon Logic 7 audio system, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster screen, a 9.7-inch head-up display, a Maurice Lacroix analog clock, 64-color ambient lighting, a front wireless phone charger, a power rear sunshade, and a suite of driver-assist safety features.

The VIP package offers added luxury and tech with a 12.3-inch instrument panel screen, upgraded headliner trim, power rear seats (14-way passenger side, 12-way driver side), a rear wireless phone charger, ventilated rear seats, tri-zone climate control, and a front passenger chauffer seat switch.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The K900 is powered by a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 that produces 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque (same as the Kia Stinger and Genesis G70). An eight-speed automatic routes power to the standard all-wheel-drive system and the sedan delivers an EPA-rated 18/25 mpg city/highway.

Safety

The 2019 K900 comes standard with a long list of driver-assist safety features including blind-spot monitoring with avoidance assist, rear-cross traffic alert with reverse braking, emergency automatic front braking with collision alert, safe exist assist, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with lane centering, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view monitor, driver attention warning, and high-beam assist. The Blind-Spot View Monitor displays a live video feed of the adjacent lanes in the instrument cluster when the turn signal is activated.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2019 K900 offers 45.7 inches of front seat legroom and 36.6 inches of rear seat leg room. For comparison, the Acura RLX offers 42.3 and 38.8 inches, respectively. The K900 can hold 15.3 cubic feet of cargo in its trunk.

Technology

Like safety features, the K900 comes loaded with lots of standard tech including a 12.3-inch infotainment touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 9.7-inch head-up display, a 7.0-inch instrument panel screen, a haptic steering wheel, a 17-speaker Lexicon Logic 7 audio system, and a wireless phone charger. The VIP package adds the larger 12.3-inch instrument panel screen and rear seat wireless phone charging.

What We Think

In a First Drive review of the redesigned 2019 Kia K900, we liked the interior's uncluttered layout, unpolished wood trim, and high-quality materials. Although there are some cheap plastics, they're kept away from touch points. The Comfort+ mode creates a very cushy ride and rear seat comfort is impressive with the VIP package. Right rear seat legroom can be maximized with the chauffer switch that can move the front passenger seat to the most forward position. The infotainment system is easy to use and the 12.3-inch touchscreen is responsive and positioned close to the driver and passenger. We also appreciated the optional 12.3-inch instrument panel screen and Lexicon audio system.

The full-size K900 prioritizes comfort over sportiness but still handles winding roads well with crisp turn-in and controlled body motions. Acceleration feels quick and the eight-speed automatic is smooth and isn't afraid to drop a gear for additional thrust. Passing vehicles and climbing steep grades are easy. If you consider the long list of standard features and the starting price, the K900 is loaded with value.

We concluded our drive review by saying, "All the improvements Kia made to the 2019 K900 have created a truly upscale vehicle, proving you can have a premium car without the wallet-bleeding price tag. Buy the big Kia for the experience of owning something special that flies under the radar instead of showing off your wealth."
