2015 Kia K900 Fuel Economy Released

By | January 09, 2014
Fuel economy numbers are out for Kia's $60,000+ luxury flagship sedan. The V-6 version receives a 18/27 mpg city/highway rating while the V-8 is rated at 15/23 mpg city/highway. Unsurprisingly, the ratings are identical to the V-6 Hyundai Genesis and the V-8 Equus, two of Kia's sister cars. The V-6 K900 is able to achieve 311 horsepower while the V-8 will deliver 420 ponies; both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2015 Kia K900 is a follow-up to the Kia Cadenza, an upmarket sedan. But the K900 truly enters luxury territory to compete with top German luxury cars. The K900 will offer amenities like active cruise control and brake assist, a panoramic sunroof, full LED headlights, heated and cooled rear seats, and a premium version of UVO infotainment system.
While it will compete with top luxury flagships, the Kia K900 is not as fuel efficient as many of them. The BMW 7 Series has superior fuel economy ratings in both V-6 and V-8 form, as does the Audi A8. We will have to see how the K900 drives to make our final judgment of the car. The K900 is set to arrive in showrooms this year. Source: FuelEconomy.gov
