2015 Kia K900 Revealed!
THE PREMIUM K900 IS REVEALED AT THE CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL AUTOSHOW
The premium K900 is a great accomplishment for the Kia brand. This rear-wheel drive luxury sedan is offered in a direct-injected 3.8L V6 or 5.0L V8 engine and boasts eyebrow-raising premium features. As a staple of luxury, this vehicles comes with available supple Nappa leather, real walnut wood trim, triple-stage heated and cooled seats (all passengers), heated steering wheel, soundproof side glass, 12.3-inch LCD-TFT instrument cluster, 9.2-inch multimedia interface, full-colour heads-up display (auto-dimming and height adjustable), 360-degree camera monitoring system and one of the segments most impressive rear passenger accommodations. The executive-class rear seat gives command of power-reclining rear seats (with an auto setting that resets seat position upon door opening), separate automatic climate control, power front-passenger seat control (for maximum leg room), power rear sunshade, triple-zone power lumbar support, audio system command as well as a dedicated USB charger and 12V power outlet.
Available adaptive full-LED headlights with 16 bulbs provide powerful yet natural lighting, which adjust to follow the bends of the road, controls pitch while traveling up or down hills compensating for a loaded truck or rear passengers, and most impressively, actively narrows or widens the light beam pattern based on vehicle speed. Distinctive frosted white LED positioning lights frame the multi-faceted headlights and at the corners of the nose are independent LED daytime running lights and LED fog lights to ensure a safe and distinctive ride. Around back, the modern LED theme continues as attention-grabbing Light Bar technology taillights light the night in style.
The technology buffs out there will love the K900 for its 17-speaker Lexicon Logic-7 premium sound system (the same brand found in a Rolls-Royce) which is the most powerful and advanced system ever offered by Kia. This speaker arrangement is custom designed for the interior of the K900 to optimize sound staging. There’s also Bluetooth hands-free accessibility, three-month complimentary SiriusXM satellite programming along with AUX and USB ports conveniently accessed through a soft-close covered panel in the centre console.
If you appreciate the speed and agility of a vehicle, the airflow-smoothing underbody panels mounted beneath the nose engine bay and cabin reduce drag and improve efficiency, ensuring a balanced drive.
Robert Staffieri, Director of Marketing at Kia Canada Inc., was on hand to unveil the luxury vehicle. “The K900’s design, state-of-the-art technology and premium features are a testament that Kia is now a contender within the rear-drive luxury sedan segment.” “The value proposition of the K900’s equipment offering is unmatched within its segment and will be sure to surpass expectations from the most discerning luxury vehicle owners.”
The Canadian AutoShow did not only feature the Kia K900 but also the new concept vehicle ‘The Provo’ and the Forte family collection.

Our friend and our co-worker Ron has passed away, leaving us too soon yet leaving us with fond memories of our time together. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, who all knew as we did how wonderful Ron was to have be a part of our lives. He played an important role while he was here, spreading many smiles to all he encountered. You will live on in our hearts, Ron.
