After some sketches, Kia unveiled the first pictures of her new flagship, the Kia K900 which will be the star of the Korean brand’s booth at the New York show.
For once is not customary, the Kia K900 remains true to the sketches. At the front, the Korean limousine sports an imposing grille with a more discreet “Tiger Nose”. This grille composed of 176 small “diamonds”is flanked by optical blocks with a double luminous signature . The new, more assertive look of the optical blocks is reinforced by the more indented shield.
The Kia K900 relies on chrome to emphasize the most important stylistic elements at the front, the body line, the exhausts and the rear lights. The latter benefit as at the front of a double light signature.
Kia announces a longer and wider K900 without giving any numbers, except for the wheelbase. This one gains 6 cm to reach 3.10 m , and is intercalated between the short and long versions of the German limousines.
If no cliché of the interior has been revealed, a commercial brochure of the Korean version called K9 has emerged on the Korean web. It confirms the presence of a 12.3-inch diagonal infotainment screenand buttons that illuminate when they detect the hands of the driver and passengers. The Kia K900 also features a mood lighting developed with Pantone that offers 7 presets with 64 adjustable settings.
Kia has also succumbed to the fashion of analog watches between the central vents. The Korean manufacturer has teamed up with Swiss manufacturer Maurice Lacroix.
On the Korean market, the Kia K9 takes over the blocks of the Genesis G80, the 3.3-liter, 370-hp, 510-hp, 3.3-liter V6 and the 426-hp 5-liter V8 . Both engines are coupled an eight-speed automatic transmission
