    CORRECTION! The K900 is only offered this year with a turbocharged V6, with no V8 option. Big thanks to C&D and Motor Trend for getting this wrong. Last time I rely on them for info!

      The V6 also has 365 horsepower. The last generation had 311.

      Doug, I like your presentations, but I think you were kind of out of line on your pin. Don't blame Car and Driver and Motor Trend. Blame yourself. You were right there at the Kia dealership. You were going to present something to the world, it was completely on you to verify your facts. Car and Driver and Motor Trend will take their own lumps for their own mistakes. You take your lumps for yours. It was your mistake. Yours. Also, you take authority away from yourself by begging at the feet of car magazines for data on new cars. Brother, make a few calls, talk to the dealership people. Look at the online configurators. Being sloppy is one thing, but then doubling down and trying to blame others made it worse. Seriously.

      Booooo, V6 is my least favorite engine! No matter how powerful, how fast, they sound terrible!

        Very, very similar to Genesis G90 for $15,000 less. Silly to go Genesis if you want Kia/Hyundai luxury

            Apparently no one at KIA had heard about another South-Korean car company called HYUNDAI. Because if they did, and after what has happened to the Equus and Genesis line, they would not have bothered with this crazy model. Let me see now -- USD $65,000 -- for a KOREAN sedan that comes with a 6-yilnder powerplant and one that nobody has even heard about? Yeah, right.... I take three of these, please.

                  Analog clock next to “futuristic” gauge cluster with a goodbye chime is just plain tacky. But then it’s an Asian car...

                    Is it just me or it’s looks like Nercedes, outside is reaaly similar to Mercedes, interior looks realy similar to Mercedes, they just change something so it dosen’t look like 1 to 1 Mercedes!

                            Reason why it's unknown is because nobody wants a Kia... You can't just make shit cars for eternity, and suddenly expect people to start being interested in your more expensive models. Even though, modern Kias are actually very decent. It's the stigma. It won't just go away. I have to say though - turn signal blind spot cameras is a million dollar idea.

                                Mercedez wood interior is also fake. I have driven an S class and I was not impressed by its quality materials honestly. For an100 thousand dollars car I was expecting better materials. I think KIA did a great job with this car for $65,000.

                                    The exterior is rather boring; however, the interior is so gorgeous. The matte wood trim looks very nice - it reminds me of the wood used in Land Rover vehicles.

                                                      Lock button seems kind of obvious for me, it's just to make sure that you don't change anything by mistake if you're a passenger there just by moving your hand or placing it on buttons.

                                                            So people are still saying things "On a Kia" about these cars. C'mon Doug! The Hyundai Group has been smashing it for the last few years! It's the third biggest car company in the world at the moment. Just today I saw 5 Stingers in my little town. Awesome company. Awesome cars from the Stingers to the Genesis line and this beast !

                                                            Also of it's the 3.3 litre twin turbo it's 365hp not 311

The rear lock control is so you don’t accidentally change something when your hand is resting on the armrest. Integrating the analogue clock with the infotainment screen is very cool. Plus, you can tell how quiet the car is by the sound of Doug’s voice...there is no outside sound.

If you get such a nice car for half the price. Even those cars with their pricetag don't have a blind spot camera in your gauges.

Of course ... I won't buy one for myself yet, I will let my wife try it first :) But, its time to recognize their commitment. They have done a great job at rebuilding their reputation, it only took 20 years, but here we are!
