The new 2017 Kia K900 offers plenty of reasons why buyers shopping in the large luxury sedan should check it out. It is a large luxury sedan that is competitively priced and offers features such as a generous interior space, a strong V8 engine, a generous warranty coverage, old-school luxury-ride manners, ample power, and princely features for the money. The Kia K900 2017 release date should be expected sometime this fall.
Kia has managed to include a winning formula in one 2017 Kia K900 package: ample space, a strong powertrain, a serene ride quality, and abundant features. Here is the catch – all this for a bargain price – how cool is that! Here, the bargain price is set at $49,000 – it might not be as cool as you think but it is in this class of cars.
In return for this price, which is pretty much for a Kia branded car, the 2017 Kia K900 comes with a wealth of features splattered everywhere on several of its vehicular facets. There’s lots of practicality here. Both the passenger space ad cargo volume are abundant thanks to the relatively huge footprints. The amount of technologies it offers is simply amazing and nothing else on the market today offers that much for that price point.
It is supremely comfortable and does a good job of isolating its occupants from the rigors of a road trip. But even with such a magnificent 2017 Kia K900 interior packaged with all the bells and whistles Kia could get its hands on. There’re several reasons however why German vehicles are pricier.
The 2017 Kia K900 plays in a court that is different from its league, one with all the stars such the BMW 7 Series, 2017 Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and E-Class, Audi A6, and the Lexus LS 460. Besides the brand perception, each of this brand is superior in terms of interior quality, overall refinement, feature content, driving dynamics, and performance. Just book a test drive with any of these vehicles and compare the ride quality with the K900 and you’ll quickly realize why there is a price difference.
2017 Kia K900 Release Date & Price
Speculations are rife within and without the industry that the K900 release is slated for the fall. We couldn’t reach Kia for a comment as the information is regarded as ‘sensitive’ at the moment. Pricing is yet to be announced, but insider rumors allege the vehicle will most likely go for sale at the same price point as the existing model that costs $49,000.
