    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!

      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.

    Those odd blue dots are usually quality assurance stickers. As each QA guy checks various things they put a dot on, gives a visual confirmation that certain items have been checked.

    If Kia is going to charge 65k for a vehicle please change that bullshit badge on the vehicle. This vehicle shouldn't be carrying the same badge you would see on a Kia Soul.

    Worthless "review", most of important data is incorrect. The nice clock, from Masterpiece collection of Maurice Lacroix, also has to be bad, since it is NOT in a 4 cylinder CT6 disaster (which has more dumb score than this one). Well done!

    Honda why TF do you only put the lane watch camera on just one side! I don’t care if you charged extra, but I think it should be an option for every Honda!

    4:54 our Mercedes-Benz e350 amg have this feature when you do sharp turns or you can do it manually and they are a lot faster so you can see it inflating

    I've never been a Kia fan but We bought one of these and love it. It's one of our daily drivers and it's a very comfortable car for long trips. We have taken ours from Oklahoma to new Jersey and from Oklahoma to Nevada and really enjoyed driving this car.

    Now all I need is $65,000.

    Best feature by far is how the seats pinch your butt when you go into sport mode. Innovation at its finest.

    Another Phaeton. Kia is not a $60K name, they should do what Toyota did with Lexus, or Nissan with Infinity. Create a separate luxury brand, because Kia is known for cheap cars and that is brand cannibalism.

    Did KIA upgrade the rear passengers' sunscreen curtains to be fully automatic, or still just manual, like in Doug's review of the previous model?

    Lock botton is there for the passenger to be able to diactivate all the keys so he doesn't change things accidentally! It is a nice feature!

    Acura, Genesis, and Lexus

  • SevenDeMagnus
    SevenDeMagnus Month ago

    Hi. These are examples (Lexus is in this too) It's best when creating a company that's got a formidable competition (Henry Ford and Ford is different, it didn't have any big competitors, it was the disruptor), it's best to start and position yourself as the most high-end as possible. It's easier to position a series lower, than come up and be seen as high-end.
    For almost the same amount, people would just get the naturally, luxury brands. Kia and VW (Phaeton) can make this successful if it's 1/3 the price, perhaps.

    Doug I believe u were a little ridiculously granular and a bit critical. This is a tremendous machine with a ton of features. You are kinda over analyzing stuff and a somewhat hypocritical

  • Franklin Sharp

    The lock control in the back seat is so you can have the armrest down and not change settings accidentally.

    If I win the lottery, I will buy a K900 for confort and a Stinger GT for sportiness. I don't think you need anything more than these 2 cars!

    How does it look at night? The signal cameras.

  • nazirdjon
    nazirdjon Month ago

    That blind spot camera is not practical. When changing lanes very often you have like 2-3 seconds to take quick glance at your mirror. You won't have enough time to manage all three views. In a stressful time this 3 point of view will only doyble your workload
