2016 Kia K900 comes in 3 new trim levels: V6 Premium, V6 Luxury, V8 Luxury

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 19, 2015

The new Kia K900 continues to challenge conventional trends just as it did in 2015 by bagging the award ‘International Car of The Year’ by Road and Travel Magazine. It also set the highest record score in its segment by achieving the Auto Pacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Award.

The all-new 2016 K900 is filled with upgraded features and there are three new variants: V6 Premium, V6 Luxury and V8 Luxury. A new addition for the 2016 model is a new 3.8 liter, 311-horsepower V6 engine that’s offered as standard.

Other V6 standard features include navigation, panoramic sunroof, and leather seating. The exteriors of all models have been enhanced by adding an 18-inch wheel for the V6, 19-inch chrome wheel or V8, enhanced rear-end-design with updated chrome trim, front grille, taillight design and an all-new bumper.

There are also other significant changes like the addition of a Smart Power Trunk that automatically opens the trunk when the key fob is sensed for more than three seconds near the deck lid. Smart Shift and Drive and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) have also been added.

The AEB uses the front camera and an Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) 2 system, which helps in regulating the vehicle’s speed in order to maintain a set distance with the front vehicle.

It can also bring the K900 to a complete halt. On the inside, the 2016 K900 model features an enhanced navigation system which has a 9.2 inch high definition touch screen with premium audio and UVO3 Luxury Services.

UVO Luxury Services are the latest to be launched this year, including an embedded modem for direct communication with the vehicle through remote start/stop, remote lock/unlock and remote climate control via the UVO app. The App provides a full suite of My Car Zone features like Curfew, New Steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters and Speed and Geofence settings for all trim models.
