2015 Kia K900: First Impressions

August 25, 2014

2015 Kia K900

Perhaps it's because our long-term 2015 Kia K900 is in a non-descript shade of gray/silver, but driving home last evening I was practically invisible in it. This may not have anything to do with the color and looks of the K900, it may have more to do with a bunch of bored commuters trying to get home. But I was cut off left and right, pulled out on, almost plowed into, or generally ignored. Maybe everyone one was texting. Or maybe they just weren't interested.

Usually when you drive a brand new model around town, especially in car-savvy L.A., there is some sense of curiosity by others on the road.

Anyway, I was fairly happy on the inside of the Kia K900. My drive home was smooth and quiet. My iPod connected easily so I could listen to a seminar while stuck in traffic. And the materials were of good quality.

It took me a while to find a comfortable driving position though. This is a large car and as you know I'm a shorty. When I adjusted my seat close enough to be able to reach the pedals, everything else was suddenly too close: the steering wheel, the rearview mirror, the plastic at my knees. I imagine this car would be very comfy for James or Cameron, our taller guys. But it won't deter me from driving it again.

The 2015 Kia K900 is a nice car. Don't ignore it because it has a Kia badge or you think it's too close to the Hyundai Equus. It deserves some attention on its own.
