2015 Kia K900: Luxury That Relieves Misery
February 13, 2015
A construction project has turned traffic into a mental meltdown. Drivers are raging through intersections. Horns blare and tempers go rabid. On-ramps close, then magically reopen, offering hope. But it's a trap, leading into a dead-end clump of unmoving cars.
In short, yesterday was the zombie apocalypse of commutes. Rather than 45 minutes, it ate up an hour and 45 minutes, in a particularly gruesome way.
What made it somewhat bearable was the 2015 Kia K900, which I was driving for the first time. The ultra-cushy ride, intuitive controls and safety features, including the blind spot warning and head-up display, got me home with minimally jangled nerves.
My colleague Jason Kavanagh described the K900 as a "big, soft quiet car," not in a good way. He's right in saying that it's not a driver's car. But I needed roadway coddling yesterday, and that's just what I got.
