2015 Kia K900: Take a Seat and Relax
October 21, 2014
A few weeks ago, the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, told assembled reporters to "r-e-l-a-x" regarding the team's suboptimal early games. Ah, but how to relax? How about taking a drive in a 2015 Kia K900?
Our K900 is a really great place to be if you enjoy that old-school driving vibe of the big American luxury sedan. Some of my fellow coworkers have already described it as "buttery" or noted how impressively quiet it is at highway speeds. And sure enough, the K900 glides down the road with ease. This is a one-hand-on-the-wheel type of car.
The K900 is also unapologetically designed to be comfortable. You can't get an air or adjustable suspension on it, so either you like the suspension tuning or you don't. The driver seat is wide and, lacking major or adjustable lateral side bolsters, is easy to slide in and out of. There are adjustable driving modes for the steering and gas pedal sensitivity, but setting it to "Sport" seems akin to asking Josh Groban to perform in Nike workout gear.
I suppose all of these factors could be viewed as negatives. But I'm more than happy to just kick back and enjoy the Kia for what it is. Maybe Mr. Rodgers can add the K900 to his list of product endorsements.
