2015 Kia K900: Well-Designed Trunk Space
November 17, 2014
A serious luxury sedan should have a serious trunk. Even if you don't need the space every day, a full-size four-door should have the ability to take four adults on a trip that might involve luggage. Our Kia K900 doesn't disappoint in this regard.
For one, it's big. Officially, there's 15.9 cubic feet of space. That's not the biggest number you'll find on a luxury sedan, but the K900 makes good use of its space. There are no odd intrusions from the suspension or the trunk lid supports.
It also has a wide opening with a reasonable lift-over height. I've tossed two full-size suitcases in without any trouble. And those suitcases fit length-wise with room to spare.
I also like the placement of the cargo net. This seems like a no brainer, but sometimes these nets are attached in such a way that you can't actually put much underneath them. This net is spread out so it's easy to lift up and wedge something underneath.
Finally, there's a switch up front that both opens and closes the trunk lid completely. It's a nice to have feature when you drop someone off and they forget to close things up.
