2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for May — Meets the EPA Numbers, Falls Short on Luxury

June 17, 2015

2015 Kia K900

Another month, another 144 gallons of fuel streamed through our 2015 Kia K900. How many miles did that yield? Closest guess without going over wins absolutely nothing!

May 14, 2015

2015 Kia K900

Driven mostly around town in April, our long-term 2015 Kia K900 didn't break any fuel economy records during the past 30 days, but that wasn't such a bad thing, either.

April 8, 2015

2015 Kia K900

We added 2,000 miles to our 2015 Kia K900's odometer in March, and nearly half of those miles were covered on Engineering Editor Jay Kavanagh's round-trip from L.A. to Phoenix.

2015 Kia K900

2015 Kia K900: Engine Continues To Impress

February 25, 2015

2015 Kia K900

Most luxury sedans are moving away from using a V8 engine as the standard offering. The 2015 Kia K900 not only comes standard with a 420-horsepower V8, there are no other options. Thankfully, it gives you very few reasons to want anything else.

2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for January

February 5, 2015

2015 Kia K900

After Dan's trip to Oregon in our 2015 Kia K900 in December, January ended up being a pretty quiet month. We logged about 1,200 miles and observed fuel economy similar to what we've seen in prior months.

2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 8, 2015

2015 Kia K900

December was a busy month for our 2015 Kia K900 sedan, with nearly 3,400 miles added. My annual Christmas trip to Oregon and back is to blame for half of them, but since I've only just returned this is the first you've heard of it.

2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for November

December 5, 2014

2015 Kia K900

Our long-term 2015 Kia K900 added a hair more than 825 miles to its odometer while consuming just shy of 47 gallons of California's best premium 91-octane gasoline. Using all fingers and toes, this calculates to 17.6 mpg for the month.

2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for October

November 10, 2014

2015 Kia K900

We added about 1,200 miles to the odometer of our 2015 Kia K900 in October. It's been in the hands of editors who live near the office, who undoubtedly appreciate the cruiser's ability to soak up Los Angeles's poorly maintained roads. I predict some road trips in the K900's future if we want to hit our goal of 20,000 miles over 12 months.

2015 Kia K900: Road Trip Fuel Economy

September 12, 2014

2015 Kia K900

"It can't be this bad," I muttered to myself last week as I tabulated the first three weeks of fuel consumption data for our new 2015 Kia K900 sedan.

The average worked out to 15.3 mpg, which compared poorly to the V8-powered Kia's EPA Combined rating of 18 mpg. A closer look at its component parts, 15 mpg City and 23 mpg Highway, suggested a distinct lack of freeway miles. More of them, I reasoned, would put things right. But there was only one way to confirm my theory.

Road trip.

2015 Kia K900: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 8, 2014

2015 Kia K900

August 11, 2014 was the first date we put gas in the 19.8-gallon tank of our 2015 Kia K900 sedan. Its 5.0-liter V8 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission haven't seen much open road action just yet, and it has been obliged to keep several in-town appointments for check-in activities such as photo shoots and measurement sessions.
