The Kia K900 is the brand’s flagship luxury sedan that is platform mates with the Hyundai Genesis, making it no surprise that K900 nets the same fuel economy ratings with a best of 27 mpg highway. 

Two engines are available with the K900, either a 3.8-liter V6 that makes 311 hp or a 5.0-liter V8 that pumps out 420 hp. With the V6 under the hood, the EPA says that the K900 should return 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg combined. When fitted with the V8, the car is pegged to return 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway which combine for 18 mpg.

Both powerplants are hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels.
