1. The Basics
It was crazy enough when Hyundai introduced a fancy rear-wheel-drive sedan in the 2009 model year. The Genesis reset everyone’s expectations of what this Korean automaker was capable of. It was a genuinely impressive car that didn’t compete on price alone; it didn’t have to (though it was still a bargain). And then they introduced the Equus, a flagship model that raised the bar even further.
Now Kia is getting in on the game; Hyundai’s corporate sibling wanted a little high-stakes action and their salvo into the luxury segment is the K900. It shares essentially the same architecture as the two rear-wheel-drive models mentioned above, which is a good thing since it’s a solid foundation.
