2. Korean Luxury
Introducing a full-blown luxury sedan is an interesting way of celebrating Kia’s 20th anniversary in the U.S., though it makes us wonder why Lincoln can’t do the same. Obviously they’ve been around a lot longer.
In any event the K900 comes standard with all kinds of high-end goodies. It rides on 19-inch chrome wheels; features heated, power-folding, auto-dimming side-view mirrors; there are also LED headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and dual exhaust pipes. Inside, the car’s got a navigation system with a 9.2-inch display, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, Bluetooth connectivity and much more. Suffice it to say this thing is loaded and there are only a handful of options.
Accordingly, the K900 is a relative bargain compared to similar offerings form Lexus, BMW or Audi. Base price for a V8-powered version is right around $60,400, including 900 bucks for shipping and handling. The most affordable 7 Series starts around $75,000 and only comes with a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.
