Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Kia K900

5. The Drive

The K900 redeems many of its shortcomings when you start driving it. Overall the car provides an enjoyable on-road experience. The 5.0-liter V8 has tons of power and torque that imbues this beastly sedan with impressive giddy-up. Nail the accelerator and it leaps ahead with vigor, but it doesn’t stop pulling at higher speeds, either.

The eight-speed automatic transmission is very responsive and smooth, delivering the appropriate gear at the just right time. The car is also flagship-quiet; wind and road noise are essentially absent.

The Kia K900 is a nice car. It’s powerful, responsive, quiet and comfortable; our complaints about it are relatively minor. When you factor in its pricing, which is MUCH less than comparable German sedans it only becomes more appealing.
