UPDATE, 20/02/2018: Kia has officially unveiled the K900. Check it out here!
The new-generation Kia K900 has been revealed in a leaked Korean brochure this week, accompanied by preliminary specifications for the Korean flagship.
In terms of design, the K900 stays true to the teaser sketches released over the past few weeks, representing a pretty substantial overhaul from the ageing exterior of the outgoing version.
A choice of seven exterior finishes and four interior colourways will be offered in its home market, where it’s known as the K9.
Inside, the design again stays very true to the previews. There’s a new steering wheel with wood inserts, a large widescreen infotainment display sitting atop the dash, and a 12.3-inch digital driver’s cluster.
According to the brochure, the K900 will be available with three powertrain options in Korea – a 3.8-litre naturally-aspirated V6, a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8, and a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6.
Pricing in the domestic market starts at 54,900,000 South Korean won ($66,246) for the entry-level trim with the 3.8-litre V6, climbing to 93,800,000 won ($113,187) for the flagship with the 5.0-litre V8.
The Kia K900 is expected to make its official debut at the New York motor show next week, ahead of an on-sale date for markets like Korea and the US in the second quarter of 2018. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage of the K900’s reveal next week.
