    Kia - K 900

    Just saw a commercial for the new 2014 Kia K 900. To be released in spring. Looks pretty sweet from what I saw. Anyone know anything about it?

    The vehicle is made to be the segment between the Equus and Genesis. In an essence, it'd compete with the Genesis, but it's got features in the Equus.

    It will be RWD, will have 3.8 V6 and 5.0 V8.

    I think it looks good. Let's see if it is all it's led up to be.

    I thought it was the the new optima at first. To me it kinda looks like a bigger, beefed up version of the optima.

    I like the looks of this K900 better than the new Genesis. I really wanted to like the new Genesis for its performance but I just don't like the way it looks. Especially from the front.

    Some more goodies: http://www.kia.com/us/en/vehicle/k900/2015/experience?story=build&cid=sem&ppc=y

    I also prefer this look over the Genesis sedan. I always like the Optima exterior over the Sonata as well. Now if only KIA would hop into the performance coupe category *ahem*

    The Kia's and Hyundai are probably to safest on the roads today versus when they first came out. My wife was totally against me getting a sonata.
