Kia releases renderings of redesigned 2019 K900 flagship sedan before April reveal.

http://www.nydailyne...ticle-1.3862925

 

kia-k900-profile-tease-photo.jpg

 

Galore of teaser photos and videos over the last two weeks gave us our first peeks at the redesigned 2019 Kia K900 luxo-barge.

Now, the Korean automaker teases us once again with the first rendered sketches of what the revamped flagship will look like.

A grand departure from the tiger nose grille currently found on the Optima, Forte and Stinger, the K900 takes on a design Kia says is based on a concept called, “Gravity of Prestige,” leading to a more restrained and tasteful interpretation of the more raucous design cues of the Stinger fastback.

Kia also says the front grille’s “Quadric Pattern” features 176 “jewel-like” cells, creating an illusion of energy – whatever that means, similar to that of the spindle/Darth Vader-esque grille found on the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept. The Duplex Comet headlights are allegedly inspired by “the trajectory of light,” according to Kia.

Because the K900 is slated to go on sale in select markets in the latter half of the year, the idea of New York being the optimal place to lift the curtain – as it’s the last major auto show before the second quarter of 2018 – seemed to make perfect sense.

Earlier this week however, the automaker squashed rumors of a New York Auto Show reveal after a teaser video was released cryptically mentioning an April 2018 release date.

Since the sketches were released yesterday, Kia offers no more information related to engine specs, fuel economy or size of the flagship’s redesign. The leading theory at the moment is since the previous-gen K900 was based on the now-defunct Hyundai Equus, the new K900 will be based on the same platform as the Genesis G90.

That means the K900 could potentially come with the same standard 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 and optional 5.0-liter V8 as the G90, while also potentially offering the same rear-wheel drive drivetrain with all-wheel drive as an option.

Very doubtful about how far this can go. At this segment, brand still matters more than anything else. Just look at the previous K9, Genesis, or even Phaeton and Infiniti. None seem to have been able to break into the traditional territory of Merc, BMW and Audi.

 

Lexus comes close but I'm sure everyone has an elderly at home who will tell you why spend so much on a Japanese car. Let alone Korean.

 

The K900 can be a very effective product, but at this segment, we're talking desirability.

Too bad the K9 is not really for the Singapore market.

 

Judging from the sales of the Genesis, doubt KIA will bring this in.

Nice try from Komoco to bring in the genesis. However the Korean status is still a long way off from the Germans

Yep agree.  Hard to figure out the target market for the K900. 

 

Would take a brave towkay to pull up in a K900 amongst a sea of S-classes and 7 series, a world where even the A8 or LS isn't exactly part of the status quo...

Front like bmw 6 grand coupe


But overall is a nice car. They are S class level with E class price. However this model will not work in sg, first i doubt they have LHD version and the engine too big. Even 7er and jaguar xj bringing in 2.0L engine
