‘It's a fashion statement’: Expect lots of new colors and powertrains

Kia is apparently feeling confident enough in the early sales figures of its new Stinger sedan to be mulling ideas for future variants of its GT-inspired fastback. The brand's North American product planner tells AutoGuide it wants to keep the nameplate's lineup fresh with frequent updates and additions.

Optima and Sedona are also updated for 2019

After those teasers and brochure shots, the 2019 Kia K900 flagship sedan is here in the metal, presented at the New York Auto Show. Kia reminds us that the only thing carried over from the old car is the name, but the car's design is still reserved rather than ostentatious.

Flagship will debut at the New York International Auto Show

We have been posting sketches and teaser images of the upcoming Kia K900 sedan, but photos of the real thing are already available in South Korea. Some presentation slides of the car, wearing the name "K9," have made it online on a Korean motoring site.

There's a virtual gauge cluster and a lot of wood and leather

A little while ago, we posted teaser sketches of the new Kia K900 flagship. So far, we've learned how it looks from front to side to rear, but the interior has remained a mystery. Today, Kia released this sketch of the dashboard, which seems to be as restrainedly designed as the exterior.

The 2019 K900 was developed by Kia's Korean and U.S. divisions.

LeBron James is out to prove that he really drives his Kia K900 and responds to tweets from cynics in a new three-commercial ad campaign. The first one puts James in the sedan to pick up $10 million from someone who bet that he didn't drive the Kia.

Forget LeBron's Kia, Wooden Acting And Bad Singing Abound

National car ads with basketball stars are the tip of the iceberg. Many crimes against acting have been committed by very tall men in autos of all stripes.

Teased

Judging by this latest teaser photo released by LeBron James on Facebook, it looks like Kia is preparing a special red and black K900 King James Edition to be released this weekend.

Kia has added a new Premium trim to its struggling K900 sedan that trims $5,000 from the starting price, but removes a number of notable luxury features.

SEMA

Kia revealed a monster-powered K900 – with output approaching 650 horsepower – this week at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Fittingly called the "High-Performance" K900, the sedan gets a Garrett 2871R twin-turbo application, which boosts the 5.0-liter V8 engine from its stock rating of 420 hp.

Kia is getting all set for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and among its vehicles is something that seems pretty mean.

Report

Kia is moving into unknown territory with its $60,000 K900 luxury sedan in many ways. Not only will it act as the company's flagship model, it will be the Korean brand's first car in the US with rear-wheel drive and a V8 engine. The first batch will hit showrooms in March, but according to Edmunds, it will be a soft launch in some ways, because only around 30 percent of dealers have paid a premium to sell the plush ride.

Kia made a splash when it announced that Laurence Fishburne would revisit Morpheus, his bespectacled, blade-wielding badass character from the Matrix trilogy for a Super Bowl commercial. When we originally broke that story, we offered up a brief synopsis of the spot, produced by David&Goliath.

You don't view your car as an alternative to air travel, ready to wheel between countries at triple-digit Autobahn speeds. Heck, you don't even take the long way home. Instead, you commute in fender-to-fender gridlock looking to be assuaged by sybaritic luxuries, your ride serving as a four-wheeled extension of your living room. Yet when it comes time to vote with your poc

News of the Kia brand's inclusion in this year's onslaught of Super Bowl ads got out in December of last year, but other than the fact that the coming K900 flagship would carry the day, we knew nothing about the spot. Now AdWeek has revealed that it is Morpheus - he of The Matrix and guru for The One - who will guide us into a previously inconceivable reality in which Kia is a luxury car maker.
