Kia Motors introduces first-ever rear-drive sedan
in North America at Los Angeles Auto Show
Los Angeles - The highly anticipated K900 rear-drive sedan took center
stage today as Kia Motors America (KMA) took the wraps off its new
flagship amid a packed house of media representatives from around the
world at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Modern and elegant, the K900 signals a new era for Kia and
advances the brand to new levels of sophistication. Highly intuitive
and advanced technology combine with superb craftsmanship and materials
to boldly announce Kia’s entry into the rear-drive large-sedan segment.
The new V8 flagship debuts with 420 horsepower, the V6 variant produces 311
The all-new 2015 K900 is
poised to challenge the full-size rear-drive luxury sedan segment with
an extensive list of standard equipment, world-class accommodations and
stunning design that will redefine consumer perception and expectations
of the Kia brand.
“Next year will mark Kia Motors’ 20th anniversary in the U.S. market,
and the all-new K900 is a symbol of how far the brand has come and the
next bold example of the challenger spirit that has benefitted Kia over
nearly two decades of growth and maturation,” said Michael Sprague,
executive vice president, marketing & communications, KMA. “Kia’s rise
over the last five years has been fueled by a willingness to challenge
the status quo with vehicles such as the Optima, Sorento and Cadenza,
which have brought new and more affluent customers to our showrooms and
dramatically raised the profile of the brand while maintaining our value
proposition. The K900 is the next logical progression for Kia. It
demonstrates what Kia is capable of and will help redefine what the Kia
brand stands for.”
