We have learn a lot of new things with Soon-Nam Lee’s interview, how Kia plans to move forward with a brand that is rapidly growing not only on sales but also in technology, design and quality. Not too long ago we also had the opportunity to test drive the Kia K900, Kia’s flagship luxury sedan.
Hyundai and Kia Motors took a combined 8.9 percent of the U.S. large premium car market in May, a 1.9 percentage point increase on-year, largely thanks to the launch of the new Genesis. The automotive group ranked fourth following Mercedes-Benz (28.4 percent), BMW (18.3 percent) and Cadillac (16.6 percent). (more…)
With the arrival of the K900 (you can read our first impressions here), his first luxury sedan car, Kia Motors America had to prepare and attract new buyers to the new market with the new price range . We’ll learn more how Kia has introduce us to the SXL trim and luxury.
This is a car that we were expecting from Kia since Peter Schreyer took over and started redesigning the new Kia models. On December 17, 2010 the South Korean manufacture decided to discontinue the Amanti/Opirus, a car that was able to win some awards and also get the good rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), for a new creation that will attract a new type of car buyer to Kia.
It was only a matter of time until this car was going to be sold here, in the USA. In 2012 this car was first sold in South Korea with the name of K9 then to different markets under Quoris. For the USA and Canada market it was decided to call this car the Kia K900, a very powerful car that will bring new features that no other Kia car has brought so far.
