    CORRECTION! The K900 is only offered this year with a turbocharged V6, with no V8 option. Big thanks to C&D and Motor Trend for getting this wrong. Last time I rely on them for info!

      311 HP has to be wrong. The 3.3 Twin Turbo engine that Hyundai/Kia puts out is about 365 Hp, 376 Torque...just like the Stinger. Motor Trend is completely biased to rate it at a 2.5 out of 5 primarily because of the badge.

    I hear K9 and it just sounds like "canine" wordplay. But, being a luxury sedan it's very un-K9 friendly.

    The KIA name and logo are ugly even for a regular car, what they were thinking, they need to create a new brand and symbol.

    Oh, Doug. You made a comment about "Emoji's" having an apostrophe, which is a good catch, but you, my friend, at 15:40 you said: "Daylight Savings Time" with an "s." Let me be so bold as to correct you since grammar is important right? "Savings" is something you have in the bank. It's "Daylight Saving Time." No "s." Now carry on with your otherwise great review. :)

    I have a 2014 Kia optima turbo SX and that thing is nice And very sexy looking I put the K5 emblems On my car and people get so confused and think it’s Lexus And for a four-cylinder turbo engine I got mine up to 145 on the highway until it felt like it was going airborne And I timed it around 20 seconds I took the governor out of course I believe we can hit 160 easily I just need more downforce I love how this car has heated rear seats In a sedan And ventilated and heated front seats and this car is so sexy when you upgraded mine is white with a black roof and I blacked out the rooms And damn it looks sexy

    The wood in the dashboard, steering wheel, rear console, and seats is lovely, and it gives the car a luxurious look and feel.
    I have always wanted car brands like KIA and Hyundai and other mainstream car manufacturers to get into the luxury car business, in order to raise the competition and make rivals drop their prices.
    We ordinary people deserve to be able to afford a luxurious car and own it and maintain it.

    This interior already looks way, way better than Audi and bmw (unless you like their minimalist design), it only trails class leading Mercedes. Even then, if you swap this interior in a Mercedes it won't look out of place. I am not fan of the exterior styling though.

    Nice wood..Finally wood trim that doesn't look like Montgomery Ward furniture from the 50s. Did anyone besides grandpa ever like that look?
    l like the convex/concave stamp on the paddles...Very helpful to the blind. l noticed that on the drive thru ATM at my bank there are instructions in braille... Nice touch by the designers
    l also like the rear cam in the turn signal as its a good incentive for others to use their indicators

    Doug the rear lock for the controls is so that you can lock yourself out so you’re not accidentally hitting buttons/switches. Sometimes you just have to simply think simply. It’s a good feature and very practical.

If the car gets too much water damage and the car is submerged in water, those blue dots actually turn purple. Just thought I'd let you know.
