2016 Kia K900 Exterior

The 2016 Kia K900 is as elegant as they come. Take the sleek profile of the Cadenza and Optima, stretch it to over 200 inches, throw in 19-inch wheels and LED lights, and you get the Kia K900. Its “tiger nose” grille is as attractive as ever and its hunkered-down stance hints at driving entertainment you might not have initially expected from Kia’s top-of-the-line luxury cruiser.
