The all-new 2019 Kia K900 has broken cover ahead of its reveal later this month. The real-deal photography shows us a crystal clear view of Kia’s second-generation sedan, which appears to be trying hard to look like a stately German sedan.
We’ve already seen sketches of the K900, so the photos are not saying much in terms of new information. What the photos do confirm is design cues such as the LED accents in the headlights and the glitzy looking grille. The brightwork and overall design shape appear similar to that of the full-size German sedans the K900 is imitating.
Imitation continues in the interior, which looks a lot like it was designed at BMW with its horizontal theme and widescreen LCD screen atop the dash panel.
The imitation isn’t stopping with design. The second-generation K900 is wider and longer than today’s K900, meaning it is nearly the same size as the Mercedes-Benz S Class. It’s growth is credit to a new platform, which is shared with the Genesis G80 and Kia Stinger GT.
Engine options are expected to be similar to its stablemates, meaning a twin-turbocharged V-6 and V-8 option are likely. Kia has been mum on mechanical details thus far, so we’re going to have to wait until March 28th to learn more (unless more leaks out beforehand).
