2015 Kia K900 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/k900/2015/?id=32972 Kia has been building cars
for over 20 years now. And during that time the brand has grown their
line-up of cars. What started as extremely affordable econo-boxes has
bloomed into mid-sized cars offered at a great value; and now we have the
K900 which pushes the perception of what a luxury car can be. The 2015 Kia
K900 has a base price of $59,500.
If Kia is going to be selling a luxury car, then said car must look the
part. On the outside the K900 has a stylish signature grille, adaptive
front projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch wheels.
Out back the K900 looks like a BMW. It is hard to sell a luxury car to
luxury car buyers without a potent power plant under the hood. The 2015 Kia
K900 is powered by Hyundai's TAO 5.0 liter V-8 GDI engine that makes 420 horsepower and 376
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the
On the inside, Kia has tried really hard to get the luxury part right. The
seats are incredibly comfortable and covered in soft Nappa leather. All the
touch points, materials, and dash layout all give the K900 a very upscale
feel and look which is important in order to get the buyers looking for an
Audi or Lexus. Finally Kia offers a level of technology that is not readily
available at this price point which sets the car apart from the rest of the
luxury car player.
Kia says the buyer of the K900 is looking for style, technology, luxury,
and value. Brand perception is up and hopefully the K900 can make a
positive impact for Kia.

of elite car ownership to a serious rival, thanks not only to its products,
but also due to a commitment to service and reliability...

2012 Hyundai Equus Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/equus/2012/?id=32972 Everything you would
expect in a luxury sedan can be found in the 2012 Hyundai Equus. In fact
the Equus is a very nice alternative to Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes at a more
affordable price. The Equus is a RWD long wheel base luxury sedan with a
base price of $59,000. This is $15k-$30k less than is competition!
When the Equus was first launched in this country it came with a very
respectable 4.6 liter engine. But the engine certainly did not have the
guts to match up to some of the competitors in the luxury car segment. For
the 2012 model year the Equus gets an updated GDI 5.0 liter V-8 engine
produces huge numbers at 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures are
15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.
Hyundai has gone to great lengths to shed the image that their cars lack
character. Well the new fluidic design element is evident on the 2012
Hyundai Equus. Up front the Equus shares the same style front grill as the
Genesis sedan. HID Xenon headlights equipped with LED turn signals really
accent the exterior of this luxury sedan. The 19-inch chrome wheels are
also a great touch and they perfectly accentuate the other chrome accents
parts on the exterior. The Equus can easily be mistaken for a Lexus or
other high-end luxury cars.
If you got behind the wheel of a 2012 Hyundai Equus, you might think you
are in a Lexus LS 460. The gauges are very similar to that of other
high-end luxury cars and the seat adjustments are located on the door just
like they are in a Mercedes S550. There is an 8-inch navigation unit that
also displays driver information located in the center dash. The whole
interior is wrapped in high quality leather. There are lovely wood accents
throughout. The audio is handled by a 608-watt Lexicon sound system. The
driver's seats are 12-way adjustable and feature both heating and cooling.
In the back there are two premium first-class seats that can recline and
feature leg support. The center console in the rear is a mini fridge. The
2012 Hyundai Equus combines all the best features found on other luxury
cars in one great package.

Its standard V8 power, plush ride, and luxurious cabin allows the 2014
