The 2019 Kia K900 is a $65,000 luxury sedan you probably haven't heard of. Today I'm reviewing the K900 to show you all about the Kia K900 and its cool features and quirks -- and I'm driving the 2019 Kia K900 to show you how it drives.

  • 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! www.motortrend.com/cars/kia/k900/ www.caranddriver.com/kia/k900

    • Doug, I love your reviews. However, the clock in the K900 is a Maurice Lacroix. They are a Swiss watchmaker and the Masterpiece is one of their models.

    • U said u drove the v8 model. Your lying to yourself!

    • +Android Wazko Lol credibility was lost while writing for Jalopnik. They're just a bunch of hipsters that drive brown diesel Volkswagen station wagons. There were so many moments I cringed in this video. 311 hp turbo V6? Like, he didn't even question the output of a turbo V6 being the same as everybody else's NA V6? Including Kia's own V6? What is this lock button on the armrest with buttons for??? 5.7 second 0-60 time, 4/10??? That's literally pretty damn quick unless you're strictly comparing it to sports cars. That's like giving it a 0/10 for utility because it can't tow as much as an Kenworth. Or because it lacks a third row. Or removable doors and skid plates. I enjoy watching him or even reading Jalopnik articles from time to time, but that whole crew is largely for the "Hurrr Durrr too mainstream" hipster group and I find myself contemplating cancelling my internet service upon reading the stupid crap. "Corvette smells like plastic, unacceptable at 55k" "Much less capable Subaru STI costs 40k and literally is a 17k car with a plastic interior. I must hide erection"

    • +waffle911 Yeah, they share platform/drivetrain development costs/research. So they are very much the same in terms of tech but are still competitors.

  • This is a great car !

  • Damn....Kia has stepped their game up.

  • I watch this channel in korea KIA(korea) makes awesome car K900

  • Dam right I only feel safe where theres nerds we make good friends the rest of the land is like fuck the out side world now that’s full of enemies

  • “Look my car my car is on screen “ 😂😂😂😂

  • Unknown to most luxury sedan buyers because it's Kia

  • "I don't know anything about clocks, I dont even wear a watch." HOW DO YOU TELL TIME SIR?!?!

  • Someone better off tell kia their grill design is ugly AF and ruins any front end design attempt

  • Theres no comparing v8 to a v6. I dont care how many turbos you slap on. The response of a v8 is amazing.

  • this guys must have something against kia

  • The purple dials look like lightsabers that don’t have handles

  • i would its compotition for the continental, the acura rlx, and the infiniti q70

  • THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS!!!

  • Your Doug Demuro..the Car God...Car God doesn't rely on Motor Trend....Motor Trend relies on Doug Demuro.

  • Im guessing the lock button on back seat armrest is so you can actually rest your arm there without accidentally pressing a button.

  • Nice car

  • Good

  • The turn signal camer, whats it called, can I have it installed on my car? I have to have that.. I don't like the ass

  • The exterior looks like a mercedes but the interior is amazing!

  • This guy is such a DICK, super annoying!

  • Looks like a mercedes s class

  • 10 years ago you couldn’t give me a Kia for free! Now....well....I just bought one and I’m very impressed. Korea is the new Japan.

    • I still wouldn't buy one. How does it feel to be a lemming?

  • I'm never buying a Kia, but the tech lane change thing is cool.

  • The maurice watch is no cheapass watch

  • I love the leaving video ,it was a nice touch

  • yall remember 1990s kia ,ya shut up the came the long way stop your shit face complaining

    • Haha...a Kia defender. How adorable.

  • Seriously, this car should be sold in Europe. I would buy one the same day it would come.

  • Make a 2008 town car vid

  • So i know who's getting my money now

    • You're crazy.

  • Hyundai should have done a Lexus here and make up a name for their luxury brand.

  • 10:54 for the kids

  • For the kids 10:51

  • For the kids 10:51

  • Doug's the kinda guy who won't shoot a single car review video without saying the following words 'Quirks and Features'

    • One, that joke is getting old. Two, that's the shtick of his videos.

  • Doug, regarding blind spots in rear view mirrors check this setting (it saves me from accident at least few times) : www.itstactical.com/skillcom/driving/what-if-i-told-you-that-vehicles-dont-have-blind-spots/

  • You always sound like critic towards the car and not appreciating the functionality just because it’s Kia

    • Does that insult your love of Kia? He does this in every review.

  • better than Lexus Es

  • Are you genuinely trying to review this car or is it more like a poking fun at it kinda thing, sounds more like the latter..... you should post some genuine content

    • He should be poking fun at it. It's a 60k Kia for crying out loud. It's laughable. By the way, watch his other videos. He does the same type of thing in all reviews.

  • Any korean car is SHIT!

  • 11:00 Doug the the reason why there is a lock button at the back is cause a lot of Koreans in the upper middle class and above have drivers to drive them around, however not everyday or every moment are they present so people switch between driving the car themselves and then being driven in. So there’s a button for you to press if you forgot to unlock it and then you sit at the back

  • Twin turbo 3.3 V6 with 365 HP

  • Sport mode is for running away from bad guys

  • Kia stands for Kool in America

    • Um, no it don't. hahaha to funny.

  • This Real ninja future..

  • I thought I heard him said he borrow this Kia from North Korea. Lol

  • Did even open it up at all? Wasted time

  • The interior are similiar like a bmw 7 serie

    • You need glasses.

  • Kia is such an underappreciated brand. They put in things that would most consider useless but to some they might be useful so they think why not have it anyway . They really care about having options for everyone

    • +Justin Luttrell I own a 2014 Cadenza SXL, How could anyone not become a fanboy when the vehicles are Soo good? I will never buy anything but Kia ever again.

    • +Jack D Have you ever owned a post-2006 Kia or Hyundai? I have a 2012 Soul with currently 113,000 miles and love it. If you don't understand the hype, go test drive a Stinger GT.

    • Actually they are such an overrated brand. Just like Hyundai and Subaru. The Kia fanboy brigade is getting ludicrous.

    • The mere fact that they bother to make satellite radio standard on so many models vs the cheap manufacturers that make you pay extra even on $40,000 vehicles....I love it.

  • The lock for the controls in the back is for the passenger so he/she does not accidentally change his or her settings if for example they are asleep.

  • I need that screen for stinger gt2.

  • one thing you didnt mention is Kia has no rental car program when you have to get it fixed under warranty...I learned the hard way when my 2014 Soul blew its first engine at 19k miles and its second engine at only 47k miles. I got stuck paying 2 weeks rental both times...That was 400 bucks each time. They wound up having to buy it back when engine 3 died at 62k and no...i never hotrodded it. They kept putting the wrong oil in it...i made SURE i let Kia do all the oil changes for a reason...because they will fight you tooth and nail about warranty service if they dont do the maintenance.

  • Doug the type of guy to smell the fart and enjoy it!

    • alsubaie abdullah LOL you’re probably totally right.

  • Kia has come so far. Just bought a 2019 Optima and it drives beautifully and the design looks so hot 🔥

    • Me too! GT line top trim. Kia is really on its way for a great success.

    • duddy morris yess! Stingers are hot cars. More people would buy the optima if it had a bmw logo on it. It’s a status symbol thing sadly. The new telluride is a nice one too. I’m proud of my Kia: )

    • Hannah I’ve been breaking my neck at Kias the last 6 months or so I feel like. All their sedans look REALLY good. The “but it’s a Kia” saying will go away in the next 5-10 years I believe. I’m looking to get a Stinger Gt1 in blue. Those are sweet!

  • Everyone’s copying Mercedes speakers these days

  • Who would buy this thing over a bmw or Mercedes????

    • If you want something different. Kia makes nice cars.

  • the car looks awsome ,this asshole is dumb

    • Aw, did he insult your overrated Kia. Based on that comment I think we know who the asshole is.

  • So many features you can literally lock yourself out of the system.

  • Luxurious trying too hard on the inside. Let's throw a big cheap badge KIA in the middle of luxury..lol

  • 19:03 it can be just like the stinger. You forgot to put the car in sports mode.

  • The interior kinda reminds me of a Merc

  • 3:50 insane!! o_O

  • i think there are lock button for miss touch during rest or sleeping.

  • You can't tell me that I'll never get laughed at for owning a Kia, no matter how cool it is.

    • They're really not cool.

  • reflective screen has nothing in common with luxury, get back to school KIA and see you in 20 years

  • 6:42 has to be amongst Doug's funniest moments, I can't stop laughing 😂

  • They LEGIT copied a Mercedes interior. Wtf kia

  • dude! you got to dust the dash better when you show close ups... :)

  • THTHTHTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSS

    • +Jack D r u trying to sneeze or what????

    • Huh? I mean..hhhhhhuuuuuuhhhhhh?????

  • I wouldn't even say this car is trying to emulate luxury. By all standards that car IS luxury and quite honestly is pretty impressive coming from KIA. Both Hyundai and KIA have really stepped up their game

  • Why don't we focus on the more important parts of the cars? Like the engine/trans. Etc. It's way more important than the knob on the stereo. Not even sure if Doug has ever showed under a hood.

    • +Jack D well that's good to know. And it's pretty obvious. You must be one those new gens also that thinks the radio is more important on a car than the rear end, or the reliability of the motor.

    • This is how he conducts reviews.

  • Good job Doug! The only thing I wonder is your ironic tone when you are talking about "masterpiece". After all, it's it is made by recognized, famous and swiss brand: Maurica Lacroix.

  • i have a lot of respect for kia now

    • Why?

  • I know what the K900 Is Its an Awesome Automobile

    • hahaha to funny.

  • Just wait until Ford make this kind of vehicles.

  • The Canine hundred? So this car is a dog, you say?

  • Kia is international... Designer office in the 4 difference countries with samsung and LG LG is european

  • Beautiful car to bad it’s a Kia

  • "make an S class, but, cheap and korean"

  • How is the Blind spot cameras any different than Honda's now deceased "Lanewatch"?

    • It's in the gauge cluster and it works for both side.

  • come on Doug obviously the rear self lockout button is made available so that you can sleep in the backseat with your hands placed wherever you want and not risk adjusting things that don't need to be adjusted

  • Does this offer massaging seats full roof moon roof, or changeable interior lighting colors without changing the gauges? How do the quality and features compare to the Continental high end trims? Seems slightly lesser to the Libcoln.

  • Not too far off from a Genesis, but that turn signal feature is definitely next level 💡

  • 65K for a Kia...'nuff said.

  • The console lock is for curious children who like turn twist and push buttons.

  • Can we have more "Doug the grammar/punctuation nazi" on future videos?? Thanks Also, love this car, but I couldn't live with the moustache on the steering wheel!!

  • It a cheap wanna be 2007 S550.... still nice

  • kia has come a very long way!!!! this car is awesome!!!!!! from my experience with cars, this one is really just as good as other models from other manufactures

  • 4:36 doug sounds like a kid

  • i wish there was a law to prevent design stealing, center dash is 100% MB as well as Mercedes speaker grill.

    • Not at all....Center dash is Kia's design, The speaker grille belongs to the speaker company

  • The blue dot is where they press the snap fasteners for the headboard, to prevent scratches

  • good car

  • This is a perfect vehicle for that rich person who wants to keep that identity on a downlow!

  • 1 like 1 punch on doug's face 😂

  • Make sure it has a fire extinguisher.

  • Kia makes a luxury sedan Audi: hold my beer

  • This car is a straight up mix of an S class and BMW 7. Actually it looks like a really cool car! hope it doesnt die off like the phateon

  • KiA bring it to Europe god damn it btw. K900 sounds like the brother of T800

    • Haha they remind me of Kenworth semi truck models

  • Not hating at all. This car is extremely nice, specially the turn signal. That blew my mind. However they have copied Mercedes’ look. I have a Mercedes and the taillights are extremely similar, the climate control buttons, the paddle (they also have the same bubble feeling he’s talking about at 9:04, The speaker set up, ect. Nonetheless, it’s a very nice looking car.

  • Kia is trash

    • They’ve actually come quite far

    • not at all. wonder why you think like that
