St. Louis K900s at Jim Butler Kia Keep Pace with Luxury European Brands

Robb Report ranks impressive KIA K900 among 2015 Car of the Year finalists

The 2015 KIA K900 continues to prove its worth in the luxury sedan segment with its latest mention and honor. The K900 — available exclusively in St. Louis at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley — ranked among Robb Report’s 2015 Car of the Year finalists.

However, making the Robb Report list is not the same as making a Kelley Blue Book list or Consumer Reports. Robb Report is a magazine publication that reports on "connoisseurship for ultra-affluent consumers" As the KIA K900 makes the list on a publication geared toward more affluent lifestyles, it shows how far the KIA brand and, specifically, the K900 have progressed in such a short time.

KIA recently topped luxury European brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW in Consumer Reports rankings, and as a Robb Report finalist, it shows the K900 can keep pace with the grandest of luxury offerings.

How the K900 Impressed the Robb Report Judges

The KIA K900 was dubbed a "dark horse" by the Robb Report panel. Admittedly, they "questioned" KIA’s place in competition, but the K900 soon showed why it belongs in the same discussion as Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

The K900’s amenities and performance stood out to the judges as Robb Report said they "rival those of the big sedans from Audi, Jaguar Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and BMW." They also were impressed by the nearly half-price cost of the K900 compared to its European counterparts — and that price includes the 10-year powertrain warranty.

"The [K900] also looks right at home when parked next to the latest Euro-luxury crop," Robb Report said.

A 5.0-liter V8 and its 420 HP powers the RWD Kia K900. This engine is mated with a smooth 8-speed transmission. The car’s finish is about the same as that of luxury European models, and the ranking among Robb Report’s top cars of the year show that KIA is now a formidable brand in the luxury segment.
