Kia's new K900 sedan has a Swiss analogue clock, looks much better

Kia Motors, sister company to South Korean auto giant Hyundai Motor, has started preorders of all new K9, the largest model of its signature K-series here, with an aim to sell 20,000 units a year, the company said Tuesday.

The bodywork is high-strength steel while the new platform hugging the Kia K900 sees the sedan stretching its wheelbase to 3,105 mm (122.2 in), which is 60 mm (2.3 inches) longer than its predecessor.

Visually-speaking, the K900 is the product of Kia's design headquarters in Namyang, Korea and its other studio in Irvine, California.

The new Kia K900 follows a new design language and grows bigger in size over the outgoing vehicle.

In terms of safety features, Kia Motors officials said the new K9 is equipped with some of the most cutting-edge technology. Front and rear wheel overhangs shrink, pushing the wheels farther out the car's corners, which helps improve ride quality and free up space inside.

Meanwhile, headlight and taillight graphics are very similar, the wheels feature a 10 twin-spoke design and the profile gains a design element similar in shape to a paddle - the BMW 7-Series is rocking one of those too, albeit more of a hockey stick.

Inside the minimalist theme continues with a more refined and luxurious cabin that wraps around the driver. Flowing from the center of the dash and outwards to the doors, surfaces are trimmed in a sophisticated combination of materials, with soft-touch surfaces, a blend of highly tactile wood and metal veneers, and genuine leather throughout the interior.

There is a pair of 12.3-inch digital screens from which one is the main instrument cluster and another is the infotainment hub.

Enclosed in the centre of the dashboard will be an analogue clock, designed specifically for the new limousine by Swiss luxury watch brand, Maurice Lacroix.

The all-new 2019 Kia K900 has broken cover ahead of its reveal later this month. Drivers can also choose from 64 unique settings to adapt light levels throughout the auto.
