2019 Kia K900 Interior Sketched Out In Official Teaser

Kia continues to tease the new generation K900, with a sketch that opens up its cabin for the first time.

Created in close collaboration between the brand’s global design headquarters in Namyan, Korea, and its US design studio in Irvine, California, like the exterior, the interior of the car is described as offering “a peaceful retreat”.

It has a minimalistic layout, with plenty of soft-touch surfaces, tactile wood and metal veneers, and genuine leather.

The flagship sedan now has fewer buttons on the dashboard, a 12-inch infotainment system, and a digital instrument cluster. Moreover, it also benefits from HMI technology, which uses proximity sensors to illuminate when the driver’s hand reaches for a switch, and an ambient lighting system, with 64 colors and 7 themes to choose from.

Meanwhile, previous teasers gave us a good idea of what we should expect in terms of exterior design: new front and rear ends. Specifically, we’re seeing BMW and Mercedes-like styling at the front and rear, Kia’s signature grille, and large multi-spoke alloys.

Rumored to be underpinned by the same platform as the Stinger and new Genesis sedans, the 2019 Kia K900 might arrive with different V6 and V8 engines, although nothing has been announced yet.

What the Korean automaker has indeed disclosed, is that their new flagship sedan will go on sale in select global markets starting from the second quarter of the year. However, its unveiling will take place earlier than that, probably during the 2018 New York Auto Show, at the end of the month.

    That’s a very nice anime of the interior. PS: Bentley called, and they want their Continental taillight design back.

    • Bash

      Nah, no one called, i see what you mean but they do not the same or even similar..

  • Isam Al Darawsheh

    They mixed the mercedes-benz w221 and w222 interiors together!!

      along with the typical BMW infotainment screen

        Or Honda Accord. They’re basically all the same these days.

        • The new Accord has a very upscale interior…something you would find in a $40K+ European car…

          • PK

            the interior sucks in the new accord! i prefer the new camry’s interior!

          • donald seymour

            Am audible WOW!

          • PK

            good.

          • haudit

            The new Accord’s interior is about as nice as a 2014 Mazda 6.

  • :/ Yurr

    The interior is nice…that steering wheel just looks a lot like the Audi steering wheel.

  • Ermal Morina

    This is basically a mixed match beetwen the 7 series, s class and the a8.

    Personally,not digging it.

  • 31/12/2999

    They need more to take on Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and Lexus.

  • Craig

    The interior is an Audi with some soul. Very nice.

  • roy

    And this is what the current gen 7 series interior should have looked like sans the steering wheel.

  • Mr. Crankypants

    We’ve reached a plauteau of sameness in design…exteriors in the wind tunnel and interiors by ergonomics. Only the “jewelry” and finishes effect distinction.

  • Rot

    Nice work

  • Rot

    7er?
    ???
    Open your eyes…

    Great looking car. Sweet interior. Change the freakin’ badge… It looks like a pimple on the nose of a pretty face. KIA should be proud of their accomplishments but this badge has too much of a link to their economy crap cans of the past. It’s time for an upgrade…

  • SteersUright

    Nice enough? Somewhat…barely. In this day and age of the 2018 A8 and 2019 A6 interiors, this looks like a sketch from 2008, not 2018. Really need to do a serious rethink if its not too late already.

  • FAQMD1

    I like the interior. It is much better than the S Class Buick inspired interior; cleaner design than the BMW 7 series and more functional then the new A8.
