Kia K9 / K900 (RJ) Sedan (2018-2021)

MSRP 59900 USDNeoscore 76%

Product Overview

Kia K9 / K900 (code RJ) is the South Korean automaker's latest take on traditional full-size luxury sedan in production between 2018 to 2021, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with V6 and V8 engines that displaced 3.3 to 5.0 liters.
Owners will probably enjoy the powerful naturally-aspirated V8 the most. Unfortunately, it was no longer available in RWD form.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Kia K9 II comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
