Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fully redesigned for 2019.Standard turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive.More upscale interior materials.Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.Part of the second K900 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Interior materials are much nicer than those in previous model
Even fully loaded K900s undercut rivals by many thousands of dollars
Spacious trunk space

Cons
Turn-by-turn navigation gives too many traffic alerts

If you’re reading this and saying, “I didn't know Kia made a luxury sedan,” you’re not alone. The K900 is a muscular four-door stuffed with leather, wood trim, and tech all as standard. The base engine is a 311-hp V-6; a 420-hp V-8 is optional. The steering is numb and the suspension is soft. Kia wants buyers to think the K900 is a value compared with its pricier competitors, but we’d rather spend less for a car that is more about driving than gadgets. An all-new K900 goes on sale in late 2018.

Pros
A vast improvement compared to the previous model,
competent driving dynamics,
unquestionable value.

Cons
Owners may suffer from brand envy,
interior is derivative,
doesn’t excel in any single area.

The 2019 Kia K900 brooms some of its big chrome, and ups the ante with twin-turbo power.

Pros
Less stuffy style
Thrusty twin-turbo V-6
More interior space
More standard safety tech
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Styling drama lives entirely inside
More old-school luxe than sporty

The 2019 Ford Taurus Sedan comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.

Pros
Rides comfortably and quietly on the highway
The giant trunk is one of the roomiest in the large sedan class
Available all-wheel drive for enhanced wet-weather traction

Cons
Skimpy list of standard features on base SE model
Performance SHO model lacks the punch of big-engine rivals
Feels slow and ponderous when driving around turns
The interior doesn't seem as airy or spacious as it should
