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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Comfortable seats
Visibility
Handling and acceleration
Relatively affordable (WRX)
Highway poise

Cons
CVT operation in most situations
Small trunk
Sound quality of standard stereo

The 2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI trade eye-catching design for breathtaking performance on a variety of road surfaces.

Pros
Strong performance...
… in just about any conditions
Impressive safety record
Good infotainment system
Subtle design

Cons
Perhaps too subtle looking
A hatchback would be nice
Dated interior feel
Rivals offer more power for money

By:

Come rain or shine — or even snow — the 2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI deliver speedy acceleration and engaging handling. These compact sport sedans aren't as quiet or refined as their competitors, but you won't find sport sedans with more power and all-wheel drive for less money.

Pros
In both the WRX and WRX STI, acceleration is swift and among best-in-class
Delivers superb handling and steering response on twisting roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety equipment options

Cons
Excessive wind and road noise
Interior quality lags behind competitors
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride
