2019 Kia Sorento 2019 Kia K900

Starting as the humble producers of bicycle parts and steel tubing in Seoul, Kia’s legacy has unfolded into a complex cornucopia

reminiscent of a primetime television drama— more than 70 years of strategic launches, and cunning partnerships brought Kia to the fore of the international automotive industry today.

Kia has distinguished itself as a brand con- cerned with reliable, a ordable vehicles for the average commuter or enthusiast alike. Today, re- cent developments have been just as exciting, such as Kia’s e-Niro being considered a successful step into the electric car market, or the Soul and Rio

winning the 2019 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy awards. However, most notable is Kia’s latest gas-engine releases: the 2019 Kia Sorento and the 2019 Kia K900. The 2019 Sorento—a powerful, spacious mid-size SUV—hopes to nd success in the North American market, where the Sorento is Kia Canada’s bestseller. The 2019 K900—a agship luxury sedan—made waves with its national introduction back in September of last year. Both have received major upgrades

to help them compete in their respective markets, as well as some sweet extras thrown in. Without a doubt, the Sorento and K900 represent the pin- nacle of Kia tech and design.

2019 Sorento

A seven-seater, one of the biggest mid-size SUVs
and with a 25 combined MPG, the Sorento is » great for long trips or short commutes. The 2019 Sorento is available in five trim levels LX, the EX, the SX, and the SXL. While the first two tiers stand perfectly well on their own— 185 horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, respectable gas mileage, and great pricing—the subsequent level, the EX, is the better price for performance. At EX, the Sorento gets a stronger 290 horsepower, 3.3-liter V-6 engine, as well as

a handful of luxury features like heated seats; and the Dynamax All-Wheel Drive with Torque Vectoring Cornering Control (optional). This fresh heap of newspeak refers to the various sen- sors and motors hidden throughout the Sorento, which react and respond to road conditions in real-time. The SX and SXL tiers are for more discerning drivers, and add countless features— the ritziest of them all belonging to the SXL. A selection of nine exterior colors and four interior colors are available for all tiers except the base L model.

2019 K900

The K900 returns to Kia’s 2019 lineup after a brief hold of production. The K900 has always been the biggest demonstrator of Kia’s priorities, which are quality, value and practical design. Before the reveal of the 2019 K900, many in

the auto industry held their breath, expecting that the hiatus weakened the K900 line. There was nothing to fear—the new 2019 K900 keeps the pricing, and the premium quality, that the previous years’ models o ered before it. The 2019 model also keeps the look and feel of a

premium sedan, such as the signature headlamp pattern, an analog clock, and a sharp, stylish front grille. Inside, a 3.3-liter, 365 horsepower V-6 engine—an incredibly uncommon amount of power inside a car priced like the K900. But, the most amazing part of the K900 is its relation to another, sportier Kia ride, the Stinger. Shar- ing the same architecture, and even the same creative talent (former BMW engineer, Albert

Biermann, played a big part in the K900’s de- sign), the new 2019 K900 has some critics calling it the Stinger’s more composed older brother.
At this point, what’s clear is that the K900 is no pretender—it’s real luxury with real power.
