    CORRECTION! The K900 is only offered this year with a turbocharged V6, with no V8 option. Big thanks to C&D and Motor Trend for getting this wrong. Last time I rely on them for info!

      Doug, I like your presentations, but I think you were kind of out of line on your pin. Don't blame Car and Driver and Motor Trend. Blame yourself. You were right there at the Kia dealership. You were going to present something to the world, it was completely on you to verify your facts. Car and Driver and Motor Trend will take their own lumps for their own mistakes. You take your lumps for yours. It was your mistake. Yours. Also, you take authority away from yourself by begging at the feet of car magazines for data on new cars. Brother, make a few calls, talk to the dealership people. Look at the online configurators. Being sloppy is one thing, but then doubling down and trying to blame others made it worse. Seriously.

    It's obvious what's the purpose of those blue dots with plastic squares on rear ceiling. To protect the roof from high heels...

    P.S. Excellent luxury car for that amount of money! There were times when I worshiped German cars but no more. I'm owning a Renault and I'm quite satisfied with the reliability considering the price of the car. More people definitely need to open their eyes and start voting with their wallets not just for the brand but for the quality/reliability!

    It's a beautiful car, forget the Doug score. His score means nothing. He just doesn't like KIA. I have 3 KIA's since they were new. Love'em. Wouldn't have any other car. I'm glad people under appreciate them. Otherwise their price would go up.

    this is my first time watching one of Dougs reviews. is he always such an arrogant douchebag? half the time he's making fun of the car without knowing the reasoning behind their decisions.

    I went to a Kia dealership and also an Acura dealership in the past week. I must say, the Kia cars (Optima and Stinger) had better quality interiors than the TLX Aspec and the ILX.

    I see no functional or visual difference between this and a Mercedes, Audi, bmw, Lexus, Volvo, or Infiniti. The only think it needs is a panoramic sunroof. Luxury cars really are priced for a status symbol rather than actual worth.

    Now really Doug, I does it really matter that much that it's a KIA ?...This company is proudly trying very hard to make inroads as a manufacturer of quality motor cars, after all we all have to start somewhere, but it is very hard to make that hurdle when you have reviewers constantly announcing that it's just a KIA and then so therefore i give it a 4. I think its time that they are scored on effort.

    Stumbled upon this car at the LA Auto Show and was blown away. Will definitely consider this when my 5 series lease is up. I hope this will have wireless CarPlay by then. I love having it in the BMW and now can’t imagine not having it.

    The lock on the rear center console is so that you do not get accidental clicks/changes if/when you use the center console as an arm rest. I thought that one should have been quite obvious.

    This car is really sweet for the price point,but since its not a "luxury brand" it'll depreciate like a meteor ,cant wait to see one slightly used for really cheap,will be a very good deal.

    The Genesis G90 does the same thing with the seats in sport mode and the blind spot camera when turning. The screen comes on between the gauge clusters. Rear seating has many of the same features. Doug reviewed the 2019 Genesis G90 on March 13, 2018. Doug, when are you going to review the 2020 Genesis G90?

    Kia and Hyundai close what we saw in back to the future movies. Amazing technology that definitely outsmarts brands like Mercedes, BMW and surprisingly Lexus. But there is still stereotype out there.

    Those odd blue dots are usually quality assurance stickers. As each QA guy checks various things they put a dot on, gives a visual confirmation that certain items have been checked.

    If Kia is going to charge 65k for a vehicle please change that bullshit badge on the vehicle. This vehicle shouldn't be carrying the same badge you would see on a Kia Soul.

    Worthless "review", most of important data is incorrect. The nice clock, from Masterpiece collection of Maurice Lacroix, also has to be bad, since it is NOT in a 4 cylinder CT6 disaster (which has more dumb score than this one). Well done!

    Honda why TF do you only put the lane watch camera on just one side! I don’t care if you charged extra, but I think it should be an option for every Honda!

    I've never been a Kia fan but We bought one of these and love it. It's one of our daily drivers and it's a very comfortable car for long trips. We have taken ours from Oklahoma to new Jersey and from Oklahoma to Nevada and really enjoyed driving this car.
