Like the exterior, the cabin of the new K900 (known as the K9 in South Korea), has been a product of close collaboration between Kia’s global design headquarters in Namyang, South Korea and the brand’s U.S. design arm in California.
The cabin has been sculptured to wrap around the driver, featuring soft-touch materials, tactile wood, metal veneers and leather upholstery.For some reason, looking at this interior, BMW and Mercedes-Benz comes to mind. There’s something about the new 12.3-inch Human Machine Interface (HMI) screen that resembles that of BMW’s and the clean, minimalist appearance of the upholstery that strikes similarities with that of the Mercedes-Benz S400h. The K900’s interior also features a new intelligent lighting control system and chromotherapy ambient mood lighting.
The HMI’s intelligent lighting control uses proximity sensors, only illuminating when it detects the driver’s hand reaching for a switch on the dash. The ambient lighting in the new K900 can also be customisable with 64 colours and seven themes. The all-new Kia K900 will be manufactured in South Korea and will go on sale across selected global markets from the second quarter of 2018.
