- KIA previews interior design for new flagship luxury sedan
- Wrap-around cabin design with sophisticated combination of materials
- Minimalist interior with advanced in-car technologies and new Human Machine Interface (HMI)
(SEOUL) 15 March 2018 – KIA Motors has previewed the interior design of the all-new K900 flagship luxury sedan in a sketch released today.
Like the exterior, the cabin of the new K900 has been created in close collaboration between KIA’s global design headquarters in Namyang, Korea and the brand’s U.S. design studio in Irvine, California. Elegant by design, and with a minimalist layout, the interior of the new K900 provides the driver and passengers with a peaceful retreat in which to spend time.
KIA has created a refined and luxurious cabin which wraps around the driver, enhancing the sense of being cocooned from the outside world. Flowing from the centre of the dash and outwards to the doors, surfaces are trimmed in a sophisticated combination of materials, with soft-touch surfaces, a blend of highly tactile wood and metal veneers, and genuine leather throughout the interior.
The minimalist interior of the K900 features new HMI screens and advanced in-car technologies, such as a new intelligent lighting control system and chromotherapy ambient mood lighting. The K900’s 12,3-inch HMI screen is integrated in such a way as to enhance a sense of calm and serenity on-board. 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.
Drivers can also adapt the cabin of the new K900 to personal preferences with a new mood lighting system. Customizable on the move, subtle ambient lighting floods the interior in one of 64 colours and seven themes, the glow of the lights creating a truly contemporary ambience.
The all-new Kia K900 will be manufactured in Korea and will go on sale across selected global markets from the second quarter of 2018.
