2019 Kia K900 First Look: Tasteful Minimalism Full-size luxury sedan brings turbocharged power, tech overload The second-generation 2019 Kia K900 made its global debut at the 2018 New York auto show, and it sports a less coupe-like exterior design and an interior that’s restrained yet tasteful. Designed as a collaborative effort between Kia’s Korean and U.S. design studios, the 2019 K900 is longer than its predecessor and features unique design cues such as a tiger nose grille featuring 176 jewel-like cells that create a ripple effect. Its headlights and taillights sport a new duplex pattern to give it more presence and to show off its wide stance. Chrome trim around the exhaust tips, windows, grille, and above the side skirts complement the standard 19-inch alloy wheels, which are also finished in a bright chrome look. Inside the 2019 K900 features a minimalist cabin with a large floating 12.3-inch touchscreen as its centerpiece. Leather upholstery comes standard and you can upgrade to higher quality Nappa leather. Available interior colors include black, beige, Espresso Brown, and two-tone Sienna Brown, and they’re complemented with one of four types of open pore matte wood trim. Heated and ventilated front seats come standard with the driver’s side featuring 20-way adjustability while the passenger has 12. You can also option for heated and ventilated rear seats with 12- and 14-way adjustability for the driver and passenger’s side respectively. Additionally, the 2019 K900 is also available with multi-zone climate controls that allow rear passengers to set their own temperature. Kia’s UVO infotainment system comes standard with navigation and a new UVO Luxe app specific to the 2019 K900 that allows owners to remotely start, change the temperature, and locate their car from a mobile device. Instead of a traditional gauge cluster, the K900 comes with a customizable 12.3-inch instrument cluster display and can be paired with the optional 9.7-inch head-up display. A 17-speaker Harman Kardon/Lexicon audio system will also be available and it features selectable modes including Stereo, On Stage, and Audience. The 2019 K900 will also feature an ambient lighting system that has a choice of 64 colors with seven special ones made in collaboration with the Pantone Color Institute. A full suite of active driver assistance features will be offered on the 2019 Kia K900 including lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and driver attention warning. Rear automatic emergency braking, lane follow assist, and safe exit assist are new additions to Kia’s advanced driver assistance suite. The car’s blind spot warning system has been enhanced with blind spot view monitor that shows you what’s in your left or right blind spot. A 360-degree camera system will also be available. Powering the 2019 K900 is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque paired to a second-generation eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring comes standard on the K900 and can send up to 50 percent of torque to the front wheels in Normal model. In Sport mode, the system is rear-biased and sends 80 percent of torque to the rear wheels. The 420-hp 5.0-liter V-8 and rear-wheel drive will no longer be offered on the K900. Development of the second generation 2019 Kia K900 was done under the direction of Albert Biermann, president of Vehicle Test and High Performance Development for the entire Hyundai Motor Group. Biermann says the aim for the 2019 K900 was to achieve what he calls “confident comfort,” which is to focus on a comfortable ride while preserving drivability and steering precision. Compared to its predecessor, the 2019 K900 has a strengthened chassis with improved rigidity and superior front and rear lateral stiffness thanks to 676 feet of structural adhesives, up from to 279 feet in the outgoing model. Torsional stiffness has been improved by 33 percent, which should make the 2019 K900 feel more planted and solid on the road. Kia improved aerodynamics on the K900 by using full underbody panels, air curtains on the wheel wells, and an active air flap to smooth out air flow, resulting in a 0.27 drag coefficient. Additional sound deadening material and an acoustic film on the windshield and front side mirrors help improve NVH. For improved handling, the suspension has been redesigned with a new front geometry to tighten the K900’s turn-ins and improve stability. An electronically controlled suspension system will be available in the 2019 K900 and it helps reduce chassis movement and wheel load variations. Wheel acceleration sensors help detect imperfections and can modulate the car’s suspension according to the road surface.

Toyota’s Yaris 2018 is entering into the space dominated by stalwarts like Honda segment defining City 2018, Hyundai’s stylish Verna and Maruti Suzuki’s spacious and sensible Ciaz. On our first drive of the Yaris we found that this Toyota is packing in something extra to take on the competition. The features list of the Toyota Yaris includes many segment firsts, like a roof mounted AC with ambient lighting, 7 airbags as standard, front parking sensors and a 60:40 split rear seat for improved practicality. It also lays heavy impetus on the experience of luxury by employing premium trim and upholstery, while pairing these elements with finer touches like heat and noise insulating glass. Toyota’s are about reliability and dependability, and for that alone some people will gravitate towards the Yaris. This will play a major role in the success of the Yaris, since the Yaris sedan is a petrol only car. There are no plans to launch a Yaris diesel, with the dwindling demand for diesel cited as the reason by Toyota. The safety equipment levels on the Yaris fortify this faith further. The Yaris deserves to be looked at seriously by midsize sedan buyers as it makes for a calm commuter and capable all rounder. However, if Toyota price the Yaris neck and neck with the Honda City, between 9 and 14 lakhs, the Yaris would prove to be the luxury pick in the segment that despite its shortcomings would stand out as the luxury pick of the segment.

Shop the new Hyundai Accent: https://cargur.us/lRgYJ Hyundai’s 2018 Accent is a cost-effective sedan with an unbeatable warranty but not a lot of thrills or luxury. The redesigned Accent is no longer available in hatchback form, takes some visual cues from larger Hyundais, and looks more upscale than past versions, but it’s still a totally practical option available at a great price. Our reviewer recommends some features available only to premium trims, but even the flagship Limited has an MSRP of less than $19K. All Accents use a 130-hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder with 119 lb-ft of torque redesigned to improve efficiency and power in the city. A 6-speed manual is available only in the base trim, with all others using a 6-speed automatic our reviewer found slow in responding to input. The Accent packs 90 cubic feet of passenger space, putting it into competition with compacts, rather than subcompacts, and while every Accent includes Bluetooth and a reversing camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available only to the SEL and Limited.

For the 2018 model year the Hyundai Accent has been redesigned both inside and out. This 5th generation model is priced at $14,995 for the base SE trim up to $18,895 for the Limited trim. The subcompact sedan class is pretty tight for 2018 with competition like the: Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, Mitsubishi Mirage G4, Nissan Versa, Toyota Yaris iA, and the Kia Rio. Under the hood is a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 28 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. The redesigned 2018 Hyundai Accent is a splendid little sedan that feels larger than it is. The low starting price of under $15k is attractive but it’s the well-equipped Limited model that if worth the added cost. The 100k mile warranty makes your commute worry free.

The 2018 Hyundai Accent is all new, and brings a big feature list to the small car segment To see how far the automotive industry has truly come in the past ten years, drive a small car. No, not an electric city car or a pint-sized performance rocket, but your average, everyday subcompact economy car. Ten years ago a well-equipped small car came with AM/FM radio with a CD player (!), power windows, height adjustable seats, and perhaps even power locks with a key fob remote. Those kinds of things wouldn’t even make it into a press release these days. 0 19 0 The 2018 Hyundai Accent takes things to an entirely different level again for subcompact ‘economy’ cars, but it’s not just the long list of features, it’s the types of features and the total impression they make in a car that has more presence than its small footprint would suggest and a cabin that is modern and well executed. At the heart of it is a touchscreen infotainment system on a seven-inch display, a system that is brilliant for its simplicity and effectiveness. Press an icon or one of the fixed buttons around the screen and something happens right away, no waiting, no delay, no frustration. That is a luxury I could get used to. 0 19 0 That seven-inch screen is optional, and a smaller five-inch screen is standard, but it’s still a far cry from the pencil-thin digital readouts most affordable cars used to have. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included with all but the base model SE, making your entertainment and communication controls even more familiar and seamless. The touchscreen will likely be the center of attention for entertainment, but your attention should be on the road first, and that is easy with the Accent. The 2018 Accent is one of the most undemanding cars I’ve driven in ages. 0 19 0 Everything is straightforward and familiar, and although the small 1.6-liter four-cylinder only makes 130 hp and 119 lb-ft of torque, and while less powerful than its predecessor, that is generous for this class and the car weighs 2,679 pounds at most (2,502 with the manual transmission), so it gets going from stoplights with decent pep. However, the more speeds climb, the more it struggles, and it’s not a car you’d call fast, especially with the six-speed automatic transmission we drove. The manual might give you a bit more jump, but the automatic is also seamless, with a conventional shifter that will take no time to get used to, and would make the commute a breeze. 0 19 0 The manual used to always be the frugal option with a lower cost of entry and lower running costs, but the automatic now holds a slight edge in efficiency. The EPA rates the automatic at 28 mpg in city driving, 38 on the highway and 32 combined, with the manual transmission one mpg less efficient in both highway and combined. During my week of suburban shuttling and family duty, we averaged an okay but not great 27.7 mpg, although one highway drive yielded a decent 35 mpg. The 1.6 is the o
