The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Kia K900 reaches for the luxury stars--and grabs a little Lexus and old-school Cadillac, though it falls well short of Audi. The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
