The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
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 Lexus LS is all about build quality and comfort for the long-haul, though its F Sport trim dials up the fun factor slightly.
