Buyers are getting an extra incentive to invest in the 2016 model year of the Kia K900. The luxury sedan is receiving an exclusive version of the company’s UVO Luxury Services, a recently-announced next-generation of Kia’s infotainment and telematics system. The services will include functions ranging from LTE connectivity to remote vehicle command and control to making local Google searches.
The UVO system in the K900 includes an app that can be downloaded from iTunes or Google Play, which will allow owners of the vehicle to start and stop the car from their phone, turn on the heating and cooling system remotely, and lock or unlock the doors. What’s more is that even if you let your teen borrow the K900 for the night, you can even track their location and restrict them to certain areas, speed limits, and give them a curfew. The K900’s UVO Luxury Services will include a lot more than that as well, even going so far as to allow drivers to make dealership service appointments from the comfort of their vehicle.
Other features range from Roadside Assist to Automatic and Manual Diagnostics to Driving Information and more. Many amenities available through the telematics suite are also available in the My Car Zone menu in the UVO eServices smartphone app. The UVO system will be available for free for the first five years of ownership as well, with a subscription kicking in only after that grace period has ended.
Other standard conveniences on the 2016 Kia K900 besides UVO Luxury Services include integrated navigation, a panoramic sunroof, and even leather-appointed seating. There’s also an available smart trunk feature that automatically sense the key fob once within a certain distance, as well as an available V8 engine model with 19-inch chrome alloy wheels.
