A Quick Look at Kia Motors K900, Sedona and Optima Hybrid – #KiaDriveFL

Kia Motors Car Collage

I had the opportunity to check out three Kia vehicles while in Orlando, FL for the Monkey Kingdom press event.

I was picked up at the airport in the luxurious K900, and I was in for a treat.  Being from California I am not used to the humidity of Florida and needless to say I was feeling hot.

I jumped in the backseat of the K900 and the driver told me about the ventilated rear seats.  It felt great to have cool air surrounding my body so I could cool off quickly.

The K900 offers a rear seat center controls so the back seat passengers have complete control over these options. Kia K900 Airport Pick up - Interior

We loved using the navigation system and it got us there without any troubles. I sat in the back seat and it was comfortable and I had a lot of leg room.

I was really excited to take a drive with in the Kia Sedona with five of my friends.  I drive a mini-van and I wanted to see how the Sedona compared to my current vehicle.

I was able to sit in the middle seat on the way to the event and loved all of the features available in that area of the car.  The charging port is what I found to be useful.  My kids would love this feature since they are always using their electronics while we are on the road.

I also took advantage of the recline and foot rest feature of the seats, this is a very nifty feature and Kia sure has passenger comfort in mind with this feature.

I was able to get a seat in the last row seating of the vehicle and felt like I had enough room and there was still room for cargo in the back.

I really liked the time I spent riding in the Kia cars, I had not been in one before.

My husband and I  will soon be looking into getting a new vehicle soon as my husband’s 97 Honda Accord just hit 200,000 miles.  We will certainly add the Kia line of vehicles to our search for our next vehicle.
