2015 Kia K900: Great Graphics But Inputs Are Slow [First Impression]

The National Archives building just north of Pennsylvania Avenue looks like the real thing.
The National Archives and the buildings along the National Mall are true to life.

Ever since in-dash GPS units became available on new cars, manufacturers have continually improved graphics and workability. The 2015 Kia K900 is a luxury sedan that doesn’t skimp on interior features, and the GPS unit is one of the best.

Well, almost.

The good thing is that the graphics are clear and bright. The buildings actually look like the real thing, which in a tourist city like Washington DC can be helpful to first-time visitors.

The bad thing is that it’s not a touchscreen. All inputs are done from the rotary dial. Sounds easy but what could be accomplished in 10 seconds via a touchscreen takes at least three times as long using the dial. It’s a little thing, but when you’re running late for an appointment the extra seconds can add up to extra stress.

However, this is a tiny blip in the quality of interior features of the K900. On the whole the cabin is well designed and offers a stunning array of standard features that make this car stand out, especially when compared to the competition.
