2016 Acura RLX vs. 2016 Kia K900 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RLX offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia K900 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
The Acura RLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia K900, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia K900. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX will cost more in transportation costs than the Kia K900.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Kia K900. The Acura RLX is slightly shorter than the Kia K900, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura RLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia K900.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the Kia K900, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Acura RLX and the Kia K900.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Kia K900. The Acura RLX has less cargo capacity than the Kia K900, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura RLX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K900.
