Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RLX offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia K900. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the Kia K900, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 and the Kia K900 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is a little narrower than the Kia K900, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia K900.

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Kia K900, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
The Acura RLX has less horsepower than the Kia K900, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.

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