On the road with Kia K8

Shereen Shabnam

The United Arab Emirates, with its stunning landscapes, iconic architecture, and vibrant culture, offers a treasure trove of attractions waiting to be explored so when we had a guest in town recently, we embarked on this adventure than behind the wheel of the Kia K8.

This elegant sedan not only delivers an exceptional driving experience but also boasts a range of features that enhance comfort, safety, and entertainment.

As we set out on our journey, the first thing that strikes us is the Kia K8’s bumper-integrated radiator grille. Its moving light patterns, inspired by diamonds, make a bold statement. The sporty fastback body exudes class and sets the tone for our adventure.

The LED DRL and turn signals feature a delicate diamond lattice design, reminiscent of a cluster of floating stars. These not only add to the Kia K8’s aesthetics but also enhance visibility on the road.

A true head turner, the Kia K8’s fastback-type silhouette is a sight to behold. Its sleek side character lines not only convey a beautiful design but also offers a glimpse into a new lifestyle, perfectly suited for our journey through the UAE.

The Y-shaped LED rear combination lamp adds a touch of luxury to the Kia K8’s exterior, creating a defined and eye-catching look as we cruise through the UAE’s iconic streets.

Inside the Kia K8, we are welcomed by a 12.3-inch panoramic curved display in natural wood grain. It exudes sophistication and complements the car’s unique sensibility.

The Kia K8 impresses us further with its 14-speaker Meridian premium sound system. It offers rich, lifelike sound and adjusts according to the vehicle’s speed, ensuring a delightful auditory experience throughout our journey.

The Kia K8 ensures a hassle-free journey with features like a 3-zone climate control system, a large 12.3-inch navigation display, ergonomic Ergo Motion Seats, and hanger-type headrests, making comfort and convenience a priority.

Safety is paramount on our UAE adventure and the Kia K8’s advanced safety features, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Following Assist (LFA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), and Safe Exit Assist (SEA), kept us travelers secure at all times.

The Kia K8’s 3.5-liter gasoline engine provides a powerful driving experience with 300 PS of max power. Its responsive 8-speed automatic transmission ensures a smooth ride, while the electronically controlled suspension guarantees stability even in dynamic driving conditions.

The infotainment and air conditioning controls are high-tech, offering a seamless experience. Features like Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), Surround View Monitor (SVM), a Head-Up Display, and a wireless smartphone charging system kept us connected and informed while on the move.

As we explored the UAE’s iconic attractions in the Kia K8, it was clear that this sedan not only excels in performance but also elevates our journey with its sophistication, comfort, safety, and cutting-edge technology. The Kia K8 is the perfect companion for travelers seeking both adventure and luxury in the stunning landscapes of Dubai and our neighboring Emirates.
