Kia EV9 Redefines the Future of SUVs with Space and Cutting-Edge Technology

As someone who’s always on the lookout for the latest advancements in automotive technology, I’m thrilled to share my insights on the new Kia EV9. It is set to reshape the way we drive, blending innovative EV technology with the spaciousness and style of an SUV. Let’s dive into what makes the Kia EV9 a game-changer.

Check out the Kia EV9 features I enjoyed in this short video!

Firstly, the Kia EV9 boasts a striking exterior that’s hard to miss. Its upright windshield and large windows with 2 sunroofs flood the interior with natural light, creating an airy and bright ambience. It operates on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), compatible with both 400V and 800V chargers for versatile and fast recharging.

The EV9 comes in a variety of exterior body colours, and this is Ivory silver. It has 19-inch aerodynamic wheels that enhance its bold look. Inside, the GT-line offers luxurious touches like small cube projection headlamps, auto flush door handles, and a 14-speaker Meridian Premium Sound System.

Inside, the EV9 offers spacious comfort for up to six people, accommodating both passengers and their belongings with ease. Despite its high and wide shoulders, the EV9’s aerodynamic design works tirelessly to reduce wind resistance, showcasing how it defies typical EV physics.

I appreciate how each seat in both the second and especially the third row does not have their space compromised, and still gets to enjoy the full suite of features like charging and having cup holders.

With a flat floor and broad-shouldered frame, Kia’s designers had the freedom to innovate seating and cargo arrangements. The three-row configuration can be customized with features like second-row swivel seats, which rotate 180° for more intimate interaction with third-row occupants, or relaxation seats that recline at the touch of a button, providing countless ways to unwind.

The Kia EV9 is packed with advanced features designed to enhance convenience and safety. The centre console includes an armrest, mobile phone charging pad, and storage areas.

On the topic of storage, the front trunk offers an additional 52 litres of space. The last 2 rows of seats can also be fully declined to become flat. This is extremely useful if I need additional space to transport big items, or if I want to go camping in my car! I appreciate how versatile the car is to suit my needs.

Kia has integrated state-of-the-art technology to keep me connected and safe on the road. The panoramic display and intuitive touchscreen allow me to easily navigate between driver information, settings, and entertainment. It is one of the most responsive touch screens I’ve tested in a car! The head-up display for the driver also projects vital driving information onto the windshield.

Safety is paramount in the EV9, with over 20 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) ensuring I stay alert and in control. Features like Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Lane Following Assist are just a few of the technologies working together to protect me and my passengers.

The Kia EV9 is for those who want an SUV that combines spacious comfort with cutting-edge technology, all while paving the way for a more sustainable future. The EV9 is here to inspire and redefine what’s possible in the world of electric vehicles.

The Kia EV9 retails at $289,999 (without COE).
