Default K900 in black

Guys, I didn't see K900 in black yet. All commercial for K9/Quoris in black color ... Sometimes white.... But K900 mostly in white...
So far real test drive shows K900 in white, silver or dark gray.

Do you have any thoughts why KIA ignoring the most common color for luxury segment?
Is it just to distinguish it form other? Avoid direct comparison? Or K900 is better looking in white?

What do you think?

I think that KIA may only have a couple of pre production testers that are being shuttled around. I also think it could be a subtle marketing thing. Showing it in white signifies the K900 is fresh and pure. Hero association perhaps... Knight in shining Armour... all those cliches..

I just saw the K900 on display at an event in Toronto this past weekend. It was also in dark grey. I thought that the K900 looked really nice. You could tell that its nice and that it is aiming for the likes of BMW and Benz. I think people will have to get used to the idea of Kia being a luxury brand, but once that happens this car should stack up to the Germans nicely. Better than Acura is doing at least.

thats what I'm saying. Black has always been the preference of Mercedes especially. KIA seems to be saying we came to play the game but not on your terms.

Or its a nod to nouveau riche, they all drive white

We'll eventually see Black, i'll be very surprised if we don't see one before production starts, as others have mentioned it's a must when it comes to luxury sedays.
