Built with one purpose in mind: to be a tremendously hard working and rugged workhorse. 2010 sees the Kia K2900 purely purpose built for carrying heavy loads for the tradesperson – even the farmer.
The middle seat has a fold down back which has a handy couple of cup-holders and a storage compartment for paper, invoice books, pens and what have you. Decent sized door pockets can also hold a wealth of useful documents. The flip down sides on the rear deck make for easy loading, allowing the new K2900 to be extremely versatile as a flat deck. It’s deceptive just how long the deck is! The entire length of the vehicle is almost 5.2 metres, and you can carry loads of nearly two tonnes in weight over the rear axle. A handy towing weight of 1.4 tonnes for a braked trailer makes this a superior trade vehicle.
Powered with a 2.9-litre DOHC diesel you have a hefty 245 Nm available from as low as 1500 rpm.
You can order the Kia K2900 in either marine blue or white.
Looking for a robust, hardworking and grunty light-weight truck that can do the business on any building site? If this is you, or you have similar requirements, then the Kia K2900 has the genes.
With its good looks, dynamic performance and attention to detail the Kia K2900 CRDi sets a new standard for light trucks. The development concept was based around giving the worker a “better day at the office”. Unlike many other work vehicles, the K2900 offers easy operation and a quiet, unperturbed driving experience.
You can escape into the K2900 and know that the drive will be comfortable, roomy and well equipped. The cloth trim is soft and hard wearing. A digital clock helps keep your day in synch, while the seating proves to be relaxing and supportive. There is the sliding, and reclining driver’s seat, which is very user friendly. Height adjustable headrests are on offer too. There are power windows, a tilt adjustable steering wheel, tinted glass, air conditioning and a crisp sounding AM/FM Radio/CD with two speakers as well.
Turning tight corners is a breeze – thanks to the Kia K2900 being equipped with a heavy duty power-steering unit. On the road, the truck remains grippy and taut in the handling department, and this makes the drive, to and from work, an enjoyable experience – not a wallowing, harsh, side-drifting jitter.
Kia boast some of the world’s best diesel engines, and they have picked up numbers of awards. The CRDi engine is paired with a sophisticated and reliable RT-10 five-speed manual transmission for smooth and precise gear shifting. And with a 2.9 litre, turbo inter-cooled diesel with DOHC, Common rail (Delphi) technology it rates as one of the cleanest burning and gruntiest motors in its class. The 92 kW of maximum power comes into its own at a very accessible 3800 rpm, and with 245 Nm of torque from as low as 1500 rpm all the way through to 3250 rpm business has never looked better.
The tray-deck is superbly tough and practical, with a height of just 775 mm. Loading the deck is not as hard as you think. With 3110 mm x 1630 mm to play around with, sizeable loads can be carried. Versatile? Yes. You can carry loads up to a whopping 1500 kg.
So pop that drink of yours in a Kia K2900 drink holder and get down to business. The Kia K2900 is made to impress, and you’ll enjoy Kia’s fantastic five year, 130000 kilometre warranty that applys to any commercial, fleet, government or rental K2900. Go get yourself one!
