Kia K5 Performance

The Kia K5 finds internal motivation in a responsive and efficient 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 180 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Power runs to the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, all-wheel drive is available with the GT Line trim for drivers seeking improved handling and four-season control.

Looking for something a little more invigorating? The K5 GT unlocks the sedan's true performance potential with a 2.5-liter turbo-four (290 hp, 311 lb-ft), a Quick Shift dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters, and sport-tuned suspension.

Kia K5 Design and Accommodations

The K5's racy styling stands out in the segment, exhibiting a sport coupe-like profile, a signature "Tiger Nose" grille, and assertively-narrowed headlight clusters flanked by chicane-style turn signals. On the inside, the K5 is spacious and inviting, with modern design details, plentiful passenger room, and nicely cushioned and supportive seats providing long-distance comfort. The K5 is impressively practical for a sedan, with a large 16-cubic-foot trunk and standard 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks.

The K5 offers numerous comfort and convenience enhancements, including standard equipment like proximity entry, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and rear USB ports. Available amenities include heated and ventilated front seats, simulated or leather upholstery, driver memory, and a panoramic sunroof.

Infotainment and Safety

The K5 makes it easy to stay connected, find directions, and enjoy your favorite playlists while on the go. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate common smartphone features with the standard 8-inch display. But step up just one trim level to the K5 GT-Line, and you'll get a larger 10.25-inch Navigation display, plus Kia Connect, allowing you to remotely unlock the doors, start the engine, and even set climate controls from your compatible smartphone.

While nothing can take the place of staying alert behind the wheel, the Kia K5 offers a comprehensive suite of Kia Drive Wise advanced safety features to augment your attentive driving and support a more confident and convenient drive. No matter which tier you choose, you'll get standard driving aids like:

  • Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Lane Following Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (monitoring and intervention)
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (alert with automatic braking)
