First Look at the 2021 Kia K5
Looking to reinvigorate your drive in a new sedan? Keep an eye out for the first-ever Kia K5 going on sale at our Portland area Kia dealership this summer with a starting MSRP of $23,490.
What Is The Kia K5?
Set to fill the shoes of the outgoing Kia Optima, the 2021 Kia K5 marks Kia’s most powerful mid-size sedan ever. In a time where SUVs dominate the road, Kia decided to completely rethink the traditional sedan with head-turning design, stirring powertrain options, and a plethora of technology.
A Daring, New Design Identity
The first thing you will likely notice about this exciting new sedan is its bold looks. Characterized by an angular design language, the 2021 Kia K5 carries a “tiger face” with a wide front grille reaching into the headlight and hood structure followed by a low-slung fastback silhouette.
From behind the wheel, the 2021 Kia K5 implements an open cockpit layout with a newly designed infotainment display that extends into the instrument panel for a futuristic, three-dimensional space.
More Turbo, More Traction
Under the hood, the 2021 Kia K5 packs a 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine making 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque tuned to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission. Shoppers have the option to add the available all-wheel drive to increase all-weather capability.
For truly sporty performance in your K5, the available 2.5-liter turbocharged GDI + MPI four-cylinder delivers 290 horsepower and 311 lb.-ft. of torque. Further establishing its sport credentials, this powertrain pairs with an 8-speed “wet” Dual Clutch Transmission for near-immediate gear shifts.
Tech To Match
Sticking to our habit of filling vehicles to the brim with technology, the 2021 Kia K5 comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen programmed for wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ – a first for Kia – as well as remote engine start and available wireless smartphone charging.
For your peace of mind, the Kia K5 also standardizes safety through features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Lane Following Assist, among the long list of standard and available safety technologies.
