In with the New: Introducing the Kia K5

For two decades, Kia impressed midsize sedan customers and shoppers with the Optima, which combined attractive styling, great driving feel, and loads of standard tech. Kia is now drawing the curtains on the impressive Optima and introducing its latest midsize sedan offering: the K5. It’s an even more visually imposing ride than its predecessor with a long profile, sharp lines and edges, a silver-finished front grille, and standard 16-inch alloy wheels. The K5 is available in LX, LX-S, GT-Line, and EX trim levels.


This brand-new midsize sedan is powered by an equally brand-new engine, which Kia calls the Smartstream. With a turbocharger and a displacement of 1.6 liters, this 4-cylinder engine outputs at 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque for more-than-adequate acceleration ability. The engine is relatively small, and it includes idle-stop technology to eliminate unnecessary fuel consumption when at a complete stop. Consequently, fuel economy is remarkable, with an estimation of 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The Smartstream is pinned to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which provides smooth shifting due to the relatively large number of gears. Although front-wheel drive is standard, you can go with the LXS or the GT-Line if you prefer an all-wheel drivetrain for optimizing traction on slippery surfaces.


Entertainment on the Kia K5 is top-notch due to a combination of several features. These features include a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system, HD Radio for digital tuning, Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and an 8-inch touchscreen. There’s also a USB port for playing media from your mobile device and another to charge it. Thanks to remote keyless entry, you can unlock the vehicle with just the press of a key fob button. Separate climate controls are on the driver and front-passenger side to allow both occupants to individualize heating and cooling.

At the LXS trim level, Kia improves access by just requiring that you have your key fob on you, and a push button replaces the ignition next to the steering wheel for more convenient engine-starting. Two charging-only USB ports are added in the rear at the GT-Line trim level. The EX alone has wireless phone charging ability, a trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio service, and UVO link remote connectivity for executing certain vehicle functions such as heating and cooling the cabin, locking and unlocking the doors, and locate where the vehicle is parked using the Kia Access app.

Safety Features

To help prevent crashes, Kia provides forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, automatic high-beam technology, and a rearview mirror with dynamic parking guidance as standard features. However, if a crash does occur, seven airbags are on standby to deploy if necessary. Other standard safety features include electronic stability control and traction control to keep you in control within your lane of travel, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes for optimal stopping power and performance, hill start assist control to safely drive upwards, and rear occupant alert to verify that no one is left behind when leaving the vehicle. If you go with the LXS, Kia adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert for enhanced driver assistance, as well as a safe exit assist alert to warn passengers of approaching vehicles when getting out. Only the EX has a reverse parking distance warning system.
