But before we get into the nitty-gritty details of the 2021 Kia K5, read about how this new sedan differs from the highly popular Kia Optima.

How the K5 Differs from the Optima

Before the arrival of the K5, the Kia Optima catered to drivers who wanted a sensible sedan with a sporty appearance. As the Optima's official replacement, the K5 delivers more of this with a new fastback design, better engine options, and upgraded interior.

To put it simply, the quality of the K5 is vastly superior to the Optima. That's saying a lot because the Optima has been successful for a long period of time, but there is always room for improvement. Kia's team of engineers learned a lot from the Optima's success and figured out what drivers liked and what could have been improved upon in the former Optima.

In order to surpass customer expectations, Kia created the K5 as a true redesign from the ground up. It is the culmination of power and sophistication that will surprise anybody who isn't ready to unlock the K5's full potential. Prepare yourself to test-drive the best midsize sedan ever produced by Kia by learning the basics surrounding the design, performance, and technology of the 2021 Kia K5.

Kia K5 Design

A lot of the new changes are instantly noticeable from the styling of the K5. Both the exterior and interior look profoundly different, giving drivers plenty to "ooh and aah" about.

The cabin has an open layout, providing plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable in their seats. With design aesthetics like the all-new wooden trim on the dash, the K5 is highly fashionable, giving you the sense that you might be driving a luxury brand.

A sporty and contemporary exterior are the two high points of the K5's exterior. Highlights include a fastback design, 18-inch alloy wheels, and LED fog lights and taillights. All of these elements look fantastic with the muscular and angular body that is loosely inspired by the Kia Stinger.

Kia K5 Performance

Two powerful engine options are available in the 2021 Kia K5. Drivers can choose between the 1.6L Turbo 4-Cylinder with 190-horsepower or the upgraded 2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder with 290-horsepower. The latter comes with 311 lb.-ft. of torque which is best-in-class for midsize sedans.

Both engine options are run with a fully automatic Quick-Shift 8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission. Coupled with the highly-tuned sports suspension, the K5 is able to accelerate quickly and handle tight corners with ease.

The K5 also provides the option to choose between four different drive modes in Smart, Eco, Sport, and Normal. Regardless of which one you pick, the K5 stands firmly planted to the pavement, providing a smooth ride that feels comfortable.

Kia K5 Technology

The 2021 Kia K5's infotainment system is slightly tilted towards the driver and connects to the instrument panel. This driver-friendly design makes it easy to keep track of your speed and RPM without having to stress your eyes or hands to easily use the many features that come standard.

Speaking of which, some of the tech features that have drivers really excited about the K5 include UVO connectivity, wireless device charging, remote start, climate control, Kia Drive Wise, and a full 10.25-inch customizable screen.

In order to help you navigate the roads ahead, the K5 also comes with driver assistance technology such as Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision-Avoidance, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Safe Exit Assist.
