The 2021 Kia K5 is set up to be the brand’s most powerful mid-size sedan the automotive world has ever seen. Bringing performance-ready powertrain options, an all-new platform, segment-exclusive features, and more, the 2021 K5 is changing the game for the mid-size sedan market.
After nearly a decade of the Kia Optima, the Kia K5 is taking its place and paving the way for a new era of sedans. The Kia K5 is turning a new chapter for the Kia brand, and while so many in the automotive world are shifting towards crossovers, Kia is instead completely rethinking the everyday sedan.
Automotive shoppers around Tampa Bay and New Port Richey can now reserve a 2021 Kia K5 at Friendly Kia!
Inside the 2021 K5 drivers will enjoy the convenience of an 8-inch or 10.25-inch high-resolution color touchscreen with split-screen functionality and satellite radio. Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ allow drivers to enjoy staying connected to their smartphones while behind the wheel without any worries of keeping their phones plugged in. Available wireless smartphone charging helps drivers skips the cords altogether and features a drop-in charging design.
Two different engine options are available in the 2021 K5 lineup — a 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI engine and a 2.5-liter turbocharged GDI engine. The standard 1.6-liter engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and produces 180 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. K5 GT models are fitted with the 2.5-liter variant, which is managed by a new 8-speed “wet” Dual Clutch Transmission. The K5 GT can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds and manufactures 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque.
The 2021 Kia K5 wears a shark skin-inspired mesh design on its front grille along with dual chrome exhaust tip garnishes on its GT-Line and GT models. Each K5 vehicle wears gloss black applique on its rear glass to enhance its fastback shape and rides on 16-, 18-, or 19-inch wheels. The new signature “Heart Beat” daytime running lights guarantee that heads will turn everywhere the K5 travels. The cabin inside the K5 features a mix of sporty options, including red leatherette seating and wood-like accent finishes.
