The Kia Optima is dead. Long live the Kia K5. With this rebirth of the Kia midsize sedan model, we’re very interested to see how the 2021 Kia K5 compares to its contemporaries in the North American automotive market. Therefore, we’ve chosen to compare the K5 to the Hyundai Sonata model, which went through its own serious overhaul and redesign for its 2020 model year. From Palmen Kia in Kenosha, Wisconsin, it’s the 2021 Kia K5 vs the 2020 Hyundai Sonata!
If compared against the Kia Optima of the previous generation, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata would hold its own. However, the redesigned 2021 Kia K5 offers a far superior performance experience to that of the current Sonata. Additionally, that claim goes beyond sheer engine power. Let’s also take a look at some of the additional features announced with the 2021 Kia K5 debut:
12-Speaker Bose® Premium Audio
Acoustic Laminated Windshield
Active Sound Design
Adrenaline-Fueled GT Model/Trim Level
Aircraft-Type Shift Knob
Flat-Bottom Sport Steering Wheel
Normal, Smart, Sport, and Custom Drive Modes
Rear Occupant Alert
Red Leatherette Seating
Satin Chrome Metallic and Wood-Like Interior Finishes
Smart Key with Remote Engine Start and Smart Trunk
“Sound of Nature” Ambient System
