After its 2020 model year, the Kia Optima nameplate was retired for North America. However, the model lived on and took the nameplate of its overseas counterpart, that being the K5, for its next-generation redesign.
So, is the new 2021 Kia K5 midsize sedan model the ride for you? Today, here at Palmen Kia, we’ll go over the specs and features of the Kia K5 as well as the specials available for drivers at our dealership. Let us introduce you to the all-new Kia K5!
As mentioned above, the 2021 Kia K5 functions as a complete redesign of the previous Optima model, most prominently in terms of looks. Inside and out, the Kia K5 midsize sedan prioritizes a sporty style with a fastback-inspired design lifted from the Stinger to highlight its improved performance. Elsewhere, the available GT-Line and GT trim of the Kia K5 further bolster style and comfort for an incredible driving experience.
The 2020 Kia Optima comes equipped with a baseline 2.4L inline 4 engine that produces up to 185 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the baseline engine of the new Kia K5 is rated at 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, an upgraded engine option improves that to 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Additional performance highlights of the 2021 Kia K5 include available traction-enhancing AWD for all-weather performance, an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission option, and the Sport+ driving mode.
Beyond looks and power, the 2021 Kia K5 model also features a boatload of brand-new and upgraded technologies for its drivers to make use of. For comfort, entertainment, and safety purposes, some of the many options include standard Kia Drive Wise driver-assistance features, wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility, wireless smartphone charging, remote engine start, and Kia UVO link services.
