Kia K5 Performance & Efficiency

A midsize sedan like the 2021 Kia K5 is quite complementary to the driver who is often commuting to work or just looking for an efficient performer. This year's base trim comes equipped with a Turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-Cylinder engine. With regular unleaded gasoline, it produces 180 horsepower, giving your driving experience that extra push.

But for the commuting driver, what can they expect when it comes to Miles Per Gallon? The EPA-estimated fuel economy shows that it can achieve 29 city/38 highway/32 combined MPG.*

Interior and Comfort

As you'll be spending quality time inside your new Kia, you should enjoy a little luxury! The 2021 Kia K5 comes standard with a SOFINO Leatherette trim, making your ride smoother than ever. Another standard is the sleek Piano Black interior trim, which only goes to further complement the experience. But space is not sacrificed for style!

The 2021 K5 holds a total of 121.3 cubic feet of interior volume. Breaking it down further for you, that equals to 105.3 cubic feet for passenger volume, while leaving a solid 16 cubic feet for cargo space. This model gives you the space to transport friends, family, and co-workers, while giving you the ability to store the essentials for that remote office visit or a long weekend getaway.

Entertainment & Technology

The Kia K5 comes standard with all the bells and whistles a modern drive could desire. It begins with an 8.0-inch touchscreen that allows you direct control over your Kia vehicle while interfacing with all your digital devices. And thanks to the included Bluetooth® wireless technology, you'll have hands-free access to those devices.

That doesn't even exhaust the possibilities when your Kia K5 is also compatible with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. Thanks to Bluetooth® you can access multiple apps, like Google Maps™ for our Android users, for instance. Our Apple users can directly access and communicate with Siri®.

Or, looking for something to listen to? You can call up a playlist from either of your Apple or Android devices. This latter delight is bolstered by a 6-speaker AM/FM/HD Radio Audio System, so you'll really feel those tunes!

Safety Features

Sometimes the most important question in the car buying journey is: "How do I feel inside?" We understand that safety is a key feature among current and prospective buyers. The 2021 Kia K5 comes standard with a suite of technologies designed to give you that peace of mind knowing that drive time is good time, grouped together under the Kia Drive Wise banner.

Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technologies complement the urban commuter. For example, their Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection is a nice feature for city driving. It operates independently of the driver, quickly applying the brakes to help prevent or lessen the effects of an imminent collision.

And with Pedestrian Detection, it especially gives city drivers an edge to help those pedestrians who happen to walk out into the road-helping to potentially save both you and them from collision or injury.

Another handy feature of the Kia Drive Wise suite, especially for city drivers, is the Rear View Monitor w/ Dynamic Parking Guidance. This activates when you put the transmission into reverse, flicking the Rear View Monitor into displaying a live feed of what's behind your Kia vehicle.

To make parking easier, this feature includes guidelines that will appear on the Rear View Monitor that turn with input from the steering wheel, making parking a breeze.
