  • Kia K5 LXS

This model comes standard with FWD, as well. In this setup, the Kia sedan is able to earn an EPA-estimated 27 city/37 highway MPG.1 It's also worth noting that you have the option to switch to All-Wheel Drive (AWD) in this trim.

How to Maximize Kia K5 MPG

In order to achieve maximum fuel economy in the Kia K5, there are a number of practices you can explore. For starters, removing extra weight and items from the Kia car can help you earn better fuel economy. More weight will cause any automobile to work harder and burn more gas. So, while the K5 is capable of storing that luggage from your road trip, once you return home you'll want to remove it.

Another way to maximize your fuel economy is to maintain a steady speed and avoid abrupt acceleration. Doing this will allow you to burn less fuel as you're traveling at a steadier pace, avoiding unnecessary stops, bumps, curves, and more.

There are a number of other practices you can explore. These include:

  • Coasting when applicable
  • Avoid idling
  • Shifting gears efficiently
  • Using cruise control where applicable
  • Avoiding heavy traffic when able
