Formerly known as the Kia Optima, the K5 enters the Kia lineup in 2021 to replace the Optima with more performance, a sleeker appearance, and sportier interior accents. This fantastic new addition also gets enhancements for 2022 to make it even better, featuring Kia's new logo and more standard features across the trim levels.

As standard, you will have cloth seating only for the base model, while going up a trim level brings synthetic leather upholstery, offering more comfort for long road trips. On the top trim, you will find front sport bucket seats that will hold you in place as you enjoy the fantastic performance that the K5 has to offer. Some of the interior features include a leather-wrapped shift knob, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated steering wheel, heated front seats, power-adjustable driver's seat, and front power windows.

2022 Kia K5 Exterior Styling & Features


Sleek and sporty are only a few of the K5's exterior characteristics, riding on 16-inch alloy wheels as standard. However, higher trim levels bring 18-inch and 19-inch wheel options in various styles and finishes. As standard exterior features, you will find LED headlights, high beam assist, LED daytime running lights, LED positioning lights, solar glass, heated side-view mirrors, splash guards, and matte black skid plates. The exterior enhancements are a rear spoiler, dual muffler, sport grille, black bumpers, automatic folding side-view mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, LED fog lights, and a panoramic sunroof. All in all, the K5 is indeed a good-looking sedan, featuring bold exterior accents as well as smooth lines, and the front end incorporates the grilles and the headlights elegantly into the design.

2022 Kia K5 Performance & Specifications

There are two engine options for the K5, with the standard engine being a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The base engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission to drive the standard all-wheel-drive system, giving you exceptional traction and handling in various road and weather conditions. Upgrading to the top-of-the-line trim brings the larger 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, increasing output figures to 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque, pairing with a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission to drive the front wheels.
