The family of Kia vehicles continues to evolve. With the 2021 Kia K5 hitting the market in Coatesville, Downingtown, and Gap, PA, we thought we’d take some time to introduce you to this model and its offerings.
The 2021 K5 is actually a comprehensive rebranding, taking the existing Kia Optima, giving it a new name, and remaking what the sedan game is all about in Lancaster, PA; Reading, PA; and Newark, DE. Continue reading our review of the Kia K5 to get a better idea of this Kia vehicle’s capability and offerings, then visit Jim Sipala’s Kia of Coatesville to see it in action.
K5 Turbocharged Engine Power
Let’s start with what’s under the hood of the 2021 K5. The turbocharged power you’ll have kicks in to ensure your drives are always exciting. The 1.6L turbocharged engine makes up to 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Immediately, this is a sedan that’s a force to be reckoned with here in the Delaware Valley.
Of course, you may want a little more power. The turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine—standard on the K5 GT trim—produces 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This kind of power allows you to enjoy highway drives and city travels alike. Leave the competition in the dust while you’re at it.
The K5 can be equipped with available all-wheel drive (AWD) too. Handle whatever the roads throw at you and gain the best possible traction, moving forward with all-wheel capability that handles all kinds of weather.
Kia K5 Interior Amenities You’ll Fall For
With the available 10.25-inch touchscreen found in the center stack of the K5, you’re in full control. Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ give you the ability to connect a smartphone to the touchscreen. Best of all, once you’ve done this, what appears on the touchscreen is essentially a supersized version of your phone, with your favorite apps and features at your disposal. Pick a new song to play or use your favorite navigation app to your advantage.
Speaking of navigation, use your favorite app to reach your destination in style. You can even send a text message to someone to let them know you’re on the way, or select a podcast to listen to on those long-distance drives.
When it comes to the sound inside the cabin, the optional Bose® Premium Audio System provides high-quality audio and the soundtrack to your drives. With 12 available speakers, this system provides a premium experience.
Kia K5 Safety Features
The 2021 Kia K5 is equipped with plenty of safety features that are designed to keep you and those in the Kia vehicle with you protected.
What will you find as standard features in the K5?
- Driver Attention Warning (DAW) with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
- Lane Following Assist (LFA)
Of course, you’ll also benefit from the standard rearview camera. The Rear View Monitor w/Dynamic Parking Guidance lets you see what’s going on behind you and can help you into a parking spot too.
Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) is another standard offering. When exiting the Kia vehicle, you’ll receive a warning that lets you know if an unattended passenger has been left behind in the back seat.
