New Kia K5 in Altoona, PA

Check out the 2021 Kia K5: A Handsome, Budget-Friendly Addition to Any Driveway

The 2021 Kia K5 is an impressive family sedan thanks to its affordable price, its upscale features, and a surprisingly responsive 290-hp engine option in the sporty GT trim. The Kia K5 comes in 5 trims: LX, LXS, GT-Line, EX and GT. In all trims, the K5 is stylish inside and out, with an elegant, comfortable cabin.

The 290-hp GT model comes with a performance suite that can give you scorching speed when you need it. Even the base powertrain has satisfying performance, while the higher trim engine is capable of the kind of instant acceleration that can make your day driving around State College.


Raising the Bar

Kia completely redesigned the Optima and renamed it K5 for 2021, to match the sedan's global identity. The sedan has an imposing exterior and a genuinely luxurious interior. The Kia K5 is also available with all-wheel drive.

In terms of refinement, the standard Kia K5 engine and the quiet cabin provide a well-mannered driving experience. There's a roomy back seat and an equally roomy trunk, making it a very attractive alternative to more pedestrian crossover SUVs, especially with the optional all-wheel-drive system. No wonder the 2021 Kia K5 made the Car & Driver Editors' Choice List.


Most 2021 Kia K5 models are powered by a 180-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that matches up with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine comes standard with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional, but not on the GT model.

The full-performance GT trim has a more powerful 2.5-liter turbo-four that generates that 290 horsepower we talked about. The sportiest K5 is also fitted with bigger brakes, a unique suspension, and wider tires on larger 19-inch rims.

New Lincoln Aviator Co-Pilot360™


When you look inside, the new Kia K5 looks remarkably plush for the price tag.

New Lincoln Aviator SYNC® 3 Applink™


The K5 comes with a standard 8.0-inch or optional 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system enclosed in a sizeable piano-black bezel that also contains the gauge cluster. Both systems are user-friendly with a volume knob as well as physical buttons on the steering wheel. The Kia K5 is available with a 12-speaker Bose audio system for those who want premium sound.


The 2021 Kia K5 earned a Five-Star crash test rating, the best ranking available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It was also named a Top Safety Pick+, the highest honor conferred by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Key safety features include standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and available blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. 


Kia provides one of the best warranties of anyone in the automotive industry. Its limited powertrain coverage is the longest of almost any automaker, matched only by its corporate cousin, Hyundai. The limited bumper-to-bumper warranty gives you coverage for five years or 60,000 miles. The powertrain warranty lasts even longer, protecting major components like the engine and the transmission for 10 years or 100,000 miles.
