What's New for the 2021 Kia K5?

The Kia K5, formerly known as the Optima, features more than a name change. Kia has bolstered the engine and handling capabilities of this popular midsize sedan, along with giving the model a sportier and edgier design. All-wheel drive is now available to take the K5 confidently where you need to go in all weather conditions. There are five trims for the K5 and an abundance of impressive technology features. The K5 offers a quiet, poised, and comfortable ride. For all that it gives consumers, the 2021 K5 packs exceptional value overall.

Which Features Are Available for 2021?

The 2021 K5 family has five distinctive trim levels. The base trim is the LX, followed by the LXS, the GT-Line, the EX, and the GT. The base trim's integrated technology includes a user-friendly eight-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. A six-speaker audio system is standard on the LX trim, too. The exterior features LED headlights and 16-inch wheels.
