2021 Kia K5: Exceptional Style Both Inside and Out

The Kia K5 delivers a great first impression with its overall design. At first look, you'll notice its bold sense of style with its wide and thin front grille that extends to the headlights and hood structure.

This carries over to the driver-centric cockpit inside the cabin. Its sporty and sleek interior design is enhanced with available features like:

  • Sport steering wheel
  • Leather-wrapped gear shift handle
  • Wood graphics accent trim
  • Red leatherette seating
  • Panoramic sunroof

With the available 10.25-inch touchscreen and standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, you'll have a futuristic feel inside the model as well.

2021 Kia K5 Interior

Powerful and Controlled Driving

When you get into your 2021 K5, you'll enjoy the thrill of one of its turbocharged engines being unleashed every time you step on the gas pedal. Standard is the 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This produces 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque for sporty, smooth, and fun performance.

Even more power is created by the available 2.5L turbocharged engine. Generating 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and matched with the 8-Speed Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission, this engine gives you powerful performance.

The 2021 Kia K5 also features an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system. This is able to distribute torque between both the front and rear wheels to give you better traction and control when roads become slippery due to rain, snow, or ice.

Advanced Safety Technology

The 2021 Kia K5 also features other cutting-edge technology. With a variety of both standard and available driver-assistive features, the K5 is able to help you stay safe and drive confidently in a variety of situations.

  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW) with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert: This system will monitor your driving patterns and alert you if it detects you are becoming distracted. It can also alert you when the ride in front of you starts to move again after being stopped.
  • Lane Following Assist (LFA): This is able to detect where lane markings are and make small steering adjustments to keep the K5 centered in the lane.
  • Junction Turning: This available system works with the standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA). When turning at an intersection, it can detect and alert you of any rides that are approaching, so you avoid a potential collision.
  • Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control - Curve (NSCC-C): Not only is this available system able to maintain a safe following distance from the ride in front of you, but it can also automatically decelerate when coming up to a curve in the road by utilizing the available navigation system.
