When it comes to finding the right midsize sedan, Nicholasville, Lexington, and Frankfort drivers have a lot of choices to consider. It's for that reason the team here at Car Town Kia has put together this 2021 Kia K5 review. It will provide you the opportunity to explore a few of its defining attributes within the categories of performance, safety, and convenience. Read on to find out if the K5 has what it takes to be your next set of wheels, and contact us with any questions.

2021 K5 Performance Capabilities

We'll start things off by discussing the two engines the K5 uses to hold its own out on the open road. These are listed below:

  • Turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine
  • Turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine

The 1.6-liter engine comes standard under the hood of the 2021 K5. Whether you're running errands around town or taking a trip across the state, its 180 horsepower has what it takes to get you from Point A to Point B quite effectively. The available 2.5-liter engine is even more impressive with its 290 horsepower.

Speaking of being impressed, the 2021 Kia K5 fuel efficiency is certainly worth mentioning here. Its EPA-estimated 29 city/38 highway MPG ensures there's likely more than enough gas left in the tank when you arrive at your destination.*  

2021 Kia K5 Safety

The K5 supplies you with a robust array of safety features to help keep you and your passengers safe throughout your travels. You're sure to agree Lane Departure Warning is one such feature. It comes to your aid if you begin drifting into a neighboring lane. This standard aspect of the 2021 Kia K5 will likely come in handy during longer drives to help you remain focused.

The standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection feature can be a big help as well. It acts as another set of eyes and monitors the area directly in front of your Kia car. It will apply the brakes if it determines this is necessary to help avoid a potential impact or to help lessen the damage from an unavoidable collision.  

A Look at Convenience Features for the K5

On the 2021 Kia K5 dashboard, you'll find an 8-inch touch-screen large enough for you to view and access any controls while still being able to pay close attention to the road ahead. The available 10.25-inch touch-screen helps out even more in this regard. 

The available wireless phone charger frees the cabin of those pesky charger cords while allowing everyone on board to have a fully charged phone no matter how long the drive might be.

The 2021 Kia K5 Is Waiting To Be Discovered
