Introducing the All-New 2021 Kia K5

Formerly known as the Kia Optima, the all-new Kia K5 sedan is shaking things up with a freshly redesigned image, modern look, and a new name.  A brand new family-style sedan for 2021, the Kia K5 is an upgraded version of the popular Kia Optima.  Aside from its newly minted nameplate, the Kia K5 also adds a plethora of exciting performance features available on the GT trim, including all-wheel-drive, Pirelli P Zero tires, and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Style & Design

Evolving from what was once a standard interior found on the Altima, the new Kia K5 adds significant upgrades to the cabin that drivers will love.  Taking inspiration from popular Kia models like the Stinger and Telluride, the all-new K5 boasts a sparkling interior that's thoughtfully crafted with your needs in mind.  The top-of-the-line GT model features your choice of jazzy red leatherette upholstery and exclusive GT-Line badging embossed onto the headrests in the front.  EX models, on the other hand, are more conservative, adding reinforced plastic trim pieces, an array of soft-touch materials, and rear climate-control vents.

On the outside, the Kia K5 sports a sloping roofline and zigzag LED running lights, which create the illusion of motion even at a standstill.  Balanced by a mixture of healthy proportions and robust lines, the K5 boasts an athletic posture that's unmistakable on the roads in Amherst, NY.  From its sharkskin-like grille in the front to the cross-panel LED light strip in the rear, the Kia K5 is hard to miss.  Engineered to be aerodynamic and fluid, the K5 maintains a sharpened exterior image that intensifies with every mile.  Sporting a variety of unique color options, including Ebony Black, Sapphire Blue, and Passion Red Tiny Coat, the K5 is one of those vehicles that's okay to stop and stare at.

Power & Performance

For the pinnacle of power and performance, the Kia K5 GT offers available all-wheel-drive and traction control rated for all-weather conditions in Buffalo.  Equipped with a 2.5-liter turbo engine, the K5 GT boasts an impressive 290-horsepower and best-in-class 311 pound-feet of torque.  Paired to a Quick-Shift eight-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, the K5 is designed for drivers seeking the ultimate sedan thrill ride.  Providing unparalleled road grip when driving over slippery terrain, the Kia K5 is highly maneuverable and agile.  Designed using light-weight materials that make for quicker response times, the K5 helps you stay grounded and in control with its available 19-inch Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Safety & Technology

The new Kia K5 comes standard with Kia's Drive Wise safety suite.  Integrated with a collection of modernized tech features that help protect your passengers, the K5 is one of the most trusted sedans on the roads in  Cheektowaga.  Standard with Smart Cruise Control with Highway Driving Assist, the all-new Kia K5 helps you maintain an adequate following distance in heavy traffic.  Using the K5's intelligent navigation system, the Highway Driving Assist safety feature pulls information to help control your steering and acceleration.  Additional advanced safety features found on the Kia K5 include:
