Learn About the 2021 Kia K5 Vs. 2020 Kia Optima

A new car is a big investment. You want to make sure you do the necessary research so you can make a choice you feel good about. While we don't think you can go wrong with either the K5 or the new Optima, the K5 certainly makes a strong argument for itself with its stability-enhancing wide-track suspension and all-weather drive options.

The 2021 Kia K5 is motivated by a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission. When you put your right foot down, you can send 180-horsepower to the 16-inch alloy wheels. Convenience highlights include a rear-view camera with dynamic guidelines, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for your compatible device, as well as an 8-inch touchscreen display.
