5 reasons to buy the 2023 Kia K5

1. Eye-catching GT trim

The 2023 Kia K5 GT is a tour de force with two turbocharged engine options: a 1.6L 180-hp GT-Line base model to start, or a 2.5L 290-hp GT model if you're looking for something sportier. Front-wheel or all-wheel drive options are available as well, which befits a vehicle that can hit 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). And all that power doesn't sacrifice fuel economy. All 2023 Kia K5 trims (except for the GT, which sacrifices a bit of mileage for the added horsepower) get an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

2. Suite of multimedia features

The 2023 Kia K5 offers the future of gadgetry at your fingertips. Headquartered in a 10.25-inch touchscreen is an intuitive multimedia interface with integrated navigation, smartphone connectivity, and a suite of USB and wireless charging options. Whether you're commuting to work or road-tripping with friends and family, you'll love that the six-speaker audio system comes standard with HD Radio, MP3 capability, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration, as well as Bluetooth® connectivity.

3. Smart wheels with the GT-Line trim

Front-wheel drive is standard on the GT, LXS, and EX trims of the 2023 Kia K5. But if you're expecting rough weather or off-road adventures, the Kia K5 GT-Line has you covered with all-wheel drive. With enhanced traction control, the wheels on the GT-Line will help keep the rubber on the road when you need it most.

4. Driver aids

Seamlessly integrated alongside the multimedia features in the 2023 Kia K5 is a bevy of driver-assistance technologies. Sensors installed around the exterior help with lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and rearview parking assistance. The GT-Line also sports front-seat heating and a heated steering wheel (with mounted audio controls), which is especially handy in winter.

5. Spacious seating for five

If you're shopping for a midsize sedan, the 2023 Kia K5 is an ideal choice. In addition to all the tech and oomph, the K5 offers a surprisingly spacious interior. For family and friends in the back, there's 35.2 inches of legroom, and a generous 46.1 inches in the front for you and your co-pilot. Plus, heating and storage features provide premium customizability throughout the vehicle. Front and back passengers can control their own seat temperature, and a variety of seat backs and side pockets can handle all your storage needs.
