Turbocharged Engine Power Heightens the K5 Experience
With the entry-level K5 engine, you’re set for adventure. Turbocharged power kicks in to ensure the 2021 Kia K5 provides a thrilling ride every time you take the wheel. This 1.6L turbocharged engine makes 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. However, if you’re looking for a bit more power, you may want to choose the Kia K5 GT trim.
With this trim of the K5, you’ll have a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power, you’ll be enjoying those highway drives while leaving the competition in the dust.
Don’t forget that you can equip your Kia car with available all-wheel drive (AWD). Your K5 can handle changes in road surface for all-weather driving performance that keeps you moving forward.
An Interior That Puts You in Control
The optional 10.25-inch touchscreen in the center stack area of the K5 puts you in control, while standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ make it easy to connect your smartphone to the screen itself. Once you’ve done so, your favorite apps will appear on the touchscreen, just as they do on your phone. It’s that kind of familiarity that helps you navigate the screen as you’re driving.
Speaking of navigation, you’ll be able to use your favorite navigation app to reach your destination in style. This smartphone capability also makes it easy to send a message to let someone know you’re on the way or to choose a new song. Look out, though, you may be fighting for control with your co-pilot when they realize how fun it is to play their favorite songs!
When it comes to sound, the available Bose® Premium Audio System delivers the soundtrack for your drives. With 12 speakers available, this is a system that delivers.
