A Daring, New Design Identity
A catalyst for the further transformation of Kia's lineup, the K5's powerful and angular design language represents another chapter of boldness and passion for the brand.  The centerpiece is Kia's modernized "tiger face," with the wide and thin front grille extending into the headlight and hood structure. From the side, the K5's low-slung and fastback silhouette confirms the impression it was made to run, highlighted by a chrome garnish that spans the roofline and wraps around the rear glass.
 
The K5's new identity starts with the advanced third-generation "N3" platform, which will serve as the foundation for future Kia models. In this application, the platform allows the K5 to sit longer, lower and wider compared to its predecessor, resulting in its aggressive profile and deeper center of gravity for a more exciting driving experience.

  • Increased exterior dimensions in all the right places for a sport sedan look and feel
  • Length: 193.1 inches (+2 inches over Kia's outgoing Optima)
  • Width: 73.2 inches (+1 inch)
  • Height: 56.9 inches (-0.8 inches)
  • Wheelbase: 112.2 inches (+1.8 inches)
  • Suspension geometry optimized for sporty handling, responsiveness and stability
  • Increased average tensile strength and additional hot stamped parts makes for a solid body in white
  • Improved sound deadening materials result in a quieter and more premium cabin
  • Acoustic laminated windshield standard on all K5 trims
 
More Turbo. More Traction
Kia's exhilarating and efficient powertrain options unleash the spirit of the everyday driver, with a "turbocharged" lineup that includes a choice of two powerful engines. Kia engineers further pushed the envelope with an available eight-speed "wet" dual-clutch transmission for fast and precise gearshifts, plus an available all-wheel drive system for improved traction and capability.
