2021 Kia K5 Lehighton PA

2021 Kia K5 Exterior Driver Side Front Profile

For two full decades, the Kia Optima has been an integral part of the lineup. While it was never the brand’s flagship sedan, it was the brand’s entry into perhaps the most popular sedan segment on the market: midsize. For the 2021 model year, the Optima will be no more, as it gets replaced by the brand-new 2021 Kia K5 as the brand continues to revolutionize its lineup. This new model has already arrived here in Lehighton PA, and we’re stoked about its sporty, luxurious new look and feel.

The beginning of the revolution for Kia was the introduction of the absolutely stunning Kia Stinger, and it has continued with almost every new or redesigned vehicle they’ve introduced since. The brand-new K5 is no different, designed with the same DNA as the Stinger and introducing another powerfully bold sedan to the lineup.

Speaking of power, there are two different possible powertrains beneath the hood of the 2021 Kia K5. The first option is a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of generating 180 horsepower alongside 195 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty of power for a midsize sedan. It’s tethered to an 8-speed automatic transmission and features Continuously Variable Vale Duration technology.

The second option takes things up a few levels. A 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder, it can delver an astounding 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft. of torque. Plus, it’s tied to the first web dual-clutch transmission the brand has ever used, an 8-speed DCT in this case.
