2021 Kia K5 Release Date and Available Features
Recently, Kia announced that they would be “getting rid of” the Kia Optima. However, instead of discontinuing it, they have rebranded it as the Kia K5 for the 2021 model year. Besides having a new name, this model is also sportier than previous years. In this post, we will be talking about the 2021 Kia K5 release date and available features you can expect to find in this model. Read on to learn more about this upcoming model.
When will we see the 2021 Kia K5 at dealerships?
While we don’t have a specific release date, we do know that it will start to be available in the summer. First, we will have access to the LX, LXS, GT-Line, and EX trims. The GT trim will be available for sale in the fall. We also don’t have any current updates on the official price.
Available Features of the 2021 Kia K5
As we mentioned above, the 2021 Kia K5 will be sportier than the Kia Optima. This is thanks to the available performance features. The K5 will have a 2.5-liter Turbo engine that produces as impressive 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a Quick-Shift 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. This transmission uses a wet clutch to provide performance similar to Audi and Porsche. Available all-wheel drive will provide optimal traction and control by distributing power between the front and rear wheels.
Available technology features will also make you feel like you’ve traveled to the future. The 10.25-inch touchscreen comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. Five USB ports make it easy for everyone to charge their phones or take charge of the music. Bose® speakers provide a concert-like experience right into the cabin of the Kia K5.
