Kia K5 Well Done

Love the K5! The tech options are great. The car is great and drive smooth. Love the 4 different drive modes to try. Seats are incredibly comfortable and interior is sleek. Kia is now a true player in the aoto business. Quality product at a great price.

I have only had my K5 for a week so I may still be in the honeymoon phase, but I am more impressed with this car the more I drive it. It looks killer and I have gotten a lot of stares and double takes. I am 6'2" and have plenty of room with some to spare. My only complaint so far is the upgraded EX package with 10" screen is missing wireless Android Auto and CarPlay. How is it that the standard stereo as this feature but not the upgraded version? I did quite a bit of research before the purchase and feel a little misguided, even from Kia's site and the dealer. It is not a deal breaker and the Bose system sounds amazing. However for the cost of the upgrade and all the other fancy tech in this car I don't get how this feature is missing!

Thought I wanted an SUV for hauling stuff. My mistake. The roomy trunk in the K5 serves all of my hauling needs. I love the gas mileage I'm getting and all of the safety features.

My new 2021 Kia K5 is the second Kia I've owned. I've owned it now for 3 weeks, and the honeymoon is far from over! :) Please note, the K5 NOT just a upgraded Optima. It's a re-invention of the Optima, in many positive ways. Kia's exterior styling of this car caught my eye big time. The performance is, in my opinion, exceptional. But it's the interior design that will make you fall in love! Kia has thought of pretty much everything as far as a driving experience. Kia has several trims available for the K5. I chose the EX. And the toughest decision for me was; which color?!?! hehehe I picked the Passion Red. In conclusion; It's stylish, and sporty; but not over the top gaudy. Expect stares from people.

Third Kia I have owned. Best value for the money in price and warranty. Very dependable. Kia just keeps outdoing themselves in body style and options.
