Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Kia K5. The Kia K5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Kia K5, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia K5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Kia K5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much slimmer than the Kia K5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda Civic is slightly shorter than the Kia K5, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Kia K5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Honda Civic and the Kia K5.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia K5.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Kia K5.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K5.
