Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia K5 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Kia K5 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia K5, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is somewhat more expensive 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Kia K5 have similar Destination Charges.
