New Kia K5 For Sale in Riverside, CA

Experience the Evolution of the Midsize Sedan

When Kia first launched the Optima nameplate twenty years ago, it challenged the notion that an upscale midsize sedan couldn't be affordable. The Optima revolutionized the segment, delivering a nearly unbeatable blend of style, features, comfort, and value. Today, Kia once again shows its penchant for progress, taking the midsize sedan to the next level with a new bolder aesthetic, enhanced performance, and available all-wheel-drive. Oh, and a new name as well. Introducing, the all-new 2021 Kia K5.

Design and Accommodations

The K5 evolves the understated sportiness of its predecessor, with a new assertive yet elegant design language to match its athletic character. Wider, longer, and lower to the ground, the K5 features an aerodynamic, swept-back profile that looks ready to pounce. The ridged hood plunges down to the bold "tiger nose" front fascia, and dynamic, deep-set narrowed lighting clusters bookend the wide black grille.

On the inside, the Kia K5 demonstrates its sophistication with an uncluttered dash, high-quality materials, and intuitively arranged controls. The K5 accommodates up to five riders, with cushioned and supportive seating and plenty of headroom and legroom throughout the cabin. Amenities like standard dual-zone automatic climate control and available heated and ventilated seats ensure passengers can stay comfortable no matter the exterior conditions.


A turbocharged 1.6-liter engine takes center stage as the base engine of the Kia K5. Generating 180 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, it sends power to the front wheels through a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Also new for the 2021 model year, LXS and GT-Line trims can now add the improved traction and control of all-wheel-drive.

For Corona driving enthusiasts seeking more get-up-and-go for their daily drives, the all-new Kia K5 GT finds its motivation in a turbocharged 2.5-liter powerplant that helps the midsize sedan reach its full potential. Paired with Kia's first eight-speed dual-wet-clutch transmission, it generates 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. According to the automaker, K5 GT can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in an estimated 5.8 seconds.


The Kia K5 equips upgraded Bluetooth technology that allows you to connect two devices simultaneously. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto work wirelessly, seamlessly integrating essential smartphone functions with the eight-inch or available 10.25-inch touchscreen display.

The available Smart Key proximity entry system unlocks the doors automatically when it senses the key fob. And with Kia UVO link services, you can use your smartphone to remotely lock and unlock the doors, start the engine, set climate controls, and more. Other available notable tech features include a 12-speaker Bose premium sound system, an eight-inch head-up display, and wireless smartphone charging.
