Power, Ride And Handling
The Kia K5 is powered by a 180-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission and front- or AWD (all-wheel drive). The GT model packs a bigger,(260-290) horsepower turbo engine with front-wheels drive.
We found the base engine to be sufficient and more comfortable for daily driving duties. It’s a good match to the K5, striking a good balance of performance and fuel ability. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord both have base engines that are more powerful and efficient.
The enthusiast in us choose the bigger turbo engine in the K5 GT. On top of the engine is upgraded and more powerful., it has improved brakes, suspension, and exhaust to make it a well-tuned sport sedan without sacrificing any of the practicality of the K5. There’s just one thing: We wish it were available with all-wheel drive (AWD).
The only trim of the K5 available with AWD is the GT-Line. You can only take it with the base engine, but AWD makes it more suitable and stable for snowy climates and gives it better traction on dry pavement.
We have spent 100 of hours driving and evaluating. this generate the midsize sedans, including this Kia K5.
including the base engine, the Kia K5 gets a combined fuel economy rating of 31-MPG with front-wheel drive and 28 MPG with all-wheel drive(AWD). That’s about on par with the competition, but it’s worth noting that the Camry, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Sonata all offer hybrid powertrains that are much more efficient than the K5.

We know we say this about every modern Kia, but the K5 feels like a most expensive and strong car on the inside. The materials are nice, and we love the intuitive infotainment system, especially with the 10.25-inchs screen that you get in all but the base trim. The siting compartment are comfortable, but the driving position is a little awkward for some of us and took us some getting used to.
We found the rear seats roomy enough for adult comfort, but just barely. It has 35.2 inche of rear leg compartment. That’s the same as the Nissan Altima, and measurably less than the Honda Accord with 40.8-inches and the Camry’s 38.0-inches.
The 2024 Kia K5 is one of the best-looking midsize sedan on the Indian market, and the ability-oriented K5 GT takes it up another notch. The K5 new GT-Line offers some of the same sporty design and final touches, but without having to step up to the GT’s 290-300horsepower engine.

KBB Vehicle Review And Rating Methodology
Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S.(united state) and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust and dirt settles, we have our ratings.
We necessary new ratings every times an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicles comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicles receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years marks) with a minor facelift, often with updated to features and high tech technology.
Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying .or leasing.
Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was make? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, sfe your family, making you feel like you have made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you are finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle and personality)
We take each vehicle we test through the simple — parking, lane-changing, backing up, boot space and loading — as well as the necessary — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, good build quality, strong materials quality, convincement.
