All-New Kia K5 Coming Soon To Replace Optima

The all-new Kia K5 mid-size sedan is 2 inches longer, an inch wider and 0.8 inches lower than the outgoing Optima it replaces. The Kia K5 LX, LXS, GT-Line and EX trims are powered by a 180 horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine managed by an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission and goes on sale this Summer. AWD will be available in late 2020 and offered only with 1.6T engine. The GT, coming later in the Fall, is powered by a new 290 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged GDI + MPI four-cylinder engine mated to an available 8-speed “wet” dual-clutch transmission and a new all-wheel drive option.
