A timely reminder

It probably isn’t an exaggeration to say that most people going out to buy a new vehicle today in Bassett, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro will probably be shopping for an SUV or a pickup truck. It wasn’t long ago that midsize sedans were one of the most popular new vehicles, and it appears the sensational 2023 Kia K5 is on a mission to remind us why. The 2023 Kia K5 sits in the midsize sedan segment, but really, it’s so much more than that. With its stunning exterior styling, excellent safety, impressive performance, and available AWD, you have to question what extra an SUV can bring to the party for this kind of money.

An extensive lineup

The 2023 Kia K5 isn’t quite impersonating Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but it comes in various guises that will appeal to a pretty diverse audience. The K5 is safe, sensible, and excellent value for money at the entry-level. The range-topping K5 delivers engaging performance and borders on genuine luxury. And between those two are trim levels to suit all sorts of drivers and budgets.

The lineup starts with the LXS FWD, and then the range goes to the GT-Line FWD, GT-Line AWD, EX, and finally to the top-of-the-line GT. As you will probably deduce from the names, the GT-Line AWD is the only model that gets all-wheel-drive as part of its standard specification and the one way you can have an all-wheel-drive K5.

The driving experience

2023 Kia K5 powertrains and performance

Many of today’s cars that offer shoppers a choice of engines usually reserve their turbocharged units for the higher-spec performance models. All models have turbo power with the 2023 Kia K5, even the entry-level LXS FWD. Apart from the range-topping GT trim level, every 2023 K5 features a standard 1.6-liter turbo-four that develops 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends that power to the front or all four wheels.

If you’d like something more powerful under the hood of your K5, the GT is happy to oblige with a 2.5-liter turbo-four that provides the Kia sedan with an impressive 290 horsepower and 311 lb.-ft. of torque. This time, the power goes to the front wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (Wet Type). Like all the other front-drive K5 models, the GT has Drive Mode Select. The system allows you to select from multiple driving styles: fuel-saving ECO, SPORT, SPORT+ (with Launch Control), COMFORT, the automatically adjustable SMART, or you can create your own style with the CUSTOM mode.

Where the value happens

We’ve already established that the 2023 Kia K5 is an attractive car with solid engines and engaging performance, but there’s so much more to discover about what makes it such outstanding value for money. For a start, the K5 gets Top Safety Pick+ status from the IIHS and a full five-star rating for overall safety from the NHTSA. Every model receives active lane control and automatic emergency braking, while higher trim levels come with standard blind-spot monitors with steering assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights. A head-up display and a surround-view camera system are available options if you go as far as the EX or GT.

The base LXS has an excellent standard specification for a very reasonable price, but it will be impossible for most buyers to resist the temptation to go to the GT-Line. The GT-Line gets you synthetic leather and cloth upholstery, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 10-way power driver’s seat, and wireless phone charging. Like the base model, the GT-Line has an excellent infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, but the GT-Line upgrades you to a 10.25-inch touchscreen from the base model’s 8.0-inch screen.
