Everything You Need To Know About Kia K5 2022 Model

The  2022 Kia K5, an amazingly stylish and practical sedan, has been making waves in Arlington and earning praise from drivers and reviewers alike. And it's no wonder why! With its impressive list of features, excellent fuel economy, and affordable price tag, the K5 is a real winner. 


From its eye-catching design with a shark skin-inspired grille to its advanced cabin technology and comfortable seating options, this car has it all. Safety is a top priority, too, with advanced driver-assistance systems keeping you one step ahead on the road. 


Get ready and join us as we dive into all the exciting details of the 2022 Kia K5!


The design 


The front grille of the GT and GT-Line versions has a mesh pattern modeled after shark skin, and the exhaust tips have two chrome decorations. A 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque is standard power for the K5, and it is mated to a new eight-speed automatic gearbox. 


The third-generation N3 platform is advantageous for the Kia K5, which is longer, lower, and broader than its predecessor. A completely new era of bold design language from the Kia brand is introduced by its powerful, angular appearance with aesthetic influences borrowed from the award-winning Stinger. 


For a 2.5-liter turbocharged GDI + 290 horsepower with MPI four-cylinder engine and 311 lb-ft of upgraded torque K5 GT, GT variants have a blistering 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 5.8 seconds when connected to an 8-speed 'wet' Dual Clutch Transmission. The Kia K5 offers an optional all-wheel drive technology that enhances handling and assurance in both dry and wet conditions.


Advanced Technology

The 2022 Kia K5 is not just a stylish car but also a tech-savvy one. It comes packed with advanced technology features that make your driving experience more convenient and enjoyable. You have the option to choose between an 8-inch touchscreen or a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, which even has split-screen functionality. These touch screens serve as the infotainment hub, allowing you to access various entertainment and connectivity options with ease. 


The K5 also offers natural language voice recognition software, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, wireless smartphone charging, and a hands-free Smart Trunk. With these tech features at your fingertips, you can stay connected, entertained, and hands-free while on the road.


Cabin Comfort 

The intuitive cabin of the Kia K5, which is unified by its open architecture, is crammed with cutting-edge tech features and comfort amenities to improve your daily driving. To suit your style and budget, you can choose from a number of high-end and sporty upholstery options, including satin chrome metallic, red leatherette seating, and wood-like dashboard finishes. 


A panoramic sunroof and a flat-bottom steering wheel are further optional equipment offered on the GT-Line and GT trim levels.

Customization Options

When it comes to personalizing your Kia K5, the options are aplenty. Kia understands that every driver has their own unique style and preferences. That's why they offer a range of customization options for the K5. You can choose from various high-end and sporty upholstery options, such as satin chrome metallic and red leatherette seating, allowing you to create a cabin that suits your taste. 


Additionally, the GT-Line and GT trim levels offer additional optional equipment like a panoramic sunroof and a flat-bottom steering wheel, adding a touch of luxury and sportiness to your driving experience. With these customization choices, you can truly make your K5 reflect your individuality.

Trunk Area

How about the trunk area? You may have noticed the acute roof shape that results in a vertical tail that is flat and somewhat duck-like. This is really beneficial because it provides the K5 additional room for transporting heavy equipment. The maximum trunk space is 16 cubic feet, which is adequate for a car its size. 

The K5 trunk's wide opening and low floor make it even better. As a result, moving bulky objects like furniture or electronics is made simpler, and placing within requires less heavy lifting. The K5 does its best to make things simple for you, which is absolutely worth noting, even though its trunk may not be the largest in its class.



The K5 is undoubtedly another example of how Kia continues to be at the forefront of developing some of the safest vehicles on the market today. The Kia Drive Wise suite of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) is standard on all trim levels and helps you keep one step ahead of danger on the roads. 


Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Following Assist (LFA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) are all included as standard equipment.


If danger is detected, available Safe Exit Assist can warn the driver or passengers before they open their doors. Your K5 can use its navigational data to reduce speed proactively before curves with the optional Navigation Based Smart Cruise Control-Curve (NSCC-C).

Wrap up!

The 2022 Kia K5 GT not only boasts a striking design with its 19-inch wheels, four exhaust tips, and distinctive zigzag-shaped daytime running lights, but it also delivers impressive performance. Priced at quite a reasonable amount, including freight and PDE, the vehicle offers great value for its features and capabilities. 


However, if you reside in an area with long, harsh winters, the absence of all-wheel drive (AWD) on the GT trim might make it less practical for you. In such cases, considering a 260-horsepower Subaru Legacy Premier GT with AWD could be a wiser choice, ensuring better traction and control in challenging weather conditions.

It's important to weigh your options carefully to make the right decision that suits your specific needs and environment. Get in touch with us, as we have a number of electrifying models in our pre-owned inventory that suits your budget.
