New name but still a stunner

The 2022 Kia K5 is a direct replacement for the car that played a big part in making the Kia brand the huge success story it is today, and the K5 more than lives up to the standards set by its illustrious predecessor. If you still appreciate what midsize sedans have to offer and you want one to turn heads as you drive through Buford, Cumming, Duluth, Atlanta, or Athens, the 2022 K5 could well be the car for you. There’s more to life than just SUVs and you’ll appreciate that fact, even more, when you take the time to investigate the all-new Kia K5 for yourself.

A magnificent seven

There are seven different trim levels when you browse the Kia website, but really there are only five for you to pick one from if you don’t consider adding all-wheel-drive justifies an entirely separate trim level. The available trim levels are effectively the LX, LXS, GT-Line, EX, and the top-of-the-range GT, but AWD versions of the LXS and GT-Line take the total trim level count to that magnificent seven. What might come as something of a surprise and what really does justify the AWD versions of the LXS and GT-Line trims being separate trim levels in their own right is the fact that none of the other models in the family can be equipped with all-wheel-drive. The LX, EX, and GT versions of the K5 are exclusively front-wheel-drive only.

2022 Kia K5 model lineup and trim levels

A turbocharged twosome

2022 Kia K5 powertrain and performance

There are two different engines and two different transmissions in the 2022 Kia K5 lineup, as well as that choice of front- and all-wheel-drive. The engine you’ll find under the hood of the vast majority of K5s is a 1.6-liter turbo-four that puts out a very useful 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and it’s the standard unit in every version of the K5 apart from the range-topping GT.

GT versions of the 2022 Kia K5 get an even more powerful and impressive 2.5-liter turbo-four which then gives the Kia a lively 290 horsepower and 311 lb.-ft. of torque to play with which gets sent to the car’s front wheels this time through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The GT is also the only model in the range that comes equipped with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for an element of manual control for a more involved driving experience.

More than a match for its rivals

The entry-level LX comes with a good set of standard equipment such as 16-inch alloy wheels, a Rear-View Monitor, steering-wheel-mounted controls, USB charging, and data ports, remote keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. However, most people will probably start at the LXS trim level which then adds the likes of illuminated door handles, a Smart Trunk, 2 USB charging ports in the rear, Smart Key w/ Remote Start/Climate, Push-Button Start and Immobilizer. The GT trim level is the sportier version of the K5 with that 2.5-liter turbo-four engine, but the EX is perhaps the most luxurious with upscale features such as ventilated front seats and Accent trim with wood graphics.
