Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Kia K5 Overview

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - July 15, 2021

What's New

Fresh off of its replacement of the Optima in 2021, the Kia K5 sedan returns with minor changes. New for 2022 is a GT-Line AWD Premium Package. The remaining updates cover amenities shuffling.

Choosing Your Kia K5

Kia offers the 2022 K5 in five trims: LX, LXS, GT-Line, EX, and GT. Prices range from $24,685 at the entry level to $32,085 for a fully-loaded K5, including the $995 destination charge.

Engine Choices

The 2022 Kia K5 offers two engine choices. Both are turbocharged. The standard engine is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This engine sends power to the front or to all four wheels utilizing an 8-speed automatic transmission. Also available is a 2.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine. This one works with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
1.6L Turbo 4-Cylinder180 hp195 lb-ft32 mpg
2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder290 hp311 lb-ft27 mpg

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The midsize K5 seats five passengers. The EPA classifies this model as a large car based on its roomy interior.

With 16 cubic feet of standard cargo capacity, the K5 has slightly more storage space than average. The K5 is not rated to tow.

Safety Features

Kia equips the K5 with its suite of Drive Wise Advanced Driver Assistance features. These include driver attention warning, forward collision warning assist, lane-keeping assist, and lane following assist. Also included on all but the base trim is blind-spot collision avoidance assist and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist.

Connectivity

The 2022 K5 comes with an 8-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth, a 6-speaker audio system, HD Radio, one USB port, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone compatibility. Among the upgrades are satellite radio, a 10.25-inch screen, navigation, and additional USB ports. A wireless smartphone charger and an exquisite-sounding 12-speaker Bose audio system are available.

K5 LX – From $24,685

The standard trim offers the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This model comes with LED headlights, 16-inch wheels, and an automatic opening trunk.

Cloth upholstery, dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen display, drive mode select, and wireless smartphone compatibility are included. Nearly all the available driver-assist safety equipment is included with the base model.

K5 LXS – From $25,685

This trim comes with keyless entry with push-button start. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is included. A 60/40 split fold-down rear bench seat with a center armrest is standard. Add $1,800 for all-wheel drive.

K5 GT-Line – From $27,085

The GT-Line closely parallels the LXS, but adds sporty touches including black exterior touches. This trim comes with LED fog lights, LED rear combination lamps, 18-inch wheels, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Kia brings in a pair of USB ports for the rear passengers. Add $1,600 for all-wheel drive.

K5 EX – From $29,585

The top of the trim line among the models powered by the base engine is the EX. This one has rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, and a wireless charging pad. Also, heated and ventilated front seats and imitation leather-covered seats come in.

An EX Premium Package ($3,600) brings in amenities not available on most trims including the Bose audio system, a heated steering wheel, and an advanced navigation-based smart cruise control system designed to manage curves.

K5 GT – From $32,085

The only model offering the upgraded engine demonstrates a sharp difference in performance from the other trims. It also gains a fast-shifting 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, upgraded brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch wheels, quad-tip exhaust tips, and sport seats. But this trim also loses a few things over the EX, including ventilated front seats and satellite radio.

CarsDirect Tip

The EX trim offers many of the popular amenities at a very reasonable price. For about $30,000, this one comes well equipped, costing thousands of dollars less than comparably equipped competitors.
