The all-new Kia K5 replaces the Optima as the midsize sedan in the Korean automaker’s lineup for 2021. Sporting much sharper looks, a higher-class interior and more advanced technology, the K5 comes standard with a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower. Performance enthusiasts will be better served by the available turbocharged 2.5-litre engine, however, as it delivers 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. Yep, we’re still talking about a Kia.
