Options Under the Hood
In exploring the K5, you will find that you have two different engines available. First, you have the standard Turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that comes ready to pump out 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, providing a balanced performance on the local roadways.
If you’re looking to up the ante on engine power, you will want the available Turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. This engine will increase your outputs, arming you with 290 horsepower and a best-in-class 311 lb-ft of torque. This engine also allows the Kia to go from 0-60 MPH in an eye popping 5.7 seconds.
No matter which engine you choose, you will get an 8-speed automatic transmission within the powertrain. This will work to seamlessly distribute the engine force, providing efficient acceleration.
Top Speed of the K5
With the proper configuration and driving conditions, the K5 should max out at about 155 miles per hour. Unless you are planning on traveling on the Autobahn or a local racetrack, you won’t want to reach this speed, but it is still nice to know that this Kia sedan packs a powerful punch under the hood.
While you may not take the K5 to the track often, it is certainly capable of handling itself as you enter pole position. The sedan offers available sport-tuned suspension and Pirelli® P-ZERO™ All Season Tires, allowing it to handle quite well, offering a 0.947 maximum dry cornering G-force capability.
So, you will have the agility necessary to handle even the tightest turns, whether they come on the slalom course or downtown streets.
An Easy Driving Experience
As you ride in the K5, you will notice an extremely easy driving experience. This is thanks to the suite of driver-assistive technology included with this Kia sedan.
Take the available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist feature, for example. Using sensors, this system will monitor the roads ahead, able to detect potential obstructions and help you avoid them should they present themselves.
The K5 also offers some other great standard driver-assistive systems, like Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, and others that will work to provide a secure and seamless driving experience while you’re behind the wheel.
