The all-new Kia K5 brings a fresh wave of design and technology to the current sedan market. Its sleek looks and new performance specifications allow it to be its own vehicle in a crowded marketplace. At Vanguard Kia of Arlington, we wanted to let you know a bit about how the new K5 differentiates itself from its previous iteration, the Kia Optima. The K5 also remains distinct when compared against other Kia sedans, and brings a lot of new personality and options into the Kia lineup.

How Is It Different From the Optima?

While the Optima was a well-respected and well-established brand in Arlington, TX and beyond, it seems that it was due for a change. The K5 features a new name and a new design, looking much sportier and flashier than any Optima models ever did.

The interior has also been heightened to reflect a more modern age of luxuries and amenities, with a number of optional features and extras that were always left out with previous iterations - including available all-wheel drive. Unlike the Optima, the K5 comes with a focus on customization, allowing owners to adjust their vehicles to best fit their lifestyles.


The Kia K5 has seen updates in the performance department as well. The K5 will feature a new turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, with horsepower capabilities capping out around 180 horsepower. That means the K5 will see more power output and a higher acceleration than we've seen on the previous Optima model. An eight-speed automatic transmission is included as well, along with front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is also available.


The interior has also seen obvious attention, as it features a large number of improvements and available amenities. An available 10.25-inch display makes your music and audio management much easier and includes a variety of adjustable themes and quality graphics. The roominess and emphasis on comfort is obvious, providing Arlington, TX drivers with everything they could want.
