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.

Performance

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.

Interior

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.
