2024 Kia K5: Choosing the Right Trim

If you’re uninterested in an SUV or minivan but still need a roomy car with four doors, the 2024 Kia K5 should fit like a glove. A legitimate competitor for the class leaders like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the 2024 Kia K5 boasts sleek styling and a modern interior that makes this midsize sedan feel a bit more youthful.

Offering a choice of powerful turbocharged engines and the option of all-wheel drive (AWD), the K5 is also a worthy competitor to cars like the Nissan Altima and Subaru Legacy.

Powering the K5 LXS, GT-Line, and EX is a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The GT-Line offers the option of AWD.

Move up the GT trim, and you’ll get a 290-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and the same 8-speed automatic but with the addition of paddle shifters.

Another feather in the K5’s cap is the standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a coverage period no competitor (other than the Hyundai Sonata) can match.

Prices provided are current at the time of publishing.

What’s New:

The 2024 Kia K5 carries over with only one significant change: the addition of heated front seats to the front-wheel-drive GT-Line.

Our Recommendation:

The Kia K5 GT-Line offers the best combination of value, features, and safety. Toss in the optional Premium Package, and you get adaptive cruise control and more driver-assist systems while keeping the price under $28,000. The GT-Line also is the only trim with optional AWD.

2024 Kia K5 LXS: $25,390

The K5 LXS trim showcases Kia’s prowess in the bang-for-your-buck department, offering a surprising number of features at a very modest price.

First up is Kia’s Drive Wise driver-assist suite, which, in the case of the LXS, includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping assist with lane-following.

The LXS’s high-beam headlights automatically turn on in low-light situations and dim when sensing approaching traffic. Safe Exit Warning, a driver-attention warning, a rear occupant alert, a rearview camera, and a leading vehicle departure alert round out the Drive Wise equipment roster.

A quick walk around the LXS exterior reveals 16-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, illuminated door handles, and auto on/off LED headlights.

Smart Key keyless entry employs a proximity key fob that alerts the vehicle to your presence. You can unlock the doors and start the car without taking the fob from your purse or pocket. Stand behind the K5, and the trunk automatically opens.

The LXS cabin is equally well appointed, with cloth upholstery covering manually operated and height-adjustable front seats. The driver enjoys a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, a 4.2-inch driver information display, and a one-touch up/down power window.

Amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, a 60/40-split folding rear seat with a center armrest, illuminated visor vanity mirrors, and back-row USB charge ports.

The LXS’s infotainment system consists of an 8-inch color touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 6-speaker AM/FM/HD Radio audio system.

With the $1,125 destination charge, the 2024 Kia K5 LXS costs $26,515. On a 60-month loan at 5% financing and $0 down, the monthly payment comes to $500. See 2024 Kia K5 LXS models for sale near you

2024 Kia K5 LXS includes:

  • Blind-spot monitoring – Using radar, the K5 can detect cars traveling in your blind spot and warn of their presence. The K5 also alerts you of potentially dangerous cross-traffic when backing out of a driveway parking space.
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control – The K5’s dual-zone climate controls give the driver and front passenger a say over their temperature settings.
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto – Wireless connectivity means the only time you’ll need to take out your phone is to charge it.

2024 Kia K5 GT-Line: $26,890 (FWD), $28,490 (AWD)

The GT-Line adds more features and a sportier look. It’s also the only K5 trim offering the option of all-wheel drive.

The GT-Line distinguishes itself with blacked-out exterior styling elements, LED fog lights, a rear spoiler, outboard mirrors with integrated turn signals, and 18-inch gloss-black alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero all-season tires.

The GT-Line seats feature cloth bolsters with synthetic leather inserts in black or red. The driver’s seat gets upgraded to a 10-way power adjustable unit with 2-way power lumbar support. A leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and black headliner complete the look.

The GT-Line’s infotainment system is a give-and-take prospect. The give half is the addition of a 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Kia Connect apps. The take portion of the deal is the loss of the wireless feature for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Oddly, a wireless charging pad is standard, although somewhat redundant since you now have to plug in your phone to access its music, messages, and apps.

The GT-Line Premium Package ($800) adds an enhanced forward collision warning system, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, Junction Turning (warns of danger when making a left turn across traffic), LED projector headlights, and Highway Driving Assist that, on certain highways, can autonomously steer, brake, and accelerate.

The GT-Line Panoramic Sunroof Package ($1,000) requires the Premium Package, adding a panoramic sunroof, LED interior lighting, and gloss-black exterior accents.

With the $1,125 destination charge, the 2024 Kia K5 GT-Line costs $28,015. On a 60-month loan at 5% financing and $0 down, the monthly payment comes to $529. See 2024 Kia K5 GT-Line models for sale near you

2024 Kia K5 GT-Line includes:

  • Power driver’s seat – The GT-Line’s 10-way power driver’s seat includes 2-way power lumbar for better lower back support.
  • 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen – The GT-Line’s 10.25-inch touchscreen provides more real estate for displaying maps, icons, and art.
  • LED fog lights – Bright LED fog lights help cut through dense fog and rain, allowing a better view of the road ahead.

2024 Kia K5 EX: $29,290

The EX brings a more luxurious image to the K5, retaining many GT-Line extras, such as the 10-way power driver’s seat, wireless phone charger, and 10.25-inch infotainment system upgrade.

Building off the LXS content, the EX adds a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, and color-keyed side mirror housing without the GT-Line integrated turn signals.

Interior upgrades include heated and ventilated front seats, LED lighting, synthetic leather upholstery, rear seat air vents, and wood trim accents.

The EX Premium Package adds another $3,600 to the bottom line. It adds 2-position integrated memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, a 10-way power passenger seat with 2-way power lumbar support, power-folding exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals, one-touch up/down power windows, and 12-speaker Bose audio system.

The package also features more driver-assist systems, including navigation-based adaptive cruise control (which can slow the K5 for curves in the highway, if necessary), front parking sensors, rear automatic emergency braking, enhanced automatic emergency braking with Junction Turning, and a 360-degree Surround View Monitor.

The Safe Exit Assist gets upgraded with power-activated rear child door locks to prevent the door from opening when it’s unsafe.

With the $1,125 destination charge, the 2024 Kia K5 EX costs $30,415. On a 60-month loan at 5% financing and $0 down, the monthly payment comes to $574. See 2024 Kia K5 EX models for sale near you

2024 Kia K5 EX includes:

  • Ventilated front seats – The EX’s front seats circulate cool air through the perforated upholstery, helping keep occupants comfortable and dry.
  • Panoramic sunroof – The EX’s sizeable panoramic sunroof makes the cabin feel open and airy.
  • Available Bose audio – Great road trips require great music, and there’s no better way to listen to your favorite tunes than through 12 Bose speakers backed by a powerful amp and subwoofer.

2024 Kia K5 GT: $31,790

If you love to go fast, the GT trim won’t disappoint. It features a 290-hp turbocharged engine, a performance suspension, GT performance brakes, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The GT rides on 19-inch alloy wheels and features a panoramic sunroof, GT exterior styling accents, quad-tip exhaust, a rear spoiler, and integrated side mirror turn signals.

Thickly bolstered sport seats replace the K5’s standard seats. They’re still heated; the 10-way power driver’s seat has 2-way power lumbar support. The GT-Line’s flat-bottom steering wheel also joins the fray.

Optional on the GT is the GT1 Package ($4,200), which features much of the same equipment as the EX Premium Package and adds back the ventilated front seats.

With the $1,125 destination charge, the 2024 Kia K5 GT costs $32,915. On a 60-month loan at 5% financing and $0 down, the monthly payment comes to $621. See 2024 Kia K5 GT models for sale near you

2024 Kia K5 GT includes:

  • 2.5-liter turbocharged engine – The GT’s turbocharged engine pumps out an impressive 290 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque, capable of rocketing the car to 60 mph in just under six seconds.
  • Sport seats – The GT’s well-bolstered sport seats hold you firmly in place during spirited drives.
  • GT upgrades – Kia enhances the GT’s brakes, suspension, and steering, giving this K5 bona fide performance sedan credentials.
