2022 Kia K5 EX


The Kia K5 2022 is classified as a family sedan, but its exciting design and 290-hp engine option hint at something more seductive. Sure, the sedan formerly known as the Kia Optima isn't going to dethrone its perennially excellent rival, the Honda Accord, but the K5's lineup of popular features and competitive pricing make it a strong value play. It was even named to our Editors' Choice list for 2022. Every model comes standard with active safety features and infotainment technology, and the sedan's appealing interior is complemented by a spacious back seat.

The K5 GT gets a beefed-up engine, and its tire-spinning antics will either entice or repel buyers. The base engine is mostly inoffensive, and it's also the only way to get all-wheel drive. Despite a driver's seat that is too high and ride isolation that is compromised by the largest available wheel-and-tire combination, the 2022 K5 is an impressive sedan—whether purchased for a family or not.
