Is the KIA K5 fast?

If you're a racetrack-dominating supercar owner looking for a new family sedan, you won't find the Kia K5 to be a high-speed vehicle. For everyone else, the Kia K5 will be a brisk thrill ride. Packing a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, the standard K5 produces 180 horsepower. That's more than enough for daily duties and some respectable speed. But, speed and power are taken to the next level in the Kia K5 GT. Equipped with a thrilling turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder, the K5 GT lets loose 290 horsepower - good for a plenty fast 5.2-second 0-60 mph run.

What does K5 mean for KIA?

As for the specific meaning of the K5 moniker, there isn't any real one to speak of, and it's just an orderly way to designate models. The Kia vehicles you know and love in North America, like the Sorento and Forte, are actually sold in South Korea under similar designations. For example, the Kia Forte is referred to as the Kia K3 in Korea - but it's mostly the same car underneath. Similarly, the Optima was named the K5 in Korea, and now we know it by the same name.

Is the KIA K5 replacing the Optima?

Yes, but only technically. The K5 is not so much a replacement as it is a shift in identity. Prior to 2021, the Kia K5 was simply the name that the Optima was sold as in the brand's home market of Korea. Now, the K5 nameplate is what the Optima goes by in North America too. In essence, the Optima was updated for 2021 with not only new features, power, and style, but a new name as well.
