The Kia K5 has come a long way from its beginnings as a humble Optima. The K5 has upped its "wow" factor to drive better and retain an enhanced value than something like a lower-spec BMW 3 Series. 
-
The K5's eight-speed dual-clutch upshifts hard in Sport+ mode and downshifts smoothly in any mode. There's also Sport and Normal—and is always civilized, always responsive, always does what you want it to do. The 2.5-liter turbocharged engine has tremendous torque—311 lb-ft, nearly off idle. It's smooth, sounds good, and you'll notice its 290 horsepower could easily pass for 300. 
-
The steering is communicative and quick, and the chassis feels tuned for people who specifically want to drive for the sake of driving. It's firm and confident, and one of the key parts that make this car what it is: an excellent sports sedan.
-
The Kia K5 includes features such as ventilated seats, Highway Driving Assist, lane keep and radar cruise control, a heated steering wheel, ventilated seats, and more. Other interior equipment that comes with the GT1 package includes a Bose sound system, a reactive and lag-free 10.25-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, and a power front passenger seat with adjustable lumbar, just like the driver's seat. Just getting the GT trim of this car also nets you fake leather seats, a GT-exclusive flat-bottom steering wheel with very reactive paddle shifters, heated seats, and a wireless phone charging slot. Your rear passengers will also get an HVAC vent. 

-
A lot of cars sold today are trying to please everybody. This Kia definitely isn't. It's trying to please people who drive for the sake of driving, but at the same time because of the great driver assist technology and the really fantastic 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, it's perfectly fit for every day use.
