2021 Kia K5 Has Arrived In Our Arab Markets With An All-New Exterior

The all-new 2021 Kia K5 is a fastback evolution of Kia’s global best-selling sedan, combining a striking new design with a driver-focused interior, cutting-edge technologies, and all-new powertrain options.

On sale across the region — including markets such as the UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Oman, and Jordan — since Friday 1 May, the sporty sedan is distinguished by greater levels of cabin accessories, high-tech safety features, and revised chassis characteristics. These cues, additions, and enhancements make the K5 more relaxing, confidence-inspiring, and engaging to drive than ever before.

Presenting Kia’s next-generation design direction, the new K5 brings with it a new fastback sedan silhouette. It is one of Kia’s sportiest designs to-date. Designed in collaboration between all three of Kia’s design studios in North America, Europe and Korea, the K5 marks a greater leap forward between generations than any of its predecessors.

K5’s Proportions :

  • The height of the vehicle has been cut by 20 mm (to 1,445 mm),
  • Overall length has been extended by 50 mm (to 4,905 mm)
  • Width has been extended by 25 mm (to 1,860 mm)
  •  The wheelbase has been extended by 45 mm (to 2,850 mm)

Longer, lower and wider than ever, the K5’s demeanor on the road is transformed into one of greater on-road stability and maximum driver engagement.

The K5 is available with a choice of 16-, 17- and 18-inch machine-cut aluminum alloy wheel designs and a wide range of paint colors.

The interior of the new K5 provides the driver and passengers with more comfort, and it sports an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen that sits alongside Kia’s new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Additional technologies are subtly integrated into the cabin of the K5, with an available Mood Lighting system, emitting soft ambient light from panels in the doors and crash pad, and wireless phone charging, the K5 also features a powerful 12-speaker BOSE audio system.
