Today we will show you a video published by Kia Motors America on YouTube showing how the new Kia K5 flew in the air and turned 360 degrees while jumping between two slopes on the track driven by a professional driver in a show that is worth watching.
As many ArabGT followers may remember, the last time our team talked about the new Kia car was last month, when we had official information about the facelifted 2021 Kia Stinger and we also talked about the K5 car.
It’s worth noting that K5 name has replaced the old name, Kia Optima in global markets. After K5 name was limited to the Korean market only, now Kia has stopped using the name Optima for this Korean sedan.
