The K5, which Kia introduced in 2021, is a midsize sedan with seating up to 5. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Kia offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
