A full 5 years after its launch in the market, the Kia K5 received a mid-life update on October 27. In the latest version, Korea’s mid-size sedan has been slightly upgraded aesthetically and technologically compared to the original.
The current generation of Kia K5, launched in 2019, has been widely praised for its design, so the Korean brand has not made many major changes in this area.
Notably, the company has only slightly changed the headlight and taillight design with a more modern LED light interface. The front and rear bumpers have also been upgraded, the front air vents now look like those on the sporty Kia EV6 GT-Line, and the rear ducktail spoiler has been made more visible.
The interior of the Kia K5 2024 uses a large curved screen that integrates two 12.3-inch screens. The physical buttons of the car have been removed. The new infotainment system allows users to update applications through an internet connection and remotely monitor/control the vehicle through a smartphone.
In addition, the Kia K5 2024 is equipped with a fingerprint reader system, online music service with 12 high-end KRELL speakers, new air conditioning controls, wireless phone charging table and small gear knob.
As always, this facelift version adds a number of new color and material options for the interior and exterior for the K5. The Korean brand also added a dark equipment package called Black Fit, in which accessories such as the wheels, roof, mirror caps, exhaust pipes or rear diffuser are changed to black.
On the technical side, the Kia K5 facelift features only changes to the suspension system to optimize comfort and better soundproofing. Powertrain options remain the same including a 2.0L 158 horsepower gasoline, 1.6L turbocharged 178 horsepower, 2.0L 144 horsepower, and a 192 horsepower hybrid.
The Kia K5 facelift has been announced in Korea with prices ranging from 27.84 – 39.54 million won (506.6 – 719.4 million VND).
