As a brand-new model for the 2022 model year, the 2023 Kia K5 carries over with just a few minor changes for the new model year. With head-turning good looks and a pair of turbocharged engines to choose from, this exciting mid-size sedan is poised to take the fight to top contenders and you can have yours with a visit to North Country KIA near Oceanside CA today.

What’s Changing for 2023

For 2023, the base-level Kia K5 LX is gone from the lineup, making the feature-packed Kia K5 LXS the opening salvo in this high-performance cavalcade. That means features like dual-zone automatic climate control and sport seats are now standard, though they simply carry over from the 2022 version of this same K5 trim.

The only other change regards the all-wheel drive option which is now only available on the Kia K5 GT-Line. All others will be pulled along by the front wheels alone, marking a relatively minor but important change for those shopping all-wheel drive K5 models.

Performance Options

With the standard 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Kia K5 makes 180 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque out of the box, no matter which model you decide to bring home. Of course, if you want some additional power to play with, the Kia K5 GT makes great use of 2.5-liter turbocharged four-pot powerplant that delivers 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque and shifts it through a rapid dual-clutch eight-speed automatic gearbox.
