2024 Kia K5: Engine Specs, Trims, Price


The 2024 Kia K5 is a handsome four-door sedan with futuristic styling that’s sure to turn heads. This midsize family sedan is ideal for a commute car, a first car for your teenager or college student, and for family road trips. Let’s learn more about this remarkable sedan to decide which trim level best suits your driving needs.

How Much Does a 2024 Kia K5 Cost?

Kia offers the K5 in five trims with varying prices. The MSRPs for the trims are as follows:

  • LXS front-wheel drive (FWD): $25,390.
  • GT-Line FWD: $26,890.
  • GT-Line all-wheel drive (AWD): $28,490.
  • EX: $29,290.
  • GT: $31,790.

The Power of the K5 Engine

The Kia K5 has two engine options. Under the hood of the LXS FWD, GT-Line FWD, GT-Line AWD, and EX trims, you’ll find a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission paired with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with an output of 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.

If you want even more power, choose the GT trim with its 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers a robust 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. The GT’s engine pairs with a mighty eight-speed wet dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

You’ll appreciate how well the 2024 Kia K5 handles with its vehicle stability management, electronic stability control, and rack-and-pinion steering systems. The GT trim has a sport-tuned suspension system with larger disc brakes, specialized GT brake calipers, and quad-tip dual exhaust, adding a throaty roar to this sports-inspired K5 trim.

Upgraded Trim Levels

One of the first things you’ll notice about the 2024 Kia K5 is its striking design. The front features a sleek grille with cat-eye-shaped LED headlights bracketed by zigzag amber accent/parking lights. You’ll notice the dropped valance with vertically stacked air scoops that add a muscular appearance to the K5. Sleek lines draw your eye along the door and body panels and the steeply sloped roofline that ends in the distinctive sporty-looking rear of the K5.

All trims have two rows of seats that can seat up to five people comfortably. The Kia K5 trims also have flexible seating configurations, such as the 60/40 split rear-folding seats to carry long items like golf clubs. Inside the trunk, you’ll get 16 cubic feet of cargo space, enough for groceries, luggage, and even gardening supplies. A hands-free power trunk lid comes standard across the K5 lineup.

In addition, all 2024 K5 trims come with Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technology, including the following:

  • Available forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
  • Pedestrian detection.
  • Blind-spot detection. 
  • Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance. 
  • A lane mitigation system. 
  • High-beam headlight assist.
  • Rear occupant alert.
  • Safe exit assist.
  • Driver attention warning with leading vehicle departure alert.

It’s easy to express your unique personality with exterior color choices, including the following:

  • Ebony Black.
  • Wolf Gray.
  •  Sapphire Blue.
  •  Glacial White Pearl.
  • Passion Red Tint Coat.

Highlights of each 2024 K5 trim include the following:


This base model has cloth upholstery, height-adjustable front seats, and heated, power-adjustable exterior side mirrors. This trim also includes technological features such as an infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, the LXS FWD has Bluetooth with multidevice connectivity.


The GT-Line FWD trim builds on the base trim by adding a combination of cloth and SynTex seat trim, heated front seats, and a 10-way power driver’s seat with two-way power lumbar adjustment. The infotainment system gets a 10.25-inch touch screen with navigation and a Kia Connect and Sirius XM satellite radio subscription. You’ll also get a wireless phone charger and sound-reducing front windows.


With the GT-Line AWD trim, you’ll get the same features as the GT-Line FWD with the addition of AWD instead of FWD. You’ll get upgraded LED headlights if you add the GT-Line AWD Premium Package. With the GT-Line Panoramic Sunroof Package, your K5 comes with a sunroof and unique LED interior lighting.


The EX K5 trim is the most luxurious of the 2024 K5 lineup. You’ll get the same features as the GT-Line trims, but it comes standard with a panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade, SynTex seat trim, heated and ventilated front seats, and air conditioning vents for the rear passengers. Add the EX Premium Package to this trim, and you’ll get a heated steering wheel, power-folding side mirrors, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, and a 12-speaker premium Bose audio system.


Thrill-seekers and those looking for a performance-oriented K5 can choose the GT trim. You’ll find most of the same features as the GT-Line FWD and GT-Line AWD trims, but with the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine and upgraded transmission. This trim also comes with front GT bolstered sports seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, and the option to add the GT1 Package with most of the same features as the EX Premium Package.

A Great Price

This sedan is affordable for most budgets, with the MSRP prices ranging from $25,390 for the base LXS FWD trim to $31,790 for the top-tier GT trim. Families can choose this sedan over more expensive SUVs and still have plenty of room for everyone and their gear. With the optional AWD system, you’ll have traction when traveling on slippery roads and all the technology and driver-assist features found on pricier vehicles.

In addition, the K5 gets good gas mileage, handles well on the road, and is easier to maneuver and park than most SUVs. The 2024 Kia K5 is a practical and affordable alternative to larger sedans or SUVs.
