2024 Kia K5 vs Honda Accord


If you’ve started searching for a new vehicle, you have many options to consider, even if you narrow your choices to midsize sedans. Two popular options are the 2024 Kia K5 and the 2024 Honda Accord. Below, we’ll compare these two sedans across all the key areas to help you decide which is correct.

Interior Space

The 2024 Kia K5 and the 2024 Honda Accord are midsized sedans, which means they offer ample interior space. Starting with the 2024 Kia K5, you’ll find an interior cabin that looks much more luxurious than you’d expect for the price. There are premium materials throughout, and you and your passengers will be pleased with the legroom and headroom. There’s 105.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, which rivals some SUVs, while there’s also 16 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, which is more than enough for the average owner.

The 2024 Honda Accord is slightly larger inside, offering 105.7 cubic feet of passenger volume and 16.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk. Inside, you’ll find a comfortable and stylish cabin, thanks partly to features such as the redesigned seats, which help better support your torso. Overall, if you want a more luxurious experience, look at the K5; if you want more space, you should explore the Accord.


If you choose the 2024 Kia K5, you can get one of two engine options. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 180 horsepower. This engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with front-wheel drive. The other option is a 2.5-liter turbo four that generates 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with an exclusive eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. However, this powertrain setup is only available on the GT trim. If you want all-wheel drive, go for the GT-Line trim.

The 2024 Honda Accord similarly offers two engine options. The LX and EX trims use a turbocharged 1.5-liter that produces 192 horsepower and comes with front-wheel drive. A hybrid powertrain that uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors to combine for 204 horsepower is also available. This is the only powertrain on the Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring trims. Unlike the K5, Honda doesn’t offer all-wheel drive on its Accord models.

Fuel Efficiency

The fuel efficiency you can expect from both models depends on the powertrain configuration you select. For the 2024 Kia K5, going with the base powertrain setup results in EPA estimates of 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. Opting instead for the GT trim with the all-wheel-drive powertrain drops these estimates to 25/33 mpg, respectively, or 24/32 mpg if you choose front-wheel drive.

As for the Accord, fuel efficiency ratings vary greatly depending on whether you get the gas-powered or hybrid powertrain. The standard powertrain receives an estimated 29 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, while the hybrid powertrain comes in at 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the road. This makes the base Accord slightly more fuel efficient, while the hybrid powertrain, as you’d expect, is even better.

Comfort and Entertainment

When you get inside the 2024 Kia K5, you’ll find a wide range of standard features to make your experience more enjoyable. Some options include heated and ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, ambient interior lighting, and a wireless charging pad. The K5 LXS trim comes with an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system that integrates both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the other models offer a larger 10.25-inch version. Upgrading to this unit also gives you access to customizable user profiles — great for sharing the K5 with other drivers.

To get the most from your 2024 Honda Accord, explore its hybrid models. Some of the features on these trims include leather upholstery, a larger 12.3-inch touch-screen display (instead of a 7-inch display), wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a premium 12-speaker Bose stereo system.

Safety Features

The 2024 Kia K5 and the 2024 Honda Accord have the latest safety technology. Some of the standard features you’ll find in both models include forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. The Kia K5 also has a blind-spot monitoring system and a rear cross-traffic alert system available. While the 2024 Honda Accord hasn’t received a rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2024 Kia K5 received an overall safety rating of five stars, making it one of the safer sedans on the road today.
