2022 Kia K5 Trims & Specs

There are five trims available for the 2022 model year, with two of these configurable as FWD and AWD. The range starts with the LX and progresses to the LXS, GT-Line, EX, and GT. All but the GT are powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine producing 180 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission on models with the smaller engine, with LXS and GT-Line models being available in AWD.

Standard features on the 2022 Kia K5 include automatic dual-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and forward collision avoidance assist. Moving up through the trims adds smart key with remote start and rear blind-spot collision avoidance assist, 18-inch wheels, and a leather steering wheel. The GT-Line features a 10.25-inch touchscreen display, wireless phone charging, navigation, and combination cloth and Syntex upholstery. The AWD version adds heated front seats. EX models include front seat ventilation, a panoramic sunroof, and reverse park distance warning.

GT Models feature a 290-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a dual-clutch transmission, sport bucket seats, and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Kia K5?

Not only has Kia built a stunning midsize sedan in the new K5, but it has been priced appealingly, too. The base LX begins at an MSRP of $23,490, undercutting the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. The LXS costs $24,490, the GT-Line is $25,390, and the EX goes for $27,990. Topping the range is the GT at $30,490, which is several thousand dollars less than the fully loaded Accord or Camry costs. On the LXS, upgrading from FWD to AWD adds $2,100 but also includes heated seats, while the GT-Line can be had with AWD for an additional $3,700, but also adds the Premium Package. All of these prices exclude tax, licensing, registration costs, and Kia's $965 destination.

Additional Packages

The LX has the fewest number of options on offer, with the most notable individual upgrades being remote start for $450 and an electrochromic mirror with HomeLink for $350. On the LXS, the major available upgrade is AWD which is bundled with heated front seats for $2,100. The mid-range GT-Line offers much more, with the GT-Line AWD Special Edition Package adding a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation, highway driving assist and more for $800. However, this does require upgrading to the AWD & Premium Package for $3,700 as well. If you don't need AWD, the GT-Line's Premium Package on its own goes for $1,600 and equips full LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, LED interior lighting, wireless phone charging, and smart cruise control. On the EX, the EX Premium Package costs $3,400 and includes the bigger touchscreen, navigation, a 12-speaker Bose sound system, and much more. The powerful GT can be upgraded with the $4,000 GT1 Package with highlights like ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and the Bose sound system.

🚗What 2022 Kia K5 Model Should I Buy?

In our opinion, the GT-Line feels like the most well-rounded trim level to buy, starting at just $25,390. This trim level rolls in sporty bodywork, black 18-inch alloy wheels, cloth and synthetic leather trim, and a power driver's seat among other features. We'd then add the GT-Line Premium Package for $1,600, which adds a panoramic roof, LED headlights, wireless phone charger, and adaptive cruise control. With this package equipped, you'll pay just $26,990 for a K5 GT-Line with FWD. The EX trim adds nice options like an available 10.25-inch display and ventilated front seats, but we'd spare the savings and stick with the GT-Line, which looks sporty and keeps wireless CarPlay and Android Auto on its smaller screen. When the GT arrives later in the year, it might be our model of choice, but until then, the GT-Line is the K5 to have.
