The K5, which is loved by customers and is leading the mid-size sedan market, has further strengthened its merchandise by reflecting customer preferences.
Kia launched the K5 model year change model ‘The 2022 K5’ on the 24th (Thursday) and went on sale.
The 2022 K5 has secured attractive product competitiveness by applying the new Kia emblem and basicizing various specifications preferred by the main customer base for each trendy-prestige-noblesse-signature trim, while minimizing the price increase.
In addition, in the case of the hybrid model with a dedicated design, a bolder and more dynamic style was realized. The existing horizontal pattern tiger nose radiator grill has been changed to a shark tooth pattern reminiscent of shark teeth. It inherits the existing shark skin grill design concept, but it is characterized by a bolder and more sophisticated refinement to enhance the sense of luxury. In addition, the grill material also has a strong impression by applying black high-gloss paint.
In the trendy trim and prestige trim, convenience specifications that were not in the existing trim were applied as standard. The basic trim, Trendy, has a leather/heated steering wheel, and the Prestige standardizes the front parking distance warning specification, thereby enhancing product quality. (※1.6 gasoline turbo model applies all trim D-cut leather/heated steering wheel as standard, excluding rental car)
In addition, the Noblesse trim and the signature, the top trim, have improved the convenience of customers by applying the smartphone wireless charging function, which was previously operated as an option, by default.
