2021 Kia K5 Poughkeepsie NY

While some brands are retiring their midsize sedan lineup, our brand is redefining how this type of car will show up on the road. That’s because of the introduction of the all-new 2021 Kia K5 that’s ready to turn Upstate New York on its head!

Set to be available later this summer, you’ll get to choose from 5 trims at our Poughkeepsie NY dealership location:

  • 2021 Kia K5 LX
  • 2021 Kia K5 LXS
  • 2021 Kia K5 GT-Line
  • 2021 Kia K5 EX
  • 2021 Kia K5 GT (debuting in the fall)

Powerful & Bold Design

When you take a look at the all-new K5, you’ll see similar design DNA to the Kia Stinger except this sedan takes it to the next level inside & out. The interior boasts a 3-dimensional futuristic layout that's driver centric, highlighted by:

  • Newly designed infotainment display
  • Aircraft-type shift knob
  • Trim-specific mix of premium & sporty upholstery options like red leatherette seating and satin chrome metallic & wood-like dashboard & door panels finishes
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Flat-bottom sport steering wheel on the GT-Line & GT trims

The exterior of the 2021 Kia K5 gives you a modernized "tiger face" thanks to a wide & thin grille up front that extends into the structure of the hood & headlights. Here are a few of the most eye-popping design cues for this midsize sedan:

  • Low-slung fastback silhouette with a chrome garnish spanning the roofline & wrapping around the rear glass
  • Signature “Heart Beat” daytime running lights & taillights with available LED “dashes” spanning the width of the rear deck lid
  • Gloss black applique on the rear glass
  • Newly designed 16", 18" & 19" alloy wheels choices
  • Shark skin-inspired mesh design on front grille & dual chrome exhaust tip garnish of the GT-Line & GT trims

The K5 sits on the all-new N3 platform that provides a more aggressive look with a deeper center of gravity thanks to it sitting longer, lower & wider than other Kia midsize sedans. This suspension geometry also allows for sportier handling, responsiveness & stability.
