The 2021 Kia K5 is a new, cool midsize sedan -- and it looks great. Today I'm showing you the quirks and features of the K5, and I'm going to take you on a tour of the new Kia K5. Then I'm going to get the K5 out on the road and show you how it drives.

  • Doesnt even menion the self "autonomous" driving or lane keep assist, and then turns around and gives a 1/10 for cool factor yet titles the video "Here’s Why the 2021 Kia K5 Is a Cool Midsize Sedan ." Not a good review for the car. I not a Kia guy by any means, driving one now as a rental. Cadillac Cts-V as a daily, but these reviews are gettin a little ridiculous...

  • In Malaysia we don't buy KIA, we buy Honda Toyota, because most of us buy car for investment, doesn't matter if the value is Depreciated

  • Who would purchase a $32,000 vehicle that only comes with only a 1.6L engine and 180 HP? Not to mention, it's predecessor is one of the most unreliable vehicles made in the last 10 years, plagued by engine problems and class action suits. I'll take that $32,000, add $5,000 and buy one of the most reliable vehicles ever made with 300 HP to boot.

  • I wanted him to open that moon/sunroof. Love it! I'll be flexing in this K5 like it's a luxury car. I'll buy it in 2022 as the second owner because I don't pay sticker price. Lol

  • Raining Day sounds like loading water after flushing toilet. On the side note, don’t cover moonroof and show the trunk please. Thank you. ^_^

  • About five months ago, round about the time this video came out, I bought a 2012 Optima. Before that car, I would never have considered buying a Kia. Now, I can bet my next car or two will be Kia's, especially this new K5. I love my Optima.

  • Is k5 a replacement of the optima

  • It doesn't look Coupéish, it looks Hatchbackish...

  • I have the GT line K5 in wolf gray and it's definitely way more stylish and better looking than this one. I believe this one is called everlasting silver?

  • Kia thinks a leaky toilet sounds like a rainy day. They are really in trouble, according to Doug the K5 loses 10hp in 12 minutes.

  • The pull option on the wireless charger is to pull out the small plastic casing in order to charge bigger phones with bulkier cases. So you literally will pull the black plastic out.

  • Fact check... K5 isn't a random name for Kia. It comes originally from Korea their specs are a little different from USA. That's what Kia called there optima in Korea. Love your videos can't wait to check out your new car action website. Thank you

  • Hey Doug, love your videos. I'm surprised you didn't talk about the k5 gt. Usually you go for all the top of the line models.

  • K5 looks very interesting and cool but it aint touching Mazda6 in best looking in class. Still, Camry is most fun to look at in class.

  • The American version of the K5 is so bad imo here in the Middle East we have digital gauge clusters, more interior colors and I also think the infotainment screen is a little bit bigger here, both the EX and GT-Line trims have almost all these stuff I mentioned but the American one doesn’t, if you wanna see what I really mean check out the Korean version of this car it’s same

  • I don't know man, it's actually uglier the more I look at it. Looks cool initially, and then it looks progressively worse and over done. It's trying too hard. The interior is fine especially for the price.

  • I live in South Korea. This car is actually really cool.

  • Kia has been killing the game, i bought a 2019 Forte Manual and the tech is impressive for the price. Build quality feels very solid too, parents have a Versa that they purchased for a similar price and it lacks the tech and build quality.

  • Doug raves about the adjustable fan speed in auto mode for the climate control. Every vehicle I’ve ever been in with auto climate control allowed you to still adjust the fan speed without exiting auto. And I’ve been in more vehicles with this than it’s worth listing out. I think Doug stumbled across this in the k5, and just never had in any other car and never thought to try it out.

  • I feel so sad for them cause they really impress with their warranty and price/quality relation, they make extremely good cars but their name ruins EVERYTHING. Why dont they change it? Its so ugly

  • The Kia K5 could have been made into a way more agile and better perfoming car by: 1. Giving it a proper Frt Longitudinal RWD Setup 2. Giving it a proper Sedan side profile... 3. Delete the totally unnecessary and extremely heavy Sunroof - Minus 20 - 30 kg The Kia Stinger could have been made way more agile and way faster by putting it on a diet by deleting all the unneccessary components below: 1. Delete the stupidly heavy Tailgate and replace it with a proper Bootlid and make it a proper Sports Sedan - Minus 10 - 15 Kg 2. Delete the totally unnecessary and extremely heavy Sunroof and replace it with a Carbon Fibre Roof - Minus 20 - 30 Kg 3. Delete the ugly Rear Quarter panel Reflectors - Minus Ugliness 4. Redesign the Headlights by making it it a little more elegant by removing the unneccessary downward, outer kink... - Minus Ugliness 5. Change the Steering wheel design a little - Minus blandness 6. Add Wood trim to the Interior design - Minus blandness
