Kia America chose the concrete corridors of the Chicago to pull the wraps off the refreshed 2025 K5 midsize sedan at the opening of the 2024 Chicago Auto Show. The show played host to the sporty sedan’s North American debut, which features a new-for-K5 2.5-liter normally aspirated engine, updated design cues inside and out, drivetrain refinements and numerous tech upgrades across five trim levels: LXS, EX, GT-Line (in front or all-wheel drive) and the hot-blooded turbocharged GT.
“The K5 can be almost anything to anyone looking for a five-passenger midsize sedan,” commented Steven Center, COO & EVP, Kia America. “With a lineup of variants, including available all-wheel drive for places just like Chicago in the wintertime, the new 2025 Kia K5 continues to offer a unique and striking alternative in an otherwise stalwart segment. The updates for 2025 position the K5 in the sweet spot for those needing room for five but prefer to make a bold statement when it comes to their vehicle.”
For the 2025 model year, subtle refinements highlight more standard features across the lineup with a focus on the popular EX trim. Standard items for the EX include a Bose Premium Audio System with Active Sound Design, a 10-way powered driver’s seat includes two-way lumbar support. Digital Key 2.02, heated steering wheel, and power folding mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are all standard.
