Facelifted Kia K5 launched in Korea

By Faiming_low on 27 Jan 2018 in New model

Attached Image Kia's mid-size sedan, the K5, has been given a facelift. It is now available for sale in its home market with mostly cosmetic tweaks.

Attached Image From the front, the car receives a revised grill, headlights and a new bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights. The rear gets similarly mild changes including a new diffuser and tailights.

Attached Image New alloy wheels round up the list of visual updates on the outside.

Attached Image Inside, other than a new steering wheel design and ambient lighting, not much change can be spotted.

Attached Image Powertrain-wise, it seems like there isn't any change, with the car available with either a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol or a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol.

Haha the 250hp GDI Turbo has been dropped from the Optima. Otherwise the Stinger can't sell. 

 

Quite a pity for the Optima will be an even cheaper platform to enjoy that great turbo engine.

The 1.6 T-GDI would be a better buy than the Stinger 2.0 turbo.

 

More practical and spacious interior. The Stinger is  a lifestyle car and attracts a different target buyer group.

 

C&C should revive the Optima in its lineup.
