Exploring the Kia K5 GT Line

In November I reviewed Kia’s affordable luxury trim levels on the 2021 K5 sedan. You can find it here, along with driving impressions for the vehicle. But today, I want to share with you details on the Kia K5 GT Line trim. It uses the same 180 horsepower engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, and suspension as the LX, LXS, and EX trim levels, but you get a sportier appearance. This includes black 18″ wheels, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, as well as different seat materials and a flat bottom steering wheel.

You won’t go any faster with the K5 GT Line, but you will look cooler. If you truly have a need for speed though, I would upgrade to the real K5 GT. It comes standard with 290 horsepower and sports tuned suspension.
