2021 Kia K5 on City Street

When you choose the most efficient configuration of this stellar sedan, the new Kia K5 gas mileage reaches an impressive 29 mpg city/38 mpg highway with the turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder on the base LX trim. You can expect solid 2021 Kia K5 mpg numbers no matter which trim you choose, too. If you were looking for 2021 Kia Optima mpg specs, you’ve come to the right place: the Kia K5 has replaced the Optima, updated with some looks that are sure to turn heads.

Kia K5 MPG: Powertrain Options

The 2021 K5 is offered in a variety of configurations, so you can find a sedan that is perfectly tailored to your driving needs on the roads of Meadowbrook. Rest assured that no matter which trim level you select, the Kia K5 mpg does not disappoint:

  • Kia K5 LX: Turbocharged 1.6L 4-Cylinder — EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/38 mpg highway
  • Kia K5 LXS: Turbocharged 1.6L 4-Cylinder — EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway

  • Kia K5 EX: Turbocharged 1.6L 4-Cylinder — EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway
  • Kia K5 GT: Turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder — MPG to be determined at the time of this writing

It’s tough to go wrong with a 2021 Kia K5. Whether you want an energetic 1.6L turbo or a thrilling 2.5L turbo, the K5 should be fun to drive.

Worried that the switch to the K5 means a less efficient engine? If the 2021 Kia Optima mpg numbers carried over from the previous model, you could expect 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway. So you have some improved specs all around.

Efficient Amenities

The powerful and efficient gas and hybrid engine options are just the start. To achieve the impressive Kia K5 gas mileage specs, this sedan was well-equipped with an array of fuel-efficient features. These amenities help take the Kia K5 mpg to the next level:

  • Front-Wheel Drive: FWD can be found throughout the Kia K5 lineup. This system provides ample traction while being more efficient than the available all-wheel drive systems. For drivers that want a boost in performance on Bessemer roads, AWD is available on select trims.
  • Drive Mode Select: Choose the perfect mode for your driving needs: Comfort, Eco, or Sport. If you want to maximize your fuel efficiency, opt for the Eco mode.
  • Idle Stop and Go (ISG): Kia’s ISG system automatically shuts off the engine when your vehicle comes to a stop, then immediately starts again when you begin to accelerate.
