2021 Kia K5 GT and GT-Line

February 3rd, 2021 by
2021 Kia K5 GT-Line

The stunning new Kia K5 is generating a lot of buzz for its striking silhouette, performance prowess, and advanced tech features. However, the Kia K5 GT and GT-Line trims truly steal the show. Each configuration offers its own unique array of features designed to get your adrenaline pumping on Orlando roads. You may be wondering what sets the 2021 Kia K5 GT-Line and K5 GT apart from one another. Greenway Kia East compares these popular iterations of the new K5 below. 

What to Expect from the K5 GT

When it comes to performance, the 2021 Kia K5 GT holds its own even when compared against luxury rivals like the BMW 330i. In fact, the K5 GT has a faster 0-60 mph acceleration time than the 330i in addition to a better top speed and improved overall handling! In independent tests, the K5 GT went from 0-60 mph .28 seconds faster than the BMW 330i, and the GT’s all-new chassis and Pirelli P-Zero tires help it to outperform its competitor when cornering in both wet and dry conditions. 

K5 GT vs. GT-Line

So, how does the GT-Line trim stack up against the performance-inspired K5 GT? The GT takes the performance of the K5 to the next level, but the GT-Line still offers a touch of sporty style to the interior and exterior. 

Highlights of the 2021 Kia K5 GT-Line:

  • Additional sporty and black exterior treatments
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Foglights
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • USB ports for the rear passengers
  • Cloth and simulated leather upholstery
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel

Highlights of the 2021 Kia K5 GT: 

  • A 290-hp 2.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine
  • Eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters
  • Sport front seats
  • Upgraded brakes
  • Sport-tuned suspension
  • Most of the GT-Line’s styling flourishes

As you can see, the two variants share some similarities in terms of style, but while the GT-Line is equipped with a 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 hp, the K5 GT boosts engine output to 290 hp with its 2.5L engine.
