The starting trim for the 2022 Kia K5 is the LX. With this trim, you can enjoy advanced technological features on the exterior and interior. The exterior features LED multi-reflector headlights, forward collision-avoidance technology, and sensors to alert you when you stray outside of the lane.

The interior has a six-speaker radio system, with the ability to connect your phone wirelessly to the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment center. Black cloth seats are a feature of this trim level, so your interior will match any of the three exterior paint options: silver, pearl, or black.

If you choose the LX, you can experience some speed with the turbocharged 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. The eight-speed automatic transmission moves the car smoothly along the road, and the extensive safety features work to keep you and your passengers safe.

2022 K5 LXS

For just a small increase in price, you can upgrade to the 2022 Kia K5 LXS trim level. The main difference with this trim level is that you can choose between forward-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The engine and performance levels are similar to the LX trim. However, there are a few more technological upgrades with this trim, such as illuminated door handles, and more USB outlets accessible throughout the vehicle. You can also open the trunk automatically with your key.

With an upgrade to the LXS trim, you can select your exterior and interior colors from a wider range of options. You can choose between black and sand cloth seats, and select one of five exterior colors for the car. However, there are a few differences between the LXS AWD and LXS FWD trims. One difference is the size of the wheels; the AWD option is outfitted with 18-inch alloy wheels instead of the 16-inch wheels that you see on the FWD trim.

With only a few differences, your decision might depend on the differences between FWD and AWD. If you live in a place with more extreme weather, like snow, you might opt for the AWD trim. This option comes with the ability to shift into “snow mode” when the road is frosty. Consider choosing the AWD trim if you live in a more urban area that doesn’t experience snow or sleet frequently.

2022 K5 GT-Line

The 2022 Kia K5 GT-Line trim is also available in FWD or AWD. Both GT-Line trim levels have more exterior design features, which amplify the sporty feel of the car. The outside mirrors come in a sleek black color rather than matching the color of the car’s body. There’s also a glossy rear spoiler on the GT-Line. Both GT-Line trims have fog lights and rear combination lamps to enhance your visibility on the road.

These trims have a few technological upgrades as well. You can set your phone on the wireless charging zone to charge it without any extra cords. The seats have specially designed faux leather and cloth materials, and a leather-wrapped, d-shaped wheel which adds to the sporty aesthetic of the GT-Line.

If you want to enjoy the comfort and high-tech elements of a luxury vehicle while capturing the feeling of a sports car, the GT-Line may be the trim option for you. There are a few minor differences between the AWD and FWD trim levels, with only a small change in price. Whatever GT-Line you choose, you’ll be driving in style.

2022 K5 EX

The next trim level is the 2022 Kia K5 EX. This trim closely resembles the LX and LXS trims, with some upgrades to both the exterior and interior. This trim has a panoramic sunroof, which makes riding in the sedan feel like a luxury SUV. With 18-inch wheels and all-season tires, your ride will be smooth and relaxing.

The EX trim has an elevated interior as well. The infotainment center is bigger, at 10.25 inches. Instead of six speakers, you’ll listen to music, radio, or your favorite podcast through a twelve speaker system, amplifying your listening experience. When you have passengers in the backseat, they can control the climate using the rear-facing air conditioning vents. To further enhance the luxurious feel, the EX has LED lighting throughout the interior.

The EX is a great trim level for people who want to maximize their driving experience. This may be a good choice for commuters, or people who spend a lot of time in the car since it prioritizes comfort and utility. Consider this trim if you don’t want to compromise on speed or satisfaction.

2022 K5 GT

The final trim is the 2022 Kia K5 GT. The exterior of this trim level matches the GT-Line, but it has a panoramic sunroof to more seamlessly combine sport and luxury. You can opt for LED projector headlights on this trim to enhance visibility while driving at night.

While the engine, horsepower, and torque of the GT are the same as the other trim levels, you can enjoy a quad-tip dual exhaust with this option. The front seat contains the GT sport bolster seats, paddle shifters, and the D-shaped steering wheel, which maximizes comfort while adhering to the active aesthetic.

This trim level is best for people who want the most out of the 2022 Kia K5. The GT trim has all the sportiness of the GT-Line trims with the comfort and technology of the EX trim. You can customize this trim more than any of the others, making it truly unique to you.
