Kia reveals exterior images of all-new K5 fastback sedan for Korean market
Kia Motors has published exterior images of the all-new Kia K5 sedan. Released in Korean market specification (Optima in Europe), the latest model offers a fresh and innovative new look for the sedan segment and showcases Kia’s bold new design direction.
The front of the car is characterized by Kia’s imposing new "Tiger Nose Evolution", a wide, three-dimensional design which integrates the grille and headlamps.
The profile of the K5 displays a greater sense of muscularity than its predecessor. The all-new K5 is longer and wider than its predecessor. The length of the new model has been extended by 50mm to 4,905mm and the width by 25mm to 1,860 mm. The wheelbase is extended to 2,850mm. A 20mm drop in height to 1,445mm creates a low-slung sporty profile.
The K5 will be available with a range of new 19-, 18-, 17- or 16-inch machine-cut aluminum alloy wheel designs with from gloss black to dark gray and light gray.
The new-generation K5 will go on-sale in the brand’s domestic Korean market in December. The European Optima version will arrive in 2020.
