While all trim levels of the 2022 Kia K5 line perform admirably well on the road, they are different in engine specifications. The top-of-the-line GT trim features the most powerful engine in the lineup. The 2.5-liter engine generates best-in-class power and uses an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission system to send power to its axles.
The base LX trim and the GT-Line trim have the same engine installed. However, the fuel economy rating of the K5 GT-Line is less. The difference in fuel economy rating is because of its All-Wheel drivetrain.
