Kia gave its mid-size sedan a facelift before changing its name from the Optima to the K5. One major update is the switch to the brand’s all-new N3 platform, which makes the K5 two inches longer than the Optima, one inch wider and adds 1.8 inches to the sedan’s wheelbase. The new N3 platform also takes 0.8 inches from the height of the Optima, which provides the K5 with a more athletic and aggressive stance. The facelift makes the K5 more spacious than its predecessor, the 2020 Optima, and it also features interior highlights like an aircraft-inspired shift knob, panoramic sunroof and a variety of interior upholstery options that range from elegant to sporty.
