Kia Motors unveils new 2021 K5 sedan

Kia Motors has unveiled a new midsize sedan called the K5 in the United States, which will replace the Optima model as of this summer.

"Almost a decade after the 2011 Kia Optima paved the way for one of the auto industry’s most significant growth and achievement stories, Kia Motors America is resetting expectations once again with the reveal of the all-new K5 mid-size sedan," the company said in a statement.

Sales of the outgoing model Optima declined about 40% between 2015 to 2019 due to a shift in consumer preference from passenger cars to crossovers. The new K5 model has a new design with elements similar to Kia's Stinger performance sedan, more standard and available safety features, and additional technology.
