Updated Kia K5 GT seen on tests

The car appeared before photo spies in its American specification with four exhaust pipes and a red line on the seats.

The Kia Optima GT “charged” sedan is already available in South Korea with a more aggressive design, the latest technology and safety features, as well as environmental features like Solar Roof. Unfortunately, it is not possible to make out the design of the novelty because of the dense camouflage, which hides many elements of the front and rear, but it can be assumed that the front has a much more aggressive design compared to the usual K5.

“For the next Optima GT, you can expect an interesting drivetrain and suspension at the next level. This will be the next level of Kia driving, ”said the brand.

If we look at what Hyundai has done with the Sonata N-Line, we can expect at least the brand new 2.5-liter Theta3 turbocharged engine with 290 hp, a new 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox and four-wheel drive.

The new Kia K5 in the American specification will have 2 different engines, all with a turbocharger, and will use 3 different transmissions. The 1.6T motor will be available with two power levels.

We initially expected the debut of the American K5 at the New York Auto Show in April, but due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and its transfer, we expect the automaker to introduce the model online.
