Kia’s brand-new Optima — sorry, K5 — was, but the svelte new sedan is already finding its way to dealers. Pricing for the full K5 lineup was announced on Monday, and despite a number of big upgrades over the 2020 Optima, the new K5 isn’t much more expensive.
A base K5 LX will run you $24,445, including $965 for destination, which is just $100 more than a 2020 Optima. (Note: All subsequent prices include this destination charge.) But even this most basic trim is really nicely equipped.
