2022 Kia K5 vs. Its Competition

2022 Kia K5
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Kia K5 is related to the Hyundai Sonata, although the Kia offers all-wheel drive and different looks—both look great.

The Subaru Legacy has the most restrained looks of the bunch, but standard all-wheel drive on all sedans.

The Honda Accord is the standard-bearer in the class, although it’s beginning to look aged.

The Nissan Altima has available all-wheel drive too, but a much plainer interior.

The Toyota Camry offers all-wheel drive and a hybrid powertrain, not to mention a wild (for Camry) TRD edition.
