Remember when you first watched MotorWeek? John Davis telling you about the latest vehicles as they go through the slalom or along the roads near their Maryland studio. 

They are still on the air! They’re giving awards. This year, the Kia K5 was named MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards for Best Family Sedan of 2021!

MotorWeek’s editors conduct upwards of 150 car and truck reviews annually. They evaluating vehicles on an array of factors, including: price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records, and resale value. The Drivers’ Choice awards are based on these thorough evaluations.

The results are simple. The K5 sedan has pushed the boundaries of design and performance in its class. An all-turbocharged lineup puts the K5 up front with a great combination of performance and efficiency both on the highway and around Mankato. 

With comfort for five, the K5 also entertains with comfortable seating and in-car technology that engages. You can now get wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a clever wireless charging port that tucks your phone out of sight. 

Enthusiasts will enjoy the 290-horsepower K5 GT that adds a handling package designed to take on the roads along the Minnesota River. Meanwhile, the K5 GT-Line and LXS is available with all-wheel-drive, designed to conquer the winter months here in South Central Minnesota. 

The 2021 K5 adds to the number of Kia models recognized by MotorWeek in their annual Drivers’ Choice Awards. Last year, the Telluride and Niro brought home these awards. Several other Kia models have also been named to this popular television show’s accolades in the past.
