2021 Kia K5 GT First Test: Front-Wheel-Drive Burnout Machine

Never forget how important the right tires are. "Power is nothing without control." That's not a quote from a notable historical figure or philosopher; it's part of Pirelli's marketing message, with the slogan plastered across billboards during Formula 1 races.

2021 Kia K5 Pros and Cons Review: Better Than Accord?

Previously known as the Optima, Kia's new family sedan tries to stand out in a competitive segment. The 2021 Kia K5 is trying to impress. This midsize sedan replaces the Optima in North America and adopts sportier styling than that of its predecessor. The Optima wasn't really known for its dynamic experience—it was a nice sedan that didn't impress or…
