2023 KIA K5 GT-Line Vs. GT: Choosing The Best Fit

Only a few sedans let you balance family and fun, and the K5 is one of them. The KIA K5 is known for its striking design, amazing features, and efficient engine options, including a turbocharged four-cylinder making 290 horses.

The latest KIA K5 lease deal is available in four feature-packed trims, giving shoppers a range of exciting options to choose from. This article answers the frequently asked questions about the difference between the GT-Line and GT trims.


The K5 has four trim levels and provides two engine options. The GT-Line is one step above the entry-level trim, and it offers a myriad of sporty styling elements and exciting upgrades, including 18-inch alloy wheels against the standard 16s, a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen with built-in navigation which replaces the base 8.0-inch touchscreen, and a mixture of cloth and synthetic leather upholstery. It is powered by the sedan’s standard engine, a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The engine hooks up with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. It also propels the mid-size sedan to hit 60 mph in a respectable 6.9 seconds. Highlights of the 2023 K5 GT-Line include.

  • Heated front seats
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar adjustment
  • Sound-absorbing front door window glass
  • Led taillights
  • Available all-wheel drive
  • Cloth & synthetic leather seat trim with GT-line logo
  • GT-line leather-wrapped, flat-bottom, sport steering wheel
  • 25-inch touchscreen display with navigation
  • LED turn signals
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Wireless phone charger
  • 18-inch alloy wheels with gloss black machined finish
  • LED fog lights
  • GT Body Styling

The GT-Line is the only K5 model that offers shoppers the option of an all-wheel drivetrain.


The GT model is the K5’s top-spec trim and by far the most exciting of all. It features performance-oriented enhancements such as a tuned suspension, larger brakes, and a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that packs a serious punch. The engine puts out 290 hp and 311 pound-feet of torque and is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The K5 GT sprints from zero to 60 mph in a brisk 5.2 seconds. Unlike the GT-Line, the GT’s turbo-4 engine pairs exclusively with front-wheel drive. Here is a breakdown of the KIA K5 GT’s talking points.

  • Sport-tuned suspension
  • Quad-tip dual exhaust
  • GT brake calipers
  • Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters
  • 19-inch alloy wheels with gloss black machined finish
  • Panoramic sunroof with power sunshade
  • GT leather-wrapped flat-bottom sport steering wheel
  • Interior accent trim, hair line
  • GT sport bolster front seats
  • Faux leather seats trim with GT logo

In conclusion, the KIA K5 remains one the sportiest and most equipped family sedans you can lease, irrespective of which model you choose. VIP Auto Lease offers New Yorkers the latest K5 models at unimaginably affordable prices and guarantees lightning-fast delivery to your desired location.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
