Start Your Engines

Kia K5 vs Honda Accord When you’re headed out for a day of shopping at Peddlers Mall, you need a model full of charisma to get you through traffic. With two Kia engines and three Honda engines to choose from, you not only have plenty of strength but also plenty of variety.

The standard 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the K5 gives you 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, Honda’s base 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine has 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque.

However, neither of the other two Honda engines (neither the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 252 horsepower nor the hybrid engine with 212 horsepower) can hold a candle to the Kia sedan’s top engine.

If you want to go fast, consider the staggering power of the optional 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the Kia K5. It churns out 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque.

Power like that isn’t experienced every day in a street model. Consider causing a stir with the extra power you can get from Kia.

Let’s Jam Out!

Put your set of wheels into drive and blast the tunes! These sedans have some strong infotainment systems at their helm. In either model, you can access your music and other apps through features, like:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • Bluetooth® connectivity

Access your compatible smartphone apps on the 8-inch touchscreen you’ll find in either cabin to pull up your favorite playlist. Then jam out on the way home from your fun day out.

While the four standard speakers of the Honda Accord might suffice, in the Kia K5, you start out with six speakers.

When you upgrade your audio system, the Accord can give you up to 10 speakers, but in the K5, you can jam out hard with the 12 speakers of the available Bose® Premium Audio System. That extra sound goes a long way to making the inside of your Kia car a concert-like experience.

Time to Head Home Safely

After a fun day on the town, getting home safe is of the utmost importance. How do the safety systems shape up when we pitch Kia K5 vs. Honda Accord?

Both have quite a few in common, including:

  • Standard Lane Keeping Assist
  • Standard Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Available Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist-Rear

For audio and visual warnings about drifting from highway lanes to alerts about vehicles in blind spots, either daily driver has you covered.

The 2022 Kia K5 goes above and beyond. Say you’ve had a long day and are ready to go home and take a nap. Standard Driver Attention Warning helps you stay alert on the way. If it detects inattentive driving (based on your habits), it will give you an audio/visual warning and may even advise you to pull over. Unfortunately, the Accord doesn’t even offer such a system.

With exclusive safety features like these, do you know which model can get you where you need to be?
