Available Multimedia Features in the 2021 K5
Owners of the 2021 Kia K5 will control much of the vehicle’s multimedia features through an 8- or a 10.25-inch touchscreen interface. All five 2021 Kia K5 trim grades will have access to a full suite of smartphone-compatible applications from the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites. Team Gunther Kia customers choosing models of the K5 with the 8-inch touchscreen will be able to connect to the applications without getting tangled up in additional USB cords.
People with the larger digital interface will still require wired connections to the Kia infotainment system.
Bluetooth® connectivity is old hat at this point in the world of automotive technology. Kia, however, has made the next generation of this technology an option on the top two 2021 Kia K5 trim grades that will allow multiple devices to connect to the Bluetooth® signal simultaneously. Additionally, the same two top-end K5 models will offer wireless charging capability to keep mobile devices charged and ready to use at all times.
