Can I stream music on the stereo in the 2021 Kia K5? 

There are several automakers that are all but abandoning cars as a platform that will available to their customers. Kia is not doing that, and in fact, they have introduced a new sedan to its roster for the first time in a while, the all-new K5. In many ways, the latest addition to the Kia sedan lineup is replacing the Optima, but the outgoing model’s contribution to the brand won’t soon be forgotten. We already know that the new sedan will have strong performance specs and fuel economy scores. But, a lot of people visiting the Team Gunther Kia showroom want to know, ‘Can I stream music on the stereo in the 2021 Kia K5?’ Yes, they can. The 2021 K5 will be equipped with one of the most advanced audio systems Kia has available. Let’s take a closer look.

Can I play MP3s in the Kia K5?

The heart of the sedan’s media streaming capability is its infotainment system. An 8-inch touchscreen will control most, if not all of its functions from its spot atop the center stack. Some upper trims offer a 10.25-inch touchscreen as an available option. Every 2021 Kia K5 will have AM/FM radio and be able to stream MP3 files through the standard six-speaker stereo system.  

When it comes to modern file types to store music, most people use streaming services. The 2021 Kia K5 had its audio system to meet this requirement. All five 2021 Kia K5 trim grades support wireless and standard access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites. This means just about any app a person would use on their phone can be easily used while driving the 2021 Kia K5.  

Wireless smartphone charging is also available. It is standard equipment on the EX 1.6T and GT 2.5T trims and available as an optional feature on the GT-Line 1.6T model. 

The 2021 Kia K5 is available at the Team Gunther Kia showroom right now. Make an appointment with one of our product experts today if you would like to schedule a test drive.
