How is the 2021 Kia K5 GT different? 

The Kia K5 has been a breath of fresh air in the midsize sedan class of the automotive industry. What was once a stale platform has been reinvigorated with performance, style and technological capability. Just because a Team Gunther Kia customer needs the conveniences of a sedan does that also mean they need to sacrifice being excited to get behind the wheel. Kia understands this better than many of its competitors. So, how is the 2021 Kia GT different from the rest of its lineup? The most glaring difference will be its performance output, which will rival just about anything else in the segment. Additionally, the 2021 K5 GT also manages to be rather fuel-efficient, even with a relatively high-output powertrain. Let’s take a look at a few things you might need to know.
