Every week, a little more information about the 2021 Kia K5, previously known as the Kia Optima, is released as we get closer to getting our hands on this new sporty sedan. Last week we learned that the new Kia K5 will be coming with an all-wheel drive option to give consumers even more traction on the road, no matter the conditions. Finally, after all the waiting, a price has been revealed, and it’s at par with Kia Motors budget-friendly small cars.

As far as we know, the final lineup for the 2021 Kia K5 is made up of five trims: LX, LXS, GT-Line, EX and GT. A new theme starting to appear in the auto industry, automakers are trying to combine high-performance with vehicles in their lineup not meant for such. One well-known muscle car automaker just put an engine capable of generating over 700 horsepower into an SUV, and crossovers meant to handle the racetrack are starting to show up. However, not all consumers want to be behind the wheel of all that power, they just want the look – and who could blame them? These performance-oriented vehicles are made to look hot!!!

It’s been a little while since we heard anything about the 2020 Kia Forte GT. Okay, it’s been a long while, seeing as how the last time we heard anything about this new sporty compact car was during its debut at the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. That was all the way back in November of 2018, and we learned a lot about the Forte GT and the new GT-line by Kia Motors. Now we got the final bits of information everyone’s been waiting on – the price.

Why wait? The 2020 Kia Forte has a starting MSRP of $23,215 (plus destination). Bit of an odd number, but hey, that’s a very affordable price for a vehicle straight from the new GT-line. This compact-turned-performance car comes with a 1.6-liter turbo-four cylinder under the hood, generating 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The engine is tied to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, but for those who prefer manual (with paddle shifters), it’ll cost $600 more. Assuming consumers stick with the standard setup, the 2020 Kia Forte GT is already less expensive than its competitors, like the 2020 Hyundai Elantra Sport ($24,730), 2019 Honda Civic Si sedan ($25,230), and 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI ($26,890).
