Kia K5 Has Another Stunt Showing Off Performance

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020


Kia Motors may be talking up the next-generation new 2021 Kia Sorento recently, but don’t be fooled. The spotlight is still on the Kia K5, previously known as the Kia Optima, entering a new generation in 2021. With a starting MSRP of $24,455 (plus destination fee) for the base LX model, the 2021 Kia K5 is being set up as the new sports car by the Korean automaker. It’s a little, what’s the word – it stings a bit. The Kia Stinger received a mid-cycle refresh for the 2021 model year, the first sports car to come from Kia Motors during the design shift, and the Kia Stinger won many awards. It will still hold a special place in our hearts, but all eyes are on the Kia K5, and every couple of weeks, Kia has the K5 performing another daring stunt.

The latest stunt to come from the Kia sports car is part of a multi-layered creative marketing campaign put together to put the Kia K5 front and center whenever possible. Over the summer, the Kia K5 performed the Triple Threat Event on live television, directed by Darrin Prescott, action unit director on some of Hollywood’s most action-packed films including Baby Driver, Ford Vs. Ferrari, Drive, John Wick, Black Panther, and The Bourne Ultimatum. Hosted by professional driver Collete Davis and actor Jeremy Ray Valdez, stunt drivers Sean Graham and father-daughter stunt driving duo Jalil Jay and Brionna Lynch showed off the Kia K5 with a simultaneous jump off of two ramps and a sick u-turn.
