Although the popularity of midsize sedans is on the decline, many look forward to these vehicles with an eager eye. The demand, however, is for those midsize sedans that drive not only well but also incredibly reliable. To cater to this demand, auto manufacturers are installing new features in their existing midsize sedans. The Kia K5 came into the limelight in 2021 when it replaced the Kia Optima. Since its introduction, the K5 has worked wonders in the segment. It is a solid contender to finish at the top of the ladder in 2022 owing to its attention-grasping design and excellent value for money quotient.
