2021 Kia K5 vs 2021 Toyota Camry

Serving Morrow, GA

The Toyota Camry has been a mainstay in the car market for more than three decades, and it has proven that it has lasting appeal. However, the Kia K5 is a newcomer that is shaking up the sedan market with its stunning style and impressive capabilities. Through a direct comparison of the K5 to the Camry, which model will rise to the top of your list?


The 2021 Kia K5 has two powerful engines throughout its trim line. These are a 180-horsepower, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine, and a 290-horsepower, 2.5-liter turbo engine. These are paired with eight-speed auto transmission with a wet clutch. While the two Camry powertrains have slightly higher horsepower ratings, they fall behind in torque and fuel economy. Notably, the 2021 K5 has a broader stance that translates to superior cornering control.


The bold differences between the Kia K5 and the Toyota Camry continue throughout the exterior style and features. The K5 has a sleek profile with a seamless, dramatic flow over the roof and down the accented hood. The front-end design displays a thin, pulled grille that connects to three-bulb headlights. These lights are uniquely supported by Z-shaped orange light bars. The 2021 Toyota Camry’s exterior has a more traditional profile, culminating in a pointed nose. The diamond-like headlights have sharp points further to magnify the effect of the narrow front end.


Inside the 2021 K5, you will find either an 8-inch or 10.25-inch display screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless device charging, a 12-speaker Bose premium sound system, and other equipment. The 2021 Camry has either a 7-inch or 9-inch display screen along with a 10-speaker JBL sound system. Depending on the trims being compared, both sedans may have leather material, multi-zone climate control, smart device app integration, and more.
