Kia K5: A Champion of Efficiency

How does the Kia K5 deliver such great gas mileage? Here’s a short list of how Kia makes your Latrobe drive a fuel efficient one:

  • Front Wheel Drive: With front-wheel drive, you’ve got great traction while using less gas. However, you can still get AWD for better performance and handling.
  • Drive Mode Select: Drive Mode Select lets you pick from Comfort, Eco, and Sport mode to give you flexibility in your driving.
  • Idle Stop and Go (ISG): Idle Stop and Go, or ISG, shuts your vehicle off automatically at a stop, then starts it up again when you accelerate.
