2024 Kia K5: The Final Model Year in Canada

The 2024 model year would mark the end of the Kia K5 on the Canadian market.

  • The Kia K5 was introduced in 2021.

  • It was offered as standard with four-wheel drive.

  • Its entry price for the 2024 model year was $33,166.50.


According to information we’ve obtained, this would be the end for the Kia K5 in Canada. A few units of the 2024 model year were delivered in the country towards the end of 2023. No further units are expected to arrive in the coming months. According to our observations, only one new Kia K5 is still in stock in the dealer network in the province of Quebec. This would mark the end of this model’s adventure in our market.


It should be noted that a mid-generation update is planned for the Korean mid-size sedan in 2025, and that changes will be made at that time. However, it will be reserved for American consumers, while buyers here will be deprived of it.

The Kia K5 was introduced in 2021 as a replacement for the Optima.


The Korean sedan came standard with four-wheel drive and a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine that produced 180 horsepower. Performance-seeking customers could also opt for a GT version with front-wheel drive. This was powered by a 2.5 L, four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 290 hp.


In 2022, Kia sold 323 units of the K5 in Quebec.


These are tough times for Kia cars. By the end of 2023, both the Rio and Stinger have been phased out.
