Searching for the best sedan for your Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood, NJ, travels? There are many stylish options to choose from. Two that stand out are the 2022 Nissan Altima and the Kia K5. However, how do you know which is the right model for you?
In this Altima vs. K5 comparison, our team at Cherry Hill Nissan will help you find out. Below, you’ll see these models go head-to-head in the areas that you care about the most, allowing you to make an educated decision based on your unique style and needs.
Let’s jump right in!
When looking for the right sedan, peeking under the hood is a great way to start.
Though each of these popular models delivers a smooth and spirited performance, there are some differences to note.
The standard engine in the Kia K5 is the 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder. It generates up to 180 horsepower and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This allows you to easily maneuver through city traffic, with streamlined guess-free shifting.
On the other hand, the 2022 Nissan Altima has a little more oomph under its hood. With its standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, you’ll experience up to 188 horsepower for a slightly more dynamic drive. What really gives this sedan an edge, though, is its Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). It streamlines shifting for acceleration you may prefer.
In addition to engaging drives, these sedans are ready to keep you away from the pump for longer.
These two sedans have the following EPA-estimated fuel efficiencies:
As you can see, these two ratings are fairly similar. However, the Altima is constructed with a 16.2-gallon fuel tank that allows you to journey over 630 highway miles before needing to refuel.
You’ll have to stop at the gas station sooner with the K5, since its 14.8-gallon fuel tank means you can only go around 560 highway miles before refueling.
You’ll be happy to know that when it comes to safety, both the Altima and the K5 give you the peace of mind you need.
Each sedan is standardly equipped with a suite of driver-assistive technologies to elevate your awareness and help prevent collisions, such as:
Also available in the 2022 Nissan Altima is Traffic Sign Recognition. This system intelligently reads the road and alerts you to detected do not enter, speed limit, and stop signs.
Unfortunately, a comparable system isn’t available in the Kia K5, so you may miss out on an essential piece of driving information.
Clearly, the Kia K5 has a lot going for it. However, if you want a powerful performance and the latest and greatest safety technologies, we think you’re going to love the 2022 Nissan Altima. There’s only one way to find out for yourself!
