2021 KIA K5 GT vs 2020 BMW 330i

Print Post

The Results Are in

Kia had previously stated boldly that the 2021 Kia K5 GT outperformed the BMW 330i on a number of speed and handling tests performed by AMCI Testing across dry and wet road conditions. Well, the results are in. AMCI Testing has never had a result contested or overturned so it's safe to say all the numbers are final. 

“Previously, only German-engineered vehicles were lauded for their driving dynamics. Now, with the 2021 K5 GT besting the 2020 BWM 330i in cornering and acceleration, Kia has challenged the entire midsize sedan category by elevating the standards that performance sedans are judged upon.”

-Russell Wager, director, marketing operations, Kia Motors America.


What the Numbers Say

The Kia K5 GT impressively outpaced the BMW 330i on various performance tests of the acceleration, top speed, and handling. In particular, the slalom tests and 0-60 mph test show off the engineering ingenuity Kia offers.

While all of the results above are extremely impressive, let's touch base on one other important key metric, the price. The Kia K5 GT (top trim option) is priced at $39,995 vs the BMW 330i at $49,350. Therefore, choosing the K5 GT not only gives you superior handling and performance but also savings of just under $10,000. 

Being priced for less while performing better wasn’t enough for Kia. In addition, Kia offers an unbeatable 5 year/100,000 km fully comprehensive warranty versus BMW’s 3 years/60,000 km comprehensive warranty. Additional warranty coverage for no charge is proof Kia happily stands behind and believes in their product. When you consider that BMW vehicles have the most expensive planned maintenance over the first few years of ownership while Kia has one of the lowest, the differences in cost of ownership become truly astronomical.
