Luxury Cars – 2021 Kia K5 Vs. 2021 Honda Accord: Affordable Luxury Champions
Infotainment screens aside, both contenders supply an abundance of tech for all walks of life. Dual-zone climate, smart keys, and power-adjustable seats are all fairly common for the segment, but both offer heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and more. Modern sedan buyers want safety, though, and a full range of collision avoidance measures are equipped for both. Kia Drivewise encompasses forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, leading vehicle departure alert, and lane departure warning, but buyers can spec cyclist detection as well. Blind-spot monitoring is standard on all but the base trim, as is safe exit alert. The Accord packs in Honda Sensing technologies, with collision mitigating braking, traffic sign recognition, and numerous other details, but blind-spot monitoring is only standard as you near the top of the trim ladder. Both are well equipped, but the K5 is better equipped lower down in the range.
