Hyundai Sonata vs Kia K5: Spotlight on Comfort

 Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata and the K5 offer similar amounts of space inside their respective cabins. For instance, they both supply 46.1 inches of legroom in the first row and 56.1 inches of shoulder room in the second row. As a result, passengers in each car are able to stretch out and make themselves comfortable during the ride.

One way the Sonata shows itself to be slightly more accommodating is with its 38.4 inches of headroom in the second row. Whether you’re giving some co-workers a ride to the office or dropping off your kids at school, any passengers in the back seats will be able to move without restraint.

Convenience Attributes

 Hyundai Sonata

In terms of convenience, the Sonata and the K5 both include Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration so you can enjoy your favorite smartphone apps and listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and more.

Both cars allow for keyless entry as well. For instance, the Kia K5 has Remote Keyless Entry that lets you access the vehicle without inserting the key as long as it’s on your person. However, the Sonata makes it possible to unlock and start the vehicle without the key entirely. The Hyundai Digital Key allows you to use your smartphone to gain entry and start the engine. Plus, you can share the Digital Key with another driver’s phone if needed.

Hyundai Sonata vs Kia K5: Safety

 Hyundai Sonata

In terms of safety, one item you’ll only find in the Hyundai Sonata is its available auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink®. The first part of this feature helps prevent you from being momentarily distracted by bright headlights of vehicles that approach from behind.

HomeLink® lets you control your home security items, such as the garage door, outside lights, and security fence, directly from inside the Sonata. Unfortunately, the auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® is not something you’ll find in the Kia K5.
