Which to Pick 2022 Nissan Altima or 2022 Kia K5 Post


Decisions, decisions. When it comes to midsize sedans, there are a lot of choices. Maus Nissan wants to play a little game of would you rather with the top two contenders - the 2022 Nissan Altima and the 2022 Kia K5.

The 2022 Altima is a powerhouse with its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. Stability ensues with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) available to the front wheels or all four. A rare treat in this sized vehicle! If you’re feeling sporty, check out the SR trim that features a smooth 2.0-liter turbo, paddle shifters and a sport suspension. But, if there’s one thing that can’t be beat it’s the seductive seating. Relax in the supportive yet cozy seats that will have you volunteering as tribute to run errands. The inside offers a fresh and modern design. Features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital touchscreen and 15.4 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk give the Altima a nice little glow up. Available on most trims, the Safety Shield 360 includes a full menu of driver assistance technologies.

If you’re still associating Kia with dancing hamsters, you might be in for an eye-opener with the 2022 Kia K5. Designed as a replacement for the Optima, the K5 features a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an 8-speed transmission. Smaller than the Altima’s and also predictably a little choppier without the smoothness of the CVT. Higher trims do offer sporty alternatives for adventurous drivers. Complete with a futuristic design both outside and in, the sleek instrument panel and infotainment system will surprise and delight buyers. Beware of tighter legroom though so maybe Uncle John should drive his 2022 Nissan Altima. Standard features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, USB ports and some driver assistance technologies as opposed to the Altima’s full suite.

So, which one is right for you? Let’s not flip a coin for this decision. Kia offers good standard features and a dependable warranty but if you want more bang for your buck, the Altima is a complete package with great fuel economy, all-wheel drive options, those amazing seats and don’t forget about MausCare! Come visit us at Maus Nissan and see for yourself why the clear winner is the 2022 Nissan Altima.
