Love the look of my K5 EX, but definitely wish our line had the fully digital dash layout that Hyundai already has. Other than more HP, it's about the only thing I would want to add to her. :)

Interestingly, Kia offers the full digital display in S.Korea on the EX with the upgrade package.
Home market K5’s also come with a rotary knob gear selector.
They obviously figured Americans were not ready to not have a physical shifter.

It’s noteworthy that you would not be able to manual shift the K5’s eight speed automatic with no paddle shifters, and no traditional gear shifter mechanism.
Note: The K5 GT does have paddle shifters.

I like both in my K5 just the way they are.

But the changing lanes display in the digital version is valuable.
The digital dash becomes available on the Sonata SEL Plus, and must have the convenience package option. iirc

As far as power, if the turbo’s boost pressure accidentally goes up 2-4 psi, say a mystery malfunction, you’re looking at 220 -230hp. Long-term reliable horsepower. The factory boost is kept low to make the fuel mileage high in CAFE testing. Just run top-tier, premium fuel only.
