Before we dive into the 2021 BMW 330i and 2021 Kia K5 GT engine specs, let’s see how they compare on price. Here’s a quick breakdown of starting prices for both models:

  • 2021 Kia K5 GT Sedan Price: Starting at $30,590 MSRP
  • 2021 BMW 330i Sedan Price: Starting at $41,250 MSRP

That’s a difference of $10,660. There are used cars that will cost you as much as the difference in price between these two! The value discrepancy only widens when you consider that the Kia manufacturer warranty is over two times more generous than BMW’s. Why, then, would Boca Raton drivers pay extra for the BMW 330i? 

Seeing as they’re both sport sedans that advertise power and handling as a key selling point, you might then assume that the 2021 BMW 330i offers a better engine. Let’s find out!
