Theta II
The Optima K5 features Kia Motors' fuel efficient Theta II 2.0 engine which produces 165bhp and 198Nm of torque and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that can be manually controlled through paddle shifters.

Combined fuel consumption is rated at only 7.6 litres/100km.

NU Euro4
2013 Kia K5, they are equipped with the new "Nu 2.0 CVVL" engine that replaces the Theta 2.0 MPi engine. The all new "Nu 2.0 CVVL" engine produces 172PS of power and 20.5kg-m of torque. This will provide a maximum fuel economy of 14km/L but if you come with an "IDLE STOP & GO" option, it will achieve 14.8km/L of fuel economy. This is going to be the first Korean-made vehicles to come with a Continuous Variable Valve Lift technology ever to be on sale in South Korea".

Copy and paste from the result that i search from google, hope this will help

if you read again,

a MAXIMUM fuel economy of 14km/L...
maximum is always ideal case.....

10L/100km is a good average .....

Really? Cant achieved 8L/100km?

If 10.5L/100km average... With ron95 RM2.08/L...i need fill RM21. 84 to go 100km.. If travel 300km..need fill RM65. 52m..its that normal?

Can i improve fuel consumption by change engine oil to 5w-30 full synthetic and iridium spark plug? Or any idea to improve a bit fuel consumption? Air filter? Rims? Tyre? Gearbox oil? Tq

My experience.. If purely City drive + jam + short distance... It can reach 15L/100km on display...

Purely PLUS highway... Can get 6.4L/100km...lower of drive about 100kmph... Full tank can hit 750km or more...

Stock engine oil already using fully synthetic and iridium plugs for NU engine... Other stuffs add on maybe can help abit...

But a 2.0L sedan.. U can't expect it to behave like hatchback right.....

U shud also know there is a official K5 page in FB right? There got more information.. Search kia optima k5 club Malaysia.

Does anyone know the function of these "L" shape on each side of the headlamps ?

Do they turn on when the main light is on or when turning signal ?
