What are the pros, cons, and cost of a lifted Kia?
When I was surfing the web the other day, I came across a Kia K5 that had been lifted! I am so used to lowered cars, it surprised me—and made me wonder whether I should try it on my car. What are the pros, cons, and cost of a lifted Kia?

There’s nothing like being inspired by other car owners—-some looks just catch our eye! When it comes to the pros and cons of a lifted Kia, consider the following:
|Higher ground clearance||Difficulty getting into the vehicle—won’t be an issue with a lift of a couple of inches.|
|Increased visibility||Decreased handling ability, especially on turns—again, likely not a problem with a gentle lift.|
|Can get larger rims/tires||Poorer gas mileage—you may not notice this.|
|Aesthetic appeal (looks great!)||Cost—the least expensive lift kit will probably run you around $250 without installation.|
Oh, and one more thing to consider—if your car is under warranty, installing a lift kit may just void it if you go too high. Check the fine print!
Best of luck modifying your Kia!
Finding the right lift kit for your Kia can take more time than you plan for. First, you’ll want to research brands and costs, and then you’ll probably need to find a reliable mechanic to do the installation.
