The Kia K2500 is not a vehicle with modernity in mind and has a very basic and dated appeal to it, which is evident from its plain-jane design and lack of features. However, the core aspects like torquey performance and load-carrying abilities of the K2500 are balanced with suppleness, which makes it a very capable vehicle for loading purposes.
The Kia K2500 comes with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that is housed under the seat. Coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the engine pumps out a maximum power output of 130 PS and a peak torque output of 255 Nm. The engine is torquey enough to pull off nicely in heavy load conditions.
