We have presented cosmological models in five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein space-time with a variable gravitational constant () and cosmological constant (). We have investigated Einstein’s field equations for five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein space-time in the presence of perfect fluid with time dependent and . A variety of solutions have been found in which increases and decreases with time , which matches with current observation. The properties of fluid and kinematical parameters have been discussed in detail.
