Just as the previous generation Optima one of Kias best-selling models worldwide, its striking design stands out on the road. From the inside out its an exceptionally well-refined machine, passionately designed and obsessively crafted to exceed expectations. The overall proportions, the brands hallmark Tiger-nose grille, the slim and wide wrap-around the corners headlamps, contemporary surface details, sharp body lines and creases, all contribute to a wide look and strong road presence. The interior looks just as sporty as the exterior. The cabin is modern; driver oriented, offers great technology and has great-perceived quality materials. The Optima maintains its athletic identity from the previous generation but rides on a chassis that is longer, wider and stiffer for improved ride and handling and a more spacious cabin. It can be selected between two different engine variants among others the revised 1.7 – liter turbo Diesel, which can be combined with the new seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The Optima was and still is a fresh alternative in the midsize sedan segment, and it amplified a five-year design-led transformation that propelled Kia to record-setting success.
