The New Kia Optima is an elegant and athletic vehicle, featuring bold styling and extensive visual consideration from Kia's designers for a truly eye-catching car. There are four trim levels available in the Optima range: the standard-level Optima 2 and Kia Optima 3. Kia Optima is also available in its Sportswagon,Hybrid and Sportswagon Hybrid versions.
Elegant and confident, the Optima is both distinctive and unique. The long bonnet will cause those who witness the car to take notice of its stylish profile; it also helps to contribute towards the aerodynamic nature of the vehicle. Highlights of the Optima's exterior include the chrome accents and the steep window beltline, which allows a higher level of road visibility for the driver. Both wider and longer than other vehicles available from Kia, the Optima has a confident road presence that will, in turn, give confidence to the driver.
Inside, the driver-focused interior is crafted from high quality materials, with an impressive level of technological features included as standard. These include the 7" Touchscreen Satellite Navigation with European Mapping, which communicates drive information as well as the multimedia and navigational systems. Air conditioning is included, and audio entertainment comes through the RDS radio and CD player, which features additional MP3 disc compatibility.
Motorists will find a 1.6-litre 134bhp engine underneath the bonnet, with six-speed manual transmission. This gives the Optima a top speed of 122 mph, and the ability of reaching 0-60mph in just 10.6 seconds. It has a combined fuel consumption of 64.2mpg, and CO2 emissions of 117g/km.
Kia has installed six airbags inside the Optima protecting the driver and front passenger, as well as the rear passengers through the use of curtain airbags. Onboard safety systems include Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), as well as the Parallel Park Assist System.
