In a stylish new model generation, the Kia Optima remains an efficient, elegant saloon. The premium focus, ideal for business customers, is something every owner can enjoy.
A wider shape for the headlights and front grille gives the car an athletic, confident face. LED daytime running lights and rear fog lights add to all-round visibility, and indicators are built into the heated door mirrors. The Optima's refined design is highlighted with bright metallic accents, such as at the exhaust pipe, door handles and window sills.
Both front seats recline and slide, increasing accessibility and comfort. The driver's seat also features power lumbar support, a particular benefit on longer journeys, and the steering wheel and gearstick have leather finishes. The full black upholstery is accented by faux leather in the 3 model and racing red stitching in the GT-Line. Dual-zone automatic air conditioning helps every passenger to settle in.
Engines and performance
A 139bhp, 1.7-litre diesel engine gives the saloon the strength to carry and tow if needed. It also has pacy acceleration, covering 0-60mph within 11 seconds. The Optima can return as much as 67.3mpg combined when chosen with a six-speed manual gearbox. Intelligent Stop & Go technology developed by Kia saves fuel on every drive.
Technology and safety
All models bring you satellite navigation with European mapping. Depending on the trim level, this is easily accessed via either a seven-inch or eight-inch touchscreen. You can also make use of the Android Auto compatibility, Kia Connected Services featuring TomTom, and in-car Bluetooth connection.
The Optima is as comprehensively equipped when it comes to safety measures, maintaining a five-star Euro NCAP score. Twin front, side and curtain airbags are a standard inclusion. Drivers are supported by ABS, ESC, Vehicle Stability Management and more. All except the entry-level car now feature the intelligent Lane Keep Assist System, and top-end models provide Autonomous Emergency Braking.
