Kia display their brand new Optima model
Kia have been spotted testing the new Optima over the months and there has been some speculation as to what we can expect to receive from the new model. Although all information was not revealed, the brand have released the first image of the car for us all to check out online as they have also revealed a reveal set for New York next week. The new image posted shows the new design direction in which the Korean firm are taking the model and also show it in a Red paint design with other colours expected to be offered too. The new carries two air vents at either end of the front of the car surrounded by chrome trimmings. Throw in some swept back headlights and a thin chrome design spanning the front end of the car connecting the headlights and the new Optima is looking very special indeed. It is clear that some design styling has been taken from the brands Sportspace concept design including the 'tiger nose' style grille. When the car launches here in the UK it is expected to be offered with a 1.7 litre turbo diesel engine. Other countries though will receive more options like turbocharged 1.6, 2.4 and two litre engines found in the Hyundai Sonata. Kia also state that they will be offering more in technology and space inside of the vehicle compared to that of the previous Optima. The new model debuts at the New York Motor Show next week.
