New Kia Optima

New Kia Optima

From £22,615

A sleek fusion of bold style, heart-pounding performance, and advanced technology, the all-new 2016 Optima confidently pushes the boundaries of the midsize saloon, with plenty of attitude to spare.

This new Optima saloon is marginally longer, taller and wider than the previous version, and the wheelbase has been stretched by 25mm. Kia says this allows for increased passenger space and luggage room, with rear passengers receiving a 25mm increase in leg room, as well as more shoulder room. Overall storage space has also increased, from 505 litres in the old Optima to 510 litres in the new version.

The new Optima is also stiffer than the outgoing version, with more than 50% of the body made from high-strength steel. Other advances include increased use of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic, with the aim of reducing weight in order to lower the levels of noise and vibration. The model will be available with 16, 17 and 18in alloy wheels.

The options list for the new Optima includes an electronically controlled suspension system, which allows drivers to select between Normal and Sport modes.
