Admiration comes standard

Style

YOUR EYES DON’T LIE

What you see is progressive, modern design. A stance that rules the road while never being more than a few centimetres above it. The Optima’s design characteristics are motivated by innovation and realised by art. This includes a bodyshell conceived as a single futuristic unit with an arresting silhouette. The striking front end is refined by the sharply contrasting black of the signature Kia radiator grille, bezel frame headlights and lower air dam.

High-tech LED rear lights and reflectors make sure the front doesn’t get all the admiring glances by emphasising an elegant visual flow. The coupe-like roofline, flowing smoothly into the high rear deck, merges uninterrupted with the strong roof pillar.

THE INNER SANCTUM

The Optima’s muscular athleticism is carried through to the cabin. The cockpit area is shaped around the driver with a 4-spoke multi-function steering wheel for complete control. You also have an array of technologically advanced features at your disposal. The visually striking Supervision Cluster emulates classic sports car instrumentation with its dual cylinder design. Featuring a 3.5” colour TFT LCD, it gives you essential driver information at the touch of a button.

Paddle shifters bring an exciting new dimension to your driving through their ability to make lightning-quick gear changes. Bluetooth lets you use your mobile phone without taking your hands off the steering wheel while the centre fascia is angled towards the driver, putting the audio system and climate control system within easy reach and making control and operation as simple as possible.

Engine

The Optima’s revolutionary new GDi engine improves power, performance and environmental friendliness. Go faster: highly pressurised fuel is injected directly into the engine’s cylinders, improving combustion. Go further: reduced internal friction has lead to better fuel economy. Go green: Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (DCVVT) improves engine breathing for lower emissions.


Transmission

The six-speed transmission incorporates advanced software and a unique ‘flat’ torque converter ensuring ultra-fast, smooth and precise gearshifts throughout the engine speed range.

Active ECO system

The Active ECO system optimises all the drive train elements to deliver significant fuel savings. It does so while you accelerate in comfort. The organ-type accelerator pedal lets your foot experience luxury too by allowing your foot and ankle to travel in the same trajectory as the pedal itself.

Safety

Front, Rear, Side and Curtain Airbags

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) deploys in sudden braking situations, regulating engine torque and applying braking force to each of the four wheels to slow you down safely.
