March 26, 2015

Korean manufacturer Kia have revealed the first image of their brand new Optima model which was posted online yesterday and shows the new 2016 model from a view of the front end of the car. The car will go on display under the bright lights of the New York Motor Show next week and we know of some of the new options that are set to come along with the car. Engine wise Kia have stated that there will be multiple selections to choose from with the new Optima with a range of turbocharged engines and diesels too. The chance of a hybrid model could also be on the cards.

The same 1.6,2.4 and 2.0 turbocharged engines which are currently found underneath the bonnet of the Hyundai Sonata are also expected to be offered with the car across other countries world wide. The main focus for the European market though is expected to be a turbo diesel setup. Brand new technology features and more space inside of the new model has also been promised by Kia but for now the company are remaining silent on what the new features will be. The image that was revealed of the new car yesterday showed the vehicle with a view from the front end of the car carrying Red paint work. Swept back headlight designs, a thin mesh strip across the front of the bonnet and two chrome surrounded front air intakes at either end of the car was also spotted. We are looking forward to the cars grand debut next week when we also expect to hear more on the specifications of the car aswell as prices and a potential launch date.
