Prepare to be noticed

The new Optima will attract envious glances wherever it goes. With its balanced proportions, elongated contours and flowing lines, the new Optima is very much a classic in the making.


Smart technologies can be your eyes and ears on the road

The Optima has undergone an evolution. The good looks that we all know still remain, however it is now available with a potent turbocharged engine.


Optima GT Turbo

The Optima GT Turbo brings sportiness and performance to the range. It's not just mechanical changes, either. On the outside, you'll find a deeply scalloped rear diffuser, LED lighting at the rear and a sportier front bumper to complement its powerful 180 kW engine.

Instantly, you'll notice the heritage of award-winning design throughout the Optima GT. A bolder, wider interpretation of Kia's signature Tiger-nose grille can be found leading its design. A sharp, modern roofline follows suit across the top of the car, resulting in a sporty, yet stylish profile.


Innovation that adds to the drive without distraction

Methods and materials save the day
