Kia Optima

All new Optima

Design | Destined for success

Bold Exterior

Charismatic and with muscular contours, the all-new Kia Optima draws glances wherever it goes. At a standstill, it flaunts its unmistakable 'tiger nose' grille, sharp body lines and elongated silhouette. On the road, its alluring appearance really comes to life – letting you go the distance.

Refined Interior

Exceptional design goes far beneath the surface. So it's no surprise that the interior of the all-new Kia Optima is just as stunning as its exterior. Modern, spacious, high-quality – these are just some of the words that'll come to mind while zipping around town in your on-the-go life.

Interior comfort | Tailored to busy lives

High quality materials

​Inside the spacious cabin, an inviting yet upscale space awaits you. High-quality materials include seats upholstered in top grade leather. Attention to detail is revealed in everything from the carefully chosen soft-touch materials to the natural colour palette and tasteful accents. It's quality you can actually feel.

Driver-orientated cockpit

Total immersion: the driver-orientated cockpit makes it easy to keep your eyes on the road. A quick glance at the enhanced dashboard, including the customisable supervision cluster, delivers all the information you need. Headed to an important meeting? Simply enter the destination and let the navigation system guide you. It's fitted as standard.

Panoramic sunroof

​Fitted with the optional panoramic sunroof, the all-new Kia Optima lets you enjoy a breezy open-air feeling. In fact, you might even forget it's a workday. When you've had enough sun, simply close the shade with a click.

Connectivity | Always linked to your world

Wireless charging

Low battery? No problem: Simply place your compatible mobile on the tray in the console and let it charge wirelessly. When you exit the vehicle, the foreign object detection system alerts you if a device was left on the charger. In case you need to connect, USB and auxiliary jacks are located alongside the tray.

Premium sound system

​Music to your ears. The optional high-power, 590 watt Harman Kardon Premium Sound system comes with 10 speakers, an external amplifier and Clari-FiTM MP3 restoration technology. Featuring Quantum Logic Surround for an unprecedented surround sound experience, no matter the audio source. Personal concert hall or car? We think it's both.

Kia connected services

Stay in touch on the road with Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom. Real-time information on the speed limit, weather, traffic and more conveniently appears on the vehicle display (smartphone with data plan required to activate services).

Safety | Innovations that keep you safe

A comprehensive package of safety features are fitted as standard in the all-new Optima. To help protect you and your passengers in the event of a collision, it comes with driver, front passenger, two front-side, and two side-curtain airbags, as well as a driver's knee airbag. 

Also, the vehicle's reinforced bodyshell is lighter, stronger and safer than ever. In case you begin to stray from the lane, the innovative Lane Keeping Assist System actively warns and assists you. A series of visual and audible signals send out an alert. If necessary, the vehicle's power steering system applies light counter steering torque to help you stay on track.

Driving Dynamics | Count on performance

Improved engines

Select from your choice of a 1.7 CRDi diesel engine with 141 hp or a 2.0 CVVL petrol engine with 163 hp. Both offer the optimum balance of performance and efficiency, for enjoyable driving and lower carbon emissions.

As a result of these pioneering developments, the Optima benifits from a much lower CO2 rating, and thus much lower tax, in both the manual and automatic editions.

Dual-clutch transmission

​Opt for the 7-DCT dual-clutch transmission for faster, smoother acceleration, enhanced agility, and better fuel economy. It's truly the best of both manual and automatic worlds. The fuel-saving Idle Stop & Go feature shuts off the engine when you halt at a traffic light. When the light’s green, just press the accelerator and off you go.

Suspension & Steering

A smoother ride, more dynamic handling: the innovative Electronic Controlled Suspension, developed in-house, comes as an option for 7-dual clutch transmission models. Diesel engine vehicles are fitted with a new Rack-Mounted Power Steering System driven by its own electric motor. For enhanced agility and a car in tune with your driving style.
