The Kia Optima is the winner of the prestigious awards: Reddot design award – best of the best – automotive exterior design and Ecocar of the year for its environmental (or lack of) impact.
This mid sized sedan is blessed with generous proportions inside and out. The distinguished look with new front grill and headlights will have all onlookers guessing what luxury sedan is following them. Front electronically adjusted seats, dual zone automatic climate control and a class leading Infinity Audio system indicate the level of luxury that is present in the All New Kia Optima. And you never would have guessed, this one-spec model is priced very sharply at around $40,000 drive away.
The 2.4L Petrol power plant is mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission which provides a great ride on the road with great fuel economy. Gear shift paddles are present behind the steering wheel to make down-shifting a breeze while keeping two hands on the wheel. One of the unique features of the Optima is that the suspension and ride handling has been extensively tested and tweaked for Australian conditions. To top it all off, push button start and stop is present in this vehicle meaning added security, convenience and just another thing to show off to your friends.
The maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating has been achieved. Hill Start Assist Control and Cornering Headlights are other creature comforts that make this car a safer-than-most proposition.
Cabin luxury comes in abundance. The rear air conditioning vent points smartly towards the rear passengers. The massive panoramic sunroof spreads over the front and rear passengers and the size of it must be seen to be believed. In the ventilated (cold or warm) drivers seat – electronic lumbar support adjustment makes the seat fit the driver. This is pure luxury and the cool air is perfect to stop you sweating on long journeys on hot days; the warmth thaws you out first thing on a cold morning. What’s more, the Driver Seat Lumbar Support remembers 2 drivers seating positions and electronically adjusts the seat to either one at the push of a button! The Infinity sub woofer and 7 speakers produce 530 watts through an Infinity Sound System which is crisp and clear.
As an added precaution and convenience, the Kia Optima features an emergency boot release from the cabin. To fold down the rear seats you merely need to pull a lever in the boot and they automatically fold. Storage is made a breeze with this technology.
Performance LED front day running lamps, XENON HID headlights give the front end of this car a look to die for. The LED lamps at the rear give a sporty, high-tech look as well as improving safety and visibility. Reverse camera and sensors are standard on the Kia Optima.
