Motorway slogs have never been easier. The Kia Optima is designed to go transport you in comfort with a sublime cabin, smart technologies and refined ride. The engine, a 1.6 CRDi, returns up to 54.3mpg combined with 134bhp on tap for smooth performance. It’s paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission for effortless progress and fast overtakes. Choose from ‘2’ and ‘3’ models with ‘2’ models fitted as standard with front and rear parking sensors, a rear parking camera, 7” touchscreen and sat nav. ‘3’ models pile on the kit with an upgraded 8” touchscreen, Harman/Kardon Premium Sound System, 4.3” Supervision Cluster display, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
The Optima’s sleek, sporty silhouette, distinctive LED DRL profile and sporty rear end make for a beautiful car to look at. It’s beautiful on the inside too, with soft touch materials galore and half leather upholstery on ‘3’ models.
With an electronic parking brake, reversing camera, Lane Keep Assist System and Smart Cruise Control, the Kia Optima makes everyday journeys easy. The 1.6 CRDi engine is strong and refined for flexible performance and efficiency.
If you’re here for space, the Optima offers comfortable accommodation for five adult passengers, 60-40 split-folding rear seats and a 510-litre boot. There’s ISOFIX points on both rear outermost seats and USB ports in the front and rear.
