Kia Optima revealed in official picture

The New York Auto Show is about to begin and one of the brands that will be present there is Kia. The company will officially present the new generation Kia Optima, which has already been teased. Now the manufacturer has even released a picture with the mid-size sedan.

The Kia Optima seems to have an evolutionary design and has many things in common with the SPORTSPACE concept, such as the corporate tiger nose grille which is a little bit more flashy, the front bumper gills which adopt a similar chrome surround to create a more premium feel, as well as the sculpted hood and classy large alloys that provide some extra style. We expect the interior to have a large array of goodies.

The Kia Optima will be available with more engine configurations, some of them being a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated motor, a 2.0-liter turbo engine or an upgraded version of the 1.7-liter CRDi which might also be the basis of a hybrid. The sedan will be joined by the wagon version later. More details are definitely coming since April 1 is quickly approaching.
