New Kia Optima | Harlow & Stevenage | Ken Brown KIA


New Optima receives a refreshed design, new engines and an expanded range of technologies which will further broaden its appeal.


In terms of exterior design, the revised front bumper, new LED tail-lamps, fog lamps and the ‘tiger-nose’ grille feature a new bright chrome finish which create a more sophisticated, purposeful appearance.

In addition, Saloon models also feature a new rear bumper design.

A new paint colour, ‘Runway Red’ replacing the ‘Temptation Red’ is available, as well as new designs for the Optima’s 17 and 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels.


Inside, the cabin features a newly-designed steering wheel and satin-chrome trim on the centre console which extends across the dashboard. Reversing camera with New Driving Rear-view Monitoring is now standard on all models.

Also available in the new high-performance Optima Sportswagon GT only, is the same 2.0 T-GDi engine as used in the Stinger, here producing 241bhp.
