Read more about the Optima here.
This is the new generation Kia Optima, and you'd be forgiven for thinking it looks similar to the previous generation, but if you look closely there's been a lot of subtle tweaks to the whole vehicle.
As with previous Kia's the new Optima has been specifically tuned for Australian roads. It will come with a full suite of safety features and be available in two trims levels.
The base model will have a 2.4-litre petrol engine, but if you want something a little sportier the Optima GT will be available in Australia for the first time with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine.
While the wagon has been confirmed for production, unfortunately it won't be coming to Australia.
