Kia’s four-door executive car comes with distinctive looks, excellent performance and refinement, and the manufacturer’s generous helping of equipment and technology on all specifications.
The Kia Optima’s 1.7-litre diesel motor provides a maximum of 134bhp at 4,000rpm, and is available with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission*. The 239Nm of torque available between 2,000-2,500rpm guarantees a highly assured performance at the lower and middling speeds typical of urban or suburban roads. The engine’s fuel efficiency and low emissions, meanwhile, make the Optima ideal for domestic or business customers.
Fuel economy ranges from 47.1 to 57.6mpg, and emissions can be as low as 128g/km.
A lengthy wheelbase of 2,795mm enables excellent stability and body control, as well as contributing to the vast amount of head and legroom in the vehicle’s comfortable interior. Standard driver convenience features on all models include Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, a USB port, a satellite navigation system with a seven-inch screen, and a satellite radio.
*Available on the 2 Luxe, 2 Tech and 3 variants.
